We started off asking members of the hip-hop community to name their favorite Tupac song, but in many instances it was just too difficult. Some told us that it was impossible — picking a favorite Pac song is like choosing Michael Jordan's best moment from his sports highlight reel.

Hampering the hip-hoppers' selection process was the fact that Pac's catalog is so expansive, and that he had the ability to strike so many emotional chords in his records. "Dear Mama" made you want to cry when you first heard it. "California Love" is an indispensable party record. "Definition of a Thug N---a" is three-plus minutes of Pac's most articulate and incisive street analysis.

So we rephrased the question. We instead asked some of your favorite artists to pick a song that they would put on a Tupac mixtape and explain why that cut stands out to them. Here's what 50 Cent, Missy Elliott, P. Diddy, Ja Rule, Nas and others said ...

He was a genius.

Mack 10: That was off the chain. He used that Stevie Wonder [sample]. It was just raw.

David Banner: He spoke about things that young black males thought, but didn't verbally express.

"Realest Killas"

50 Cent: I enjoy that record more than I enjoy some of my solo records 'cause I got a chance to work with him, even though I didn't physically get a chance to work with him. It was cool to actually build that record.

"Against All Odds"

Loon: This was a man who was at his last straw in dealing with a certain situation that was going on in his life. I think he addressed it in his rawest form. Just the whole vibe Pac created in the song made you feel his ang
