Quick reply, but I'd like to say that save for a few spots every now and then, Biggie was largely apolitical at the very most. I feel like Bad Boy has pretty much always been a pop label, and most of Biggies material is without irony - about the usual soulless trappings that make most modern hip hop so meaningless. I feel like that subject matter is even a little racist and detrimental towards the black community as a whole with the caraciture like gangster attitudes and lifestyles portrayed within. Modern rap is infinitely worse too.

I feel like the 90's definitely hit some peaks and special times that just haven't been really been often matched since. All that said, I'm also a MASSIVE 2Pac fan and will gladly back it up...
