Tupac Shakur: Changes Meaning

Song Released: 1998

Changes Lyrics

Come on come on
I see no changes wake up in the morning and I ask myself
is life worth living should I blast myself?
I'm tired of bein' poor & even worse I'm black
my stomach hurts so I'm lookin' for a purse to snatch
Cops give a damn...

    Yo, Just The Chorus is the same and beat is the same from that song. SHUT THE F*** UP YOU LITTLE PRICK.
    Just kidding, but really that's just the way it is.

    His Remake of The Way It Is Song is great, It's a great remix none the less with most of the lyrics taken from "If Heaven Had a Ghetto" Music(rap) formerly was much better when they "sampled" from rock and r&b songs popular at the time.

    This song is about the changes that need to be made both by society in general, but offers that those in the black community need to change theirselves in order to rid of steryotypes and racism. He offers no excuses for their own actions. Also, this song is not completely original, it is derived, beat meaning and some lyrics, from the classic "the way it is" by Bruce Hornsby, seen here:


    Just like most raps, it was still copied from actually better music.

    This song is about trying to change his life, he's saying that its hard to grow up poor and black, and commenting on the fact that the police don't seem to particularly care one way or another what happens within the black community. It also mentions how he was considering suicide as a viable option to the hell hole that his life had become, surrounded by drugs, and gangs.
