Product Description

Amazon.ca

The gruesome details surrounding Tupac's third solo offering are enough to give any music fan the willies. Released when Tupac was in jail serving time for a rape conviction and just after his recovery from being shot-up gangland-style at a recording studio, this was his most introspective piece of work to date. The heavy-hearted album opens up with a radio commentary describing the circumstances surrounding his shooting, and then plunges headfirst into Pac's infatuation with death. "So Many Tears", "Death Around the Corner" and "If I Die 2Nite" are all dark, eerily prophetic tunes that lend credence to widespread theories which suggest that Pac anticipated his impending death. The perpetually thugged-out wonder reveals a more benevolent side when it comes to gender and family issues. On "Dear Mama"--a fitting tribute to his mother recorded in the "Keep Ya Head Up" vein--Pac takes listeners into the loving recesses of his heart, while on "Can U Get Away", he echoes similar respectful sentiments to black womynkind. This is probably 'Pac's most progressive issues-oriented release before he signed to Death Row and became a full-blown thug. --Dalton Higgins

4.0 out of 5 stars Pac Kinda Slipped... Sept. 26 2005
Format:Audio CD
I didn't feel this album as much as i felt his first three (2pacalypse Now,Strictly for my N.I.G.G.A.Z and Thug Life) but he still spit some of the best lyrics on this album.I just feel that the lable made this album and that 2pac didn't have as much say in it at all.But if your are a Pac fan or just a hip-hop fan this is a must have by a long shot.Best Song "Dear Mama"

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful CD, buy it! March 18 2005
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a beautiful piece of work. Tupac intellectually captured emotions as shown in "Dear Mama" and "So Many Tears"
GET IT!
For those few people disrespecting 2pac and rapping,you should stop basing all your opinions on what your pissy little friends tell you about rap. And to the idiot who said he could make a rap album, i'd f**king like to see you try, cuz i havent seen you on my tv screen yet. rap is in rock music too. And if you hate rap so much, why the hell would you listen to 2pac, find the name of his album on this site and badmouth it?

3.0 out of 5 stars Havent heard it yet so i gave it a mediocre rating Sept. 21 2004
By MTLiens
Format:Audio CD
I havent heard this album yet. I just want to respond to all the trash that these rocker guys were talking about 2pac. I don't only like rap. I can listen to anything. But you guys sound so arrogant and stupid. You havent heard all of 2pacs stuff. Have you read his poems? Probably not. You're gonna judge the guy's knowledge by his rap music? He went to college and stuff. I'm pretty sure he knew a lot more than you. Please dont be little arrogant prejudiced jerks about this stuff. Us rap listeners can easily claim that you rockers sound retarded because all you do is scream. BUT WE DONT. WE KNOW THAT YOU HAVE TO KNOW SOMETHING TO TALK TRASH. Go on and maridnade on that. P.S. OUTKAST IS THE BEST YEEEUH!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars bestalbum by best rapper ever July 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is by far the best 2pac album. Every track is well produced with heavy meaningful lyrics. 2Pac expresses pain and depression so well that it grabs the listener- "I smoke a blunt to take the pain out and if I wasn't high I'd probably try to blow my brains out." Damn... that's some intense stuff. Just to give props where they're due, my favorite song is "It Ain't Easy." I love the beat with the high keyboard melody and the lyrics are great.

5.0 out of 5 stars The people below are stupid idiots July 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
There are two reviews below this one that contain mindless, idiotic insults directed at 2Pac. This is directed at them. It never ceases to amaze me how stupid some kids (yes, I said KIDS) really are. Unfortunately, youth tend to throw up boundaries among themselves based upon personal tastes (music, clothes, etc.) and then call each other inferior based upon them, and the people below are examples of such stupid kids. Clearly, said kids have serious personal problems and need a way to vent their anger, because it is the only explanation for their behavior. Making fun of people doesn't do anything except make you look stupid. And neither does whining about what's really "music" and what's not.
Using exaggerated, foolish stereotypes of "ebonics" usage, they claim all rap fans are stupid posers trying to be cool, and that they're happy 2Pac has died. And yet they expect us to believe they're the ones who are smart and mature, and that all rap fans are dumb. Does anybody who really is mature (and by that, I do NOT mean some zit-faced high school kid) see the contradiction in that logic? Then, they proclaim that rock and metal are the only types of music that involve talent, and that rap is just "talking fast". Anybody who has listened to hip-hop seriously knows just how much talent it really takes to rap, and 2Pac is one of the finest rappers that ever lived. What's even more idiotic is that one of the stupid kids below (the dumber of the two) tried to claim he's read 2Pac's lyrics, when he obviously hasn't. If somebody ever played "So Many Tears" or "Dear Mama" and asked him to call that "talking fast", he would have nothing to say. He'd just stand there looking like the foolish, naive child he is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album July 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
1 - Intro: This is just a drum beat over several newscasters talking about what happened to Tupac so I usually skip over it.
2 - If I Die 2nite: My favorite song on the album, the rhymes really flow, the beat doesn't seem forced, and the even though the chorus is sort of minimalistic, it sounds really good. My only complaint is when 2pac says at the end kill kill kill, murda murda murda. This "growl" at the end doesn't keep the rest of the tone of the song. - 9/10
3 - Me Against the World: A very competent song, the beat is ok but its nothing special. The rhymes flow like always, and the chorus is ok. It's basically talking about how Tupac is against the world. It's not bad, but it's not great. - 7/10
4 - So Many Tears: Excellent song almost on the level of If I Die Tonight. Talking about whether Tupac would get into heaven and how he's so tired of "the game". I love the beat and the harmonica in the chorus. Because Ja Rule can't make any good beats on his own, the beat from this song was jacked by him, Nas, and Ashanti in the Pledge Remix. I don't know if it's in the original but it really makes me mad that they took an anti - gangsta beat and made it into a gangsta song. Pac was real, you are not Mr. Rule! - 8.5/10
5 - Temptations - This is a good song talking about how Pac is a player and he can't really settle down ever. Excellent chorus saying, "I know you've been searching for someone...". For some reason though, I find my self skipping over this song. I don't know why. - 7/10
6 - Young N***AZ - This a cool track with an instresting beat about a topic I haven't really heard any other rapper talk about before. I like the guys voice in the chorus. - 8/10
7 - Heavy in the Game - Ugh... one of the few bad songs. I hate the womans voice in the beginning.
