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

I think tupac's C.D. is the best C.D. iv'e ever heard. But he could leave some swear words out.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2pac's best cd Nov. 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
It is worth buying this cd instead of studio albums if you are a casual Pac fan. I'm not gonna get into this whole 'infamousdogg is an idiot' thing because everybody has the right to express their opinion and let's face it he made some good points (and some bad ones!).however, cdrw622, below me, is an idiot. He called Tupac illiterate then misspelled clown.Looking at his other reviews, I'm glad I have a good point to make when I say he is a total idiot. But, besisdes that slight interruption, i'm just going to straight up review this cd, and my first thought is buy it if you like rap music!!!
1.Keep ya head up-One of 2pac's best songs.Great, thought provoking lyrics and a great positive vibe. The beat is a little too loud though. 9/10
2.2 of amerikaz most wanted-I love this song, but,(and everyone's going to think i'm stupid), I can't understand half of what Pac says. 8/10
3.Temptations- Nice song to relax and unwind to.Pretty good.7/10
4.God bless the dead-People say this song proves he's alive. Nope. He was talking about somebody else. You'll notice the other guy is the only one who mentions Biggie's name.7/10
5.Hail Mary-I'm the only person I know who doesn't like this song.5/10
6.Me against the world-Average, with a great message at the end-6/10
7.How do u want it-Great beat, catchy hook.8/10
8.So many tears-Unusually cool. Has about 6 short verses, but very meaningful. 8/10
9.Unconditional love-Previously unreleased, sounds like life goes on but not as good.7/10
10.Trapped-Great song about hood life.-8/10
11.Life's goes on-one of my favorites. Great beat, good lyrics.9/10
12.Hit em up-Bad boy diss song. Not really very good.6/10
Disc 2
1.Troublesome 96-Great hardcore Makaveli.8/10

I've listened to a lot of music, mostly black metal and hiphop, and i have got to say, that nothing comes close to this.
You might feel a certain alleigance for some other rappers, like nas, biggie, snoop etc.
I guarantee that after hearing this record, those alleigances will change, almost every track is a piece of hiphop genius, from "dear mama," to the frankly shocking "hit-em-up."
Let me just say that hit em up is undoubtedly the greatest outpouring of pure hate and rage i have ever heard, ever - how death row had the nerve to relase this i dont know.
Along with the superbly aggressive tracks, and they are fantastic, there are the more thoughtful, introspective, songs where pac really shines - "keep ya head up," "unconditional love," "dear mama," life goes on," "changes," and plenty others, just listen, ignore the swearing (don't worry it's not just for the sake of it), and just listen to the message.
This is an utterly essential buy wether you're a priest or a murderer, this compilation will change you're life if you listen to it right.
2Pac is up there in that true echelon of generation changing artists, and with a few omissions, this is the real deal, ignore every other hiphop record ever released.

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Cd starts out with two great songs: Keep Ya Head Up and Two of Amerikaz Most Wanted. Keep Ya Head Up is about the troubles that our women suffer today. A slower sad song. Followed by Tupac and Snoop Dogg kicking a$$ in a song with the best beat and best lyrics. The next few songs aren't the greatest, but good beats and good lyrics. A few point outs for the rest of Disc One: Unconditional Love: A very, very good sad song about hard times and loved ones. Trapped: About livin a thug life. Life Goes On: Helping to understand death and giving dedication to their friend Kato. Hit 'Em Up: A powerful, vulgar rap portraying the hate against Biggie Smallz and Junior M.A.F.I.A. Disc Two: Troublesome is another powerful, fast song about living a hard life in the ghetto. Good Beat. Brenda's Got a Baby is a realistic portrayal of teen pregnecies and how life goes wrong for some. I Ain't Mad at ya is not a great song, but stands it's ground. Changes is one of Tupacs greatest. It's fast beat and poetically written lyrics combine to make a moving song about changing society and treating humans right. California love talks about the hustling scene in Cali. Picture Me Rollin, an upbeat boastful fun song about money, cars, and High Rollin. How Long Will They Mourn Me is a slower dedication by Thug life to Kato. Dear Mama is a song for Tupacs struggled stressed mother that did her best to raise Tupac. It's all About U is about women and sex, fast and fun. To Live and Die in L.A. is a slower song talking about the scene in South Cali. A compilation of 2Pacs best songs.

1.0 out of 5 stars ABOSLUTELY TERRIBLE April 24 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"I ain't a killa but don't push me
(...)
What a charming man tupac was!
Ok, the alubm was awful, boring, un-imaginative, tedious 'beats', and the same for the lyrics.
tupac was not a musicain, he never broke into actuall singing in the album, and he can not play an instrument, yet some people regard him as a musician.
he was hailed as a poet, for his so-called deep lyrics. which are in fact offensive, and crude. Serioulsy though guys, if you want some poetry, try ben jonson, robert browning, shakespeare not this clown tupac.
how is this album classed as music, have out standards, just hit rock-bottom?
tupac was a self confessed thug, but people bought his albums, what next a serial killer releasing an album
tupacs songs where just one big ego trip for him
these are his greatest hits i dread to think about his 'not so good ones'
