Tupac Shakur - Keep Ya Head Up
-------------Even one of the most hardened, rough rappers of the nineties still had a soft side when it came to encouraging women to overcome struggle and hold on to hope. "Keep Ya Head Up" is Tupac's way of opening his heart up to all mothers, sisters, and daughters, swaying with gratitude and with a hint of apology for all the men who have given them hard times. This song marked the late Shakur as a conscious and influential rapper of his time, and was covered by Nas at the MTV Rap Memorial in 2005. Get "Keep Ya Head Up" from Shakur's 1993 album, Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z.
