I give 'All Eyez on Me' a 5 out of 5 for a number of reasons. 'All Eyez on Me' is one of Rap's finest CD's ever made, it sold very, very well and it is by Rap's finest rapper EVER.
Known to be his 2nd Deathrow record album, this was Hip-Hop's first double disc album. 2pac was raised in the hard life where nothing really worked out for him. He had no father, he moved from place to place making no childhood friends and his life was a shack. 'All Eyez on Me' pretty much sums up 2pac's life.
On 'All Eyez on Me', 2pac released 7 songs from this album. Disc 1 features 6 out of the 7 released songs. Disc 1 starts off with 'Ambitionz az a Ridah', talking about the fast lane. On disc 1, you'll find some of his westside rhymes like "All Bout U", "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted", "California Love" and "Heartz of Men". There are some songs that is powerful enough to make you cry like "Life Goes On" and "I Ain't Mad at Cha". However 2pac does lack on one song singing about how good sex is on "What's Ya # Number". The production for both CD's is excellent and features some pretty good producers like Johnny J, Daz Dillinger and one of Rap's most important producers, Dr. Dre. "Only God can Judge Me" pretty much sums up his death and is by far the best song on CD1.
Disc 2 is rather different from the first disc. Some songs are heavier, mellower and angrier. "Shorty Wanna Be a Thug" explains the meaning of being a gangster whereas "Can't C Me" shows 2pac's west side once again. A very excellent track indeed. "Picture Me Rollin", 2pac's last single released, is best played in the cars rolling by, "Rather Be Ya N.I.G.G.A" is the best song on disc 2 and has a very catchy tune.
To sum everything up, 'All Eyez on Me' will always be one of Rap's finest CD's ever made. 2pac wasn't just a person or a rapper. He was a teacher and I thank him for every single message he passed to the world. And if you listen to trash like Ludacris or Nelly, change your taste in Rap.
