Tupac, "So Many Tears"

The folksy, wailing harmonica in "So Many Tears" (pulled from Stevie Wonder's "That Girl") is the instrumental epitome of 'Pac's ability to make "thug life" a universal experience. For a lyrical example, there's this line: "Disillusioned lately, I've been really wanting babies, so I can see a part me that wasn't always shady."
