It's hard to believe that its been more then ten years now since Tupac Shakur died. I have been a fan of his music since "2Pacalypse Now", whether it be classic Pac material, post-death material, remixes or rare unreleased music - I have always wanted to hear it. Watching movies like "Resurrection" gave me some more insight into what the man was really like and where he came from. Pac's music has touched million's of people worldwide, and will continue you do so for a long time to come.
Tupac Amaru Shakur - (June 16th 1971 - September 13th 1996) R.I.P.
"Pac's Life" (2006) is the sixth post-death studio album and has numerous guest appearances from Krayzie Bone, Ashanti, T.I., Hussein Fatal, Papoose, Carl Thomas, Keyshia Cole, A3, Jay Rock, Young Buck, Chamillionaire, Nipsy Hussle, Young Dre, Lil Scrappy, Nutso, Yaki Kadafi (R.I.P.), Stormy, Ludacris, Keon Bryce, Big Syke, E.D.I., Young Noble, Snoop Dogg, Chris Starr, Gravy. Having heard some of the original unreleased material, which was used for this album, I can agree with the reviewer who would of liked to have seen it be released as is. A good example of that would be the unreleased original cut "Play Your Cards Right" which has Pac and KC & Jojo delivering a very memorable track. Another misstep is having the "Dear Mama" (Bonus Remix) appear on only the UK version of this release. Anthony Hamiliton appears on this exceptional remix, of one of the all time great 2pac cuts. "Soon As I Get Home" is the most authentic, unaltered Pac track on the new album. The addition of singer Keon Bryce and Ludacris on the male version of "Play Your Cards Right" works well, Ashanti and T.I.'s inclusion on "Pac's Life" is not bad either. I find some of the production, beats and guest appearances on other tracks to be lackluster or not fitting. I don't feel like "Pac's Life" measures up to do some of the other post-death album's, all the same I can understand the material being more and more limited.
