Synopsis

Amazon.com
An indispensable and definitive collection showcasing the passionate genius of the late rapper. The album's nonchronological sequence highlights the contradictory impulses that made Tupac's music so commanding; the 21 well-loved "hits," some slightly reedited for legal reasons, are accompanied by four previously unheard songs. Of the new material, the raw-sounding "God Bless the Dead" has been the subject of the most speculation, owing to its subject matter: a eulogizing of the late Notorious B.I.G.--a mysterious feat, since Tupac was killed six months before Biggie. And, making its first proper appearance on a Tupac album, the B-side "Hit 'Em Up" stands as the most intense outburst of pure venomous rage ever captured on tape. Whether he's waxing political, philosophical, or just plain paranoid, Tupac's empathetic, charismatic style remains unmatched. --Charley Gothic

CD Reviews

2PAC SHAKUR, THE MAN, THE RAPPER, THE GOD!
AIR'N JOHNSON | SPRINGFIELD,OHIO | 01/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"THIS ALBUM IS THE ILLEST! TUPAC WAS AND STILL IS THE GREATEST RAPPER OF ALL TIME, NO ONE WILL EVER COMPARE TO HIM. THIS IS A COMBINATION OF VARIOUS SONGS FROM THE LATE TUPAC SHAKUR. YOU GET A LITTLE OF ALL OF HIS ALBUMS IN ONE GREAT PACKAGE. I THINK THAT THERE SHOULD BE ANOTHER GREATEST HITS FROM TUPAC, A VOLUME 2 OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT,BUT NEVER THE LESS THIS CD IS ILL. ALL TUPAC FANS SHOULD GO GET IT.THESE ARE SOME OF THE ILLEST SONGS EVER RELEASED INCLUDING THE PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED "TROUBLESOME" AND "GOD BLESS THE DEAD". TUPAC DIED FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 13,1995, SIX MONTHS BEFORE THE NOTORIOUS ONE DIED IN MARCH. SO IT IS PRETTY MYSTERIOUS THAT TUPAC WROTE A SONG ABOUT BIG'S DEATH. IN MAKAVELI'S OWN WORDS"WHEN YOU DIE, BE A MAN AND PICK THE WAY YOU LEAVE." I THINK HE PREDICTED HIS DEATH AND ACCEPTED IT. R.I.P. TUPAC SHAKUR."
Tupac always did hit em up

"This was a GREAT CD, the best rap CD ever, I know what a lot of you are probably thinking, rap is crap, well, not this one, you can be the biggest rap hater ever, and still love this CD. Damn, it's a shame though, the state rap is in today, ever since Biggie and Tupac died, all we got is that fake ass Puffy, oh well, Life Goes on (lol)Best song on the album are: Hit em up, Dear Mama, 2 of americas most wanted, Changes, Hail Mary, All about U, Life Goes On, How Long Will They Mourn Me?, and Troublesome"
Probably the best rap CD of all time

"Tupac Shakur was probably one of the best rappers ever to bealive, and the best of his music is showcased in this great 2 CDalbum. It's too hard to comment on every song, but I can easily say that this is the best piece of music that I have ever heard. I will definately buy it! This double CD is a MUST for all rap lovers, and probably even most music lovers general."
