I've listened to both extensively and grew up in the era when they were alive.
Just from my point of view , Pac was the last political voice in hip hop. No one since his death has even come close to his brash attack of the establishment. He was a hero of mine who was multi talented and rapping just happened to be one of his more visible attributes. Pac was a great actor and poet. His poetry book "a rose that grew from concrete" is an incredible work.
Pac's lyrical skills wernt his strong point but his message in most songs was heavier than mile long meteorite . Pac was the complete package with an almost "Christ" like presence even until this day.
Biggie is one of the most dope MC's to ever bless the mic. A Wordsworth , a wordsmith and a lyrical assassin. He represented the east coast very strong and ushered in the era of great NYC MC's such as Nas, Jay Z and Mobb Deep.
IMO its kind of comparing Apples to Oranges even though the two career paths of both men are so intertwined twoards the end of both of their lives
