Tupac, "Brenda's Got a Baby"

Oh, how times have changed. While teens today are gaining fame for being 16 and pregnant, Tupac was making music 20 years ago trying to warn youngsters off that path. This 1991 single told the cautionary tale of a runaway teenage mom who was a victim of neglect and physical and sexual abuse, only to meet her death in the streets as a prostitute.
