Listening to this version of PAC's Life was sickening. I have the orignal bootleg version of it using Prince's "Pop Life" and it was rugged and raw just like it was.
It's almost becoming more detrimental to PAC's legacy to keep letting other artist collaborate on these tracks instead of just using the regular unreleased versions with PAC solely on it on w/him and the Outlawz the way it was intended to be.
I just hope Ms Shakur and the rest of the Amaru staff would just realize that when it's not broke, stop looking for a crack. All this does is just make me pull out the old Makavelli boots and reminisce just how vicious PAC was as an artist and as a young black male.
Your "Soldier Story" will live on.
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.
Why not just leave all his tracks unmastered and raw, keep the original artists on the tracks, but not artists from 2006...because it would not sell to the majority of young listeners. I am in my mid 20s, and a Pac listener for over 10 years, if you understand the Marketing concepts of the music industy, the goal is to target the highly marketable demographic of the current period. My cohort (20s-30s) is of the working professional class, whom does not spend a lot of time watching all of this BS media on BET and MTV, so we do not get caught in th hype, which the marketers know. So instead of dropping this album for the listeners of Pac's generation, they drop is for the current demographic.
Anyone of my generation who listeted to Pac will not support any of the last "chop suey" albums, we understand real rap music, not the "product music" played on the airwaves today.
Here is a question for you all to ponder...Why is that when the surviving members of The Beatles released new unheard material about 10 years ago, they did not need to feature any new rock n'roll artists? Its because they were classic, and the music would sell no matter what.
Pac is classic too, forever a timeless artist. No disrespect to Afeni or the label, but if it ain't broke, then don't try to fix it.
The illegitimacy of the album is this: the inconsistent rappers, the "recycled" material of his voice, and the re-work of 2pac's ghetto love songs.
I hate to be the devil's advocate; however, I agree overall with most of the Pac's life comments. As a personal thought, because it is Pac's last album (with a grain of salt), I support it. I will go to the store, buy it for the sake of supporting the TASF of the Arts. I will listen to it just so I can hear this great man's message of truth and ambition...
In the end, I rate this album a "2" for the production of the music, but NOT for the man behind the music, which is 2pac.
"Stay up Pac, your fans are still down for yah."
