Product Description

Amazon.ca

26 cuts of "gangsta rap" that only increase in doom when you realize the guy talking it didn't live to laugh about it. Perhaps he now knows the answer to his question, "I Wonder If Heaven Got a Ghetto," which shows up here twice. Shakur, like most hard rappers, liked to sound tough, kicking it with song titles unprintable in a family newspaper. But, underneath the braggadocio, there was fear. "Only Fear of Death," "Nothing to Lose," and "I'm Losin' It" tell a far different story than "Fake Ass Bitches." His artistry could never, however, catch up to the sad fate of his life. --Rob O'Connor

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead or Alive : Tupac Continues His Legacy... March 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
These are 26 cut recordings from Tupac's earlier days taken from the years of 91' through to 94'. A long listen, but at the end you end up realising what a great loss of talent the world of hip hop suffered when the thug rapper was tragically gunned down back in 1996.
Although these are songs that didn't make it to his earlier albums, this did not doubt my opinions of their quality - it was good material, although not consistent enough. This is more of a black and white album with no shades of gray, the good songs are great, the bad songs are terrible. 'R U Still Down?' does have its hot spots with tracks such as the unforgettable 'Do For Love', the religious 'I Wonder If Heaven Gotta Ghetto' and the haunting and very mysterious 'Only Fear Of Death'. Lyrically, at this stage of his life especially, Tupac's views are more political and intellectual for the majority of the album since he had not quite reached his Death Row days just yet.
The two disc set, in a way, tells a story of a man who was on the verge of something here, yet never got the time to fulfil it as you can tell some verses are incomplete and hesitant. Do not think this lessens the albums quality, as about 80% of it is worth while. Although one of my favourite Tupac albums, 'R U Still Down?' in short is a sad and depressing story of a man who knew his end was to come far too soon.

3.0 out of 5 stars R U STILL DOWN? Review Aug. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
Following the untimely and tragic death of musical genius and rap icon, Tupac Shakur, his mother, Afeni, saw to it that she and his estate attained the rights to his musical legacy including some of the lost and forgotten outtakes from his early albums like "Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z." and "Thug Life". Such album leftovers seem to be the highlight of this beefed-up but dated double album.
Most of the tracks on this album were clearly recorded between 1992 and 1994, before his incarceration and his infamous days on Death Row Records. There are some very powerful tracks like "Hellrazor" and the moving "Do 4 Love" but spreading it out over two discs hurts the overall feel of it. Pac's questions of self-worth on "Wonder If Heaven Got A Ghetto" also do a good job of showcasing Shakur the poet but there is no need for two versions of the same song when one got the job done just fine. Aside from these highlights, most of this two-disc album sounds exactly the same. More work could have been done to update the beats and make the tracks stand out more on their own. All that really remains in the average listener's mind when he thinks of the majority of music on "R U Still Down" is the raspy and tired-sounding voice of Shakur echoing through the speakers. As much as many fans criticize later posthomous releases for depending too much on samples and R&B-type production, a little of that might have actually helped this particular release. I'm not suggesting that the whole album sound that way but a few tracks could have stood to be polished a bit.
All in all, "R U Still Down" is a very raw and rugged-souding album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most under rated and overlooked Aug. 10 2003

Format:Audio CD
One cd, One song, and one reason. Disc two song # 13, "only fear of death". This is probably the darkest and deepest song PAC ever wrote in his career. If you listen to every single lyric on this particular track, you will surely know what i mean. When i first heard it, my reaction was, "whoa!". pac KNEW he was gonna die, he KNEW it. In this track he predicts several outcomes of his death,he knew he was gonna die but just didnt know how, but the fact he KNEW is absolutely astonishing. I personally dont own every cd by him, but have heard alot of his tracks, say 83% of them.(enough to know a thing or to about PAC). This one song stands out more then any song hes ever written. This cd is hidden behind his more popular cd's, for instance "all eyes on me"..and..."greatest hits". Although this one track is incredible, it also offers plenty of other hot tracks. My favorites are "only fear of death".."when i get free II".."i wonder if heaven got a ghetto(hip hop version)"....and most importantly "do for love"...a remake of bobby caldwells song, is excellent. PAC held it down on every cd but this is by far his best in my opinion, it supplies great lyrics as expected, straight gangster beats and eerie lyrics. If nothin else just listen to "only fear of death" and youll see where im getting at,
R.I.P. PAC fa sho, dead or alive your still the best

This album is prime Pac, his best. It's a perfect blend of true gangtsa rap and spiritualism. Most of these songs have the most punch and bang straight than any other rap EVER.
