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

Six years after 2Pac's death, his constant release of unreleased music is still growing. Another example of this is his release of "Better Dayz". After hearing the single "Thugz Mansion" being played on the radio (fianlly radio giving him airplay), I figured that I would pick up his album. After listening to both albums all the way through, I would consider this his fourth best CD ever. The beats so much better than "Until The End Of Time" and the songs on the albums have even greater messages. I'm going to break down the best tracks.
Disc 1 starts off with an intro and then starts off with "Still Ballin" featuring Trick Daddy. This is a great song and the beat is crunk. "When We Ride On Our Enemies" is a diss to numerous people such as The Fugees, Da Brat. "F--- Em All" is a diss to Biggie Smalls featuring The Outlawz in which the beat is banging. "Never B Peace" is all about how the streets will never be peaceful because there's always two sides clashing which results to innocent dying. "Mama's Just A Little Girl" is probably the best song on Disc 1. This song is an absolute classic in which 2Pac displays the hardship of a mother prematurely having at baby at an early age. "Street Fame" is another good song over a piano loop beat attacking his enemies.
On Disc 2, the album starts off with the great track "My Block". 2Pac gives shout outs to all his blocks in which he was raised and his time growing up. The first single, "Thugz Mansion" is a good track in which 2Pac hopes that there be a thug mansion when he dies. "Never Call U B---- Again" is a good slow tempo track featuring Tyreese which talks about ho he will treat his lady with more respect. "Better Dayz" is the best track on Disc 2 and probably the best track on both albums.

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.

It won't go down in history as the next "All Eyez On Me", but 2Pac's latest posthumous gem is a classic in my opinion....with a few flaws. For instance, the album (two disc) is bogged down by one too many cameos (don't the Outlawz have dayjobs or something?) and some misplaced collabos (we know there's no way in hell Pac would ever hook up with Nas). Nevertheless, Pac's balance between his hardcore and soulful lyrics, fused with bangin', addictive (yet slightly glossy) beats, and sprinkled with clues of his imminent return makes this package required listening for even the casual Pac fanatic. Suge Knight actually did some justice to the late, great veteran, and hip-hop purists will be satisfied with the inclusion of some G-Funk production.
Word of advice: Don't even touch the edited version; they completely screwed that up

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Work From The GOAT. Just TIMELESS. May 13 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Fantastic album from the greatest MC ever. From start to finish it's a solid effort. And Amaru Records did a great job on this one. My only and ONLY beef with it, is they remixed the track with BCC. That original track was already an underground classic! And should have NEVER been touched. But.. they're still building his discography. None better. Period. GRAB THIS ALBUM!!
NOW!!!!!
2pac is timeless. Dude is STILL relevant with his work till this day. Yet another reason why the world will never forget him.
