Tupac Shakur, the hip-hop legend also known by his stage name 2Pac, was no stranger to beefing with other rappers. Though he was originally born in East Harlem, he became the head representative of the West Coast during the monumental East Coast-West Coast hip hop rivalry of the 1990s. So it may come as little surprise that the California rapper left some very unflattering words for a score of high-profile names in the hip-hop world before his 1996 death in Las Vegas.
