I just wanted to share this passage from 2 Pac’s book of poems The Rose That Grew From Concrete (1999) It’s called Just a Breath of Freedom (4 Nelson Mandela)

Held captive 4 your politics
They wanted 2 break your soul
They ordered the extermination
of all minds they couldn’t control
4 u the fate was far worse
than just a brutal homicide
They caged u like an animal
and watched u slowly die inside
As u Breathe your first air of freedom
on the day u become a free man
Raise your Regal Brow in Pride
4 now you R in God’s Hands
The life of many were given
so that the day would one day come
That the devils in Power at Pretoria
would pay for the evil crimes they’ve done
