Product Description

Amazon.ca

An indispensable and definitive collection showcasing the passionate genius of the late rapper. The album's non-chronological 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

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Hits June 16 2004
By Pete
Format:Audio CD
This is a really good collection of 2Pac's Greatest Hits. Of the 2 cd's, DISC TWO is probably the better disc. Disc one's best songs are Keep Ya Head Up (a great song, proving he has enormous respect for females), 2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted (great collab. with snoop dogg, i aint a fan of snoop dogg at all but this is a great song), God Bless The Dead (another great song, love the music), Hit Em Up (2pac and the outlawz completely go off in this song! awesome diss on biggie, lil kim, etc, check out the last verse, 2pac cuts sick!), and the rest of the songs are tight too. Disc two pretty much every song is the best. Troublesome 96, Brenda's Got A Baby, I Ain't Mad At Cha, I Get Around, Changes (very classic song, sad song too), California Love, Picture Me Rollin', How Long Will They Mourn Me? (one of my favorites), Dear Mama (possibly the best song on the album), All About U, To Live & Die LA (classic 2pac, nothing else needed to be sed), and Heartz Of Men is a good way to finish off. Overall, this sums up 2pac's career near-perfectly. However, it is still missing some of the best 2pac songs ever, such as Part Time Mutha, and Me And My Girlfriend. Nevertheless, you MUST own this album if you call yourself a rap fan. If you don't, your opinion is garbage, fo' real.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Greatest Hits Album of All Time May 6 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Okay, whoever gave this album one star is ignorant and are close-minded to the quality of the music and lyrics 2Pac expresses in this ill CD. Look beyond the 'thug life' and get to know the good being 2Pac really was...
My favorite songs on the CD:
Disk 1 -
1. Keep Ya Head Up - This song is my 2nd favorite on the CD. The song is 2Pac's passion for women who never give up. I love this song and it really expresses 2Pac's good side.
5. Hail Mary - This song is very deep and I love it. You have to think on this one.
6. Me Against the World - I love this song... It's just me against the world baby. ^_^ Totally real. Some of us feel like everyone's against us sometimes.
9. Unconditional Love - My favorite song in the whole album!! -- both CDs. I love this song so much. It's my favorite rap song of all time. 2Pac explains how unconditional love has affected him... The song has a girl in the background sayin' "Ooooh...unconditional love...". I love it. 2Pac's lyrics in this song are tight. "...Watched mama open up her arms to hug me and I ain't worried 'bout a damn thang, with unconditional love." "My mission is to be more than just a rap musician, the elevation of today's generation!, if I could make 'em listen." "Prison ain't what we need. No longer stuck in greed. Time to plan, strategize, my family's gotta eat." "Baby, don't cry, everythang's gonn be alright. Just lay yo head on my shoulder, don't worry 'bout a thing baby girl I'm a soldier. Never treated me bad, no matter who I was. Ya still came with that unconditional love..."
11. Life Goes On - Tight song from 2Pac's 'All Eyez On Me' album. The song is about how 2Pac lost his friend... and how he himself is still livin'.
12. Hit 'Em Up - One of the most controversial songs back in the day... and still may be.

Anyone who gives this album 1 star is a probably a close minded, mis-informed idiot who likes to make ignorant generalizations about things they know NOTHING about. Either that, or they probably just some right-winged conservative goodie two shoes hypocrite who cringes at hearing a curse word in a song, but probably has used a million curse words in their life....get the f*ck outta here with that bullsh*t.
Tupac's lyrics were rude and crude?? Yea, because "Dear Mama" is a rude and crude song. As is "Keep Ya Head Up". As is "So Many Tears". And "I Aint Mad At Cha" and "Brendas Got A Baby". In case you havent figured it out yet, I am being very sarcastic.
Tupac spoke of what he knew, and many of his lyrics were about pain and struggle. Yea, he had some hardcore songs too, but that is a part of hip hop. If you dont like it, dont listen. Simple as that. But dont sit here and make irrational generalizations about an artist you probably know little about. Pac was/is one of the greatest songwriters of our time, living or dead.
I wasnt gonna post a review or anything, as anyone who's anyone knows this is a classic album, but alot of ignorant people have been giving this 1 star lately, without warrant, so I had to speak my mind. Dont listn to these idiots.....This album has almost 500 reviews, about 95% of them have given this album 5 stars, and all of them are right . Thats an overwhelming consensus: Because its nothing short of a CLASSIC, as are all of Pac's other albums. "A music from the UK" is a wanker who has no idea what he is talking about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album Feb. 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is in reply to aznxgin. If this guy's so smart why did he give this album only 1 star and not even talk about the album? He gave it 1 star because he doesn't like most rap fans. There's no reason to give the album a low score for this. If you think the album is great, then give it 5 stars. And why do you talk about other artists? What does that have to do at all with this album? You are rating 2Pac's Greatest Hits album. It makes no sense whatsoever to talk about other albums and rate it low for that when the point of your review is to talk about this specific album. And by the way, which Chopin Polonaise are you talking about? There are more than one. Next time you write a review, stick to the subject. Don't go off on tangents that have nothing to do with the album. And don't give an album a low score because you think it's a money making scheme. Of course its purpose is to make money. That's how artists and producers make their money. But why are you even talking about the greedy producers? What does that have to do with Tupac's music? I don't care at all if the reason is to make money; all I care about is that I have some really good Tupac songs to listen to. Rate the material...it's not that hard. Stick the topic. You just make yourself look stupid when you give it 1 star because you don't like most rap fans. I love this album, as well as every other Tupac album. My 5 stars will hopefully counter your 1 star, but my 5 stars are actually for a reason, whereas you didn't even give a single reason for your rating of it. Okay, that aside, this album is great. But there are some songs I wish would have been included, like Staring Through My Rearview, Ambitionz az a Ridah, and All Eyez On Me. Read more ›
