Slick, groove-based hip-hop from Tupac Shakur, his half-brother MoPreme, and a handpicked posse that includes Syke, Macadoshis, and the Rated R, along with guest appearances from Nate Dogg and Y.N.V. The huge "Thug Life" tattoo on Tupac's chest shows exactly how committed Shakur was to this long-term project. The first batch of songs Thug Life submitted to Interscope Records was allegedly rejected as being too hardcore for release; the material that was ultimately approved for release as Vol. 1 is very accessible musically and foreshadows the "morbid party" approach Shakur later perfected on All Eyez on Me. "Pour Out a Little Liquor" and "Bury Me a G" are classic 2Pac tracks, and this project shows a remarkable consistency of quality, no matter who's got control of the mic. --Greg Turkington

"Please be aware before you plop your money down for this CD that there are absolutely no bad songs on it. Most rap albums have tons of filler, but this CD only has 10 songs and all of them are awesome. Most fans of rap / hip-hop music will be sorely disappointed to find no crummy songs here. If you're looking for weak cuts, you'll have to find something else. If you want an absolute classic with all good songs and beats & verses that are some of the best of 2Pac's career, then this is a must have album that you will cherish until they catch this motherscratcher on the run in Central America."
