Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

2Pac's been dead for more than six years, and in that time his estate has released a dizzying array of questionable posthumous material--with much more to come in 2003, by the way (the liner notes list documentary soundtracks, another unreleased double album, DVDs, etc.). On the first disc's "Intro," an unnamed street reporter wonders, "Where are these songs coming from?" After repeated listens, your best guess would be from his unfinished studio outtakes. Nevertheless, these tracks were apparently recorded during his prolific, vexed Makaveli stage. "When We Ride on Our Enemies" demonstrates much vitriol, as Pac's verses are littered with fightin' words for rappers like Mobb Deep and Da Brat. Likewise, "F*** 'Em All" hurls threats at the late Notorious B.I.G., reminding fans of the time when media-induced East Coast-West Coast feuds were way out of control. The ghetto Elvis's tales of slum grandeur reach their zenith when he serves up his explicit boasts to women on "Fair Xchange." Gripping.

It's too bad the first disc's last track, an acoustic version of "Thugz Mansion," undermines much of the credibility of this project. When Pac's alleged enemy Nas's vocals are mixed in to appear like he's sitting next to Pac by a fireplace all warm and toasty, sharing rhymes, you immediately smell the influence of executive producer Suge Knight. The second disc is just as dodgy, but might resonate more with new fans simply wanting to hear good beats and rhymes. "Never Call U B**** Again" is a tidy love song that R&B crooner Tyrese complements well, while the title track featuring Ronald "Mr. Biggs" Isley provides a necessary escape from much of Pac's brooding imagery. In the end, the quandary of this double disc has nothing to with Pac but with producer Johnny "J"'s middling G-funk-lite beats and Suge Knight's involvement. This one's for collectors and curious onlookers. --Dalton Higgins

5.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Day 2Pac At His Best July 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
I say modern day because he has alot of guest rappers and producers that are popular today. As far as guest features, they include Nas, Anthony Hamilton, Trick Daddy, T.I., Mya, and of course The Outlawz. The biggest producer on this album is probably Jazze Pha. Here's the listings of my favorite songs:
"When We Ride On Our Enemies"- This song mainly goes at Mobb Deep, Da Brat, and The Fugees. Amazing beat and hard, brutal lyrics by Pac. Two verses of greatness.
"My Block"- An acoustic classic from 2Pac. Four verses with great storytelling.
"Thugz Mansion"(Acoustic)- Everyone complains about Nas being on this track(they were beefing before he died), but The Outlawz said in an interview that Pac squashed the beef before his death. Great song.
"Thugz Mansion"- This is the second version of the song. Tight three verses from Pac and an excellant chorus by Anthony Hamilton.
"Fame"- A catchy, classic chorus. The only con of this song is that I think The Outlawz shouldn't have been on this particular song.
"Ghetto Star"- I like the beat and the verses. The guest rapper(Nutso) is a pretty good rapper.
"Mama's Just A Little Girl"- Sounds like a part 2 of Brenda's Got A Baby. It's one of the best songs on the album in my opinion.
"Catchin Feelings"- A cool, fast-paced, song featuring The Outlawz.
"Changed Man"- The only party song I really like on the album. T.I. guest raps.
"Late Night"- Like the guy says at the beginning, it's a smooth song to smoke to. Nice beat.
"They Don't Give A F*ck About Us"- A very powerful hook, with tight verses.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tupac's Albums Have Definitely Seen Better Dayz. March 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
Yet another attempt to cash in on his unreleased material, Tupac Shakur's estate should definitely have made sure that what they were releasing was credible for at least 50% of the project. As bad as that may sound, 'Better Dayz' is not an entire wasted effort as the album does have some highlights.
The 2 disc set is pretty even when it comes to the share of the album's best tracks. 'Still Ballin', 'Street Fame', the playful 'Late Night' and the acoustic version of 'Thugz Mansion' do not disappoint, but being listed in various places, it doesn't help disc 1's level of consistency. Disc 2 however does include my favourites such as the title track, the slow but meaningful 'Fame' and 'There U Go', which is perhaps the nicest sounding song on the album - not forgetting the peaceful 'Who Do You Believe In' featuring late Outlawz member Kadafi.
Unfortunately, as a whole, the album failed to really satisfy as most songs are remixed or re-edited for commercial release and features rappers and singers (Nas and Mya most obviously) who Tupac would never have worked with in life. Its unfortunate as 'Better Dayz' is strong lyrically but fails greatly when it comes to the beats behind them.
A worthy Tupac album, but not the most fulfilling - cop it anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Dayz March 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
There is really no point in argueing if 2Pac is alive or dead. Yes, he did consequentively release albums after he was dead. So what??? He may have pre-recorded million of songs, Digital Underground said, "Pac recorded enough to release an new album every year after he is dead." Back to the album, he has hardcore gangsta style and it seems like he is still hates P. Diddy in Track 5. (That may show this album is pre-recorded) "We Ballin" is a banger, has great beat and 2Pac spits the Hit em up style lyric over it. Thugz Mansion is a great song with 2Pac talking about life after death and how peaceful it is even for the thugz. One problem about this album is that people who 2Pac would never work with appeared on the album, now that brings down the album. 2Pac's lyric is solid and at a level where the guest appearance would only bring down album unless they are at the same level. Production is great. Eventhough they did take 2Pac's stuff on it, it is much better than the Nu Mixx. Only guess appearance that diserved to be on the album and talk about how they knew 2Pac is the Outlawz. Nas, Jazzy Phe, Mya, Tyrese shouldn't have been on the album. Especially, 2Pac hated Nas. Even after that factor, theres no skip song on this song. Some songs might have flaws, because the guess appearances and remix beats, but 5 stars for Respect of 2Pac and his thugged out rhymes on this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Dayz complements Pac's excellence March 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
Tupac Shakur is one of the most influential rap artists of all time. He is also one of the few music artists that have transcended his genre. Even after his untimely death in 1996, Tupac Shakur has released more albums now than he ever did alive. The greatest thing about Shakur's music is that it is eternally relevant unlike a good portion of music, espicially rap, that fades into obscurity. Tupac didn't rap about passing fads; he rapped about issues that would forever be inextricable with mankind.
Released closely near his movie and soundtrack, Tupac Resurrection, I will tell you upfront that this CD eclipses the Resurrection soundtrack. Not only is it longer, but it is more of Tupac's style. The album begins with an amazing introduction where a reporter is on the scene of Better Dayz's release night. In the background, a crowd is chanting for the record, creating a "pumped up" feeling that you may experience before going into a sport game. After the introduction, it merges into the first track, "Still Ballin." Still Ballin is the second part of the "Straight (or Str8) Ballin" track (you can find this on the Resurrection CD). Still Ballin is an excellent track with an amazing beat and quality rapping. It's one of the album's best tracks, fast paced and intense.
The next track, a change of pace, is a slower but more hostile track. "When We Ride On Our Enemies" is a diss to "Da Brat," "Mobb Deep" and "The Fugees." The Fugees feud began when the Fugees evidently dissed Tupac, causing him to retaliate. Furthermore, The Fugees were continually calling gangsta rap too "heavy." Tupac just derails Mobb Deep, and even though it is belligerent, it is a great song with excellent quality.
