Is A-Wax a legend by hip hop standards, absolutely not. You are completely right there.

Is he a legendary musician to me as a fan of music, absolutely because the length and quality consistency of his catalogue. If people asked me who are the top Bay rappers of all time, A-Wax is definitely getting mentioned in the top 5. The key words are TO ME.

2Pac a legend...BIG a legend...Eazy-E a legend...they changed not only music, but changed the world. Im a big A-Wax fan, but calling him a legend is retarded. A legend is a guy known outside of the industry. I wouldn't even call Spice 1 a legend, even though I have all his music. Legends are rare. If you have an impact on your music genre and on people, you can be considered a legend. Mac Dre is close, but I would call him a local legend. E-40 a legend...movie stars dancing to his music in Monaco...

If pac didnt get all that mainstream attention and have a huge media surrounding his death he wouldnt be legend status. Same goes for biggie. There are rappers that are far better than pac and biggie and because they arent mainstream they dont get the shine. This goes to show you're just conditioned to think how the media wants you to think. You got people who get super sensitive if you say anything about 2pac like he is some kinda God lol.

That’s “Natural Born Hustlaz” off of the Junior High 2 the Penn mixtape. There’s another version floating around with Cyssero instead of A-Wax. Not sure which one is the og?

Nah, that's not it. It was Akon's song "Locked Up" with A-Wax on the track. Probably 10 years old or so.
Thank you though
