Would Tupac's poems be considered poetry?

Absolutely. That's a silly question. You're gonna feel stupid

for asking it, and you'll see why: The audience of a work of art it

not who decides whether or not it's art. It's the artist that

decides if they have made art. If a man writes something and calls

it a poem, then it's a poem. If a man paints a picture and calls it

a poem, then it's a poem. (To most people this would be known as

"visual poetry") If a person doesn't like a work of art, they might

say "that's not art", but they'd be dead wrong. Tupac's poems are

definitely poetry, regardless of whether or not some stuffy teacher

or parent doesn't like them. Now, don't you feel stupid?
