  1. I thought that it was cool that Tupac wanted to change issues in society and that he was different from today's rappers. Your presentation had a lot of depth and information which you seemed to have mastered. Something you could have done better was to be less fidgety but other than that everything was good.

  2. You guys both did a good job on your presentation, I really liked how you talked about how he was an icon not only for his music but for his entire life's work of being an activist for black people's rights. I also thought it was interesting how he wanted there to be more real classes that can be applied to real life situations versus learning volleyball in gym class. THe only things that could be better is I would have liked to hear more about his music.

  3. I thought it was cool how you guys focused on his beliefs and his works as an activist, instead of looking just as his music which i think is what most people know him for. I like the little interview you had of him with him talking about school, it was interesting to hear.

  4. I really liked how you went into detail about Tupac, instead of just talking about his music. I loved how you guys included the video on Tupac, because it really gave us a good idea of his attitude towards life. This video also showed us how he was a very intelligent guy, even as a 17 year old kid. A lot of good information was given in this presentation, and I feel like I know why he would be considered iconic after listing to it.
    If I had to pick out something that I was not to big on in this presentation, it would probably be that it kind of felt like a lot of information was thrown at us. It was awesome on how much you included in this presentation, but it felt a bit overwhelming at points. Great job though!

  5. You guys were both very descriptive with time and his life throughout his career. It was explained very well, especially when mentioning that he wasn't like other rappers and actually wanted change in society for the better.

    The only things that I would have made it a little better was mentioning more of his music and not moving around as much.

  6. You both did a good job describing what tupac and his rap life was all about. You said that Tupac was not just known for his music, but known for wanting to change issues at the time of his life. That really struck me and made me realize that we need more people like him in todays world. If I were to criticize anything I would say for you to ask more questions to the audience to really engage them.

  7. The presentation was great, especially how you guys not only captured the musical side of Tupac, but also how he was involved in the equal-rights movement. Also the timeline of all the major events in Tupac's life, along with the relationship he had with Biggie was well presented.
    One constructive criticism about the presentation was that you both seemed very nervous and unsure of what you were going to talk about.

  8. I learned a lot about what Tupac wanted his music to stand for and what he overcame. You guys did a good job presenting, especially going first. Over all good job not much to criticize on

  9. I enjoyed how you included the video of Tupac that really helped show that he had a very intelligent side and cared about important things happening around him. One sugestion i have is included some of his music with lyrics or recordings.

  10. I learned a lot about Tupac's lyrics and what message he was trying to get across. You did a nice job in showing the true brilliance of him. The beginning started off slow, but then both of you really picked it up at the end. The timeline of the feud between B.I.G and Tupac was very interesting.

  11. I really liked yours. I have heard of Tupac but never really learned about who he is and his life. I really liked that you didn't talk about the conspiracy of his death because that was the only thing I ever heard about.

  12. I really enjoyed your presentation. You both talked the same, and you seemed to really know what you were talking about. I really enjoyed the video you showed when he talked about schools and how classes can change. One thing I would change would be to move around a little less during your presentation.

  13. During this presentation, I learned that Tupac wanted to represent the Young Black male stubble with his music and this is kind of how he got through to young males living in rough conditions. Also, I found it interesting that he joined the Death Row Records. Something that I felt could have improved is that there should have been more information about the music/genre in this era.

    Overall, this presentation was very good and well thought out!
