Product Description

Amazon.ca

Still I Rise, the third posthumous release of "new" material by Tupac Shakur, is not surprisingly a mixed bag. Recorded in 1996 with the Outlawz, the disc at its best does showcase the power of 'Pac. More politically acute (and complexly anti-Clinton) than most gangsta rap even attempts to be, "Letter to the President" and "The Good Die Young" find the star turning in some of his most focused lyrics and performances. Elsewhere, he often cedes the mic to other voices; the collaborations that result--"Secretz of War", "Tattoo Tears", the title cut--are the equivalent of campfire songs for the latter-day black cowboy. Dominated by phat beats and familiar imagery, they entertain but hardly illuminate. --Rickey Wright

4.0 out of 5 stars an album with depth. May 18 2004
By DAMION
Format:Audio CD
Tupac is known as the most popular rap artist in the world up to this day.he had shed light on so much social issue that affect the promising lower/middle class afro-nationals and young adult worldwide.this album was release years after his death yet the production,lyrics and topics are very much modern.timbaland,neptunes and kanye west can give you today hits and tomorrow forgotten but if you want a classic ,an album that will have the same effect on tomorrow generation that it have on you now,then you need west coast productions.
1.letter to the president-3.5/5
good lyrics but the the beat is way off.nice verse from big syke.
2.still I Rise-5/5
the best song on the album.tupac give you an over view of his life from pre-birth to late teen.nice verse from the outlawz.
3.secret of war-4/5
good song.outlawz try a little too hard on this one.tupac kill the verse.
4.Baby Don't Cry (Keep Ya Head up II)-5/5
commercial song with uplifting message.outlawz have stronger lyrics on this one.tupac voice overshadow them as usual.
5.As the World Turns -5/5
this is a strong social commentary song that touch various aspect of our life.it talk about aids,when the media was promoting songs about drugs and guns and many women.it talk about religious rights,now there is a rift between christian and islam.it talk about warfare among others.
06.Black Jesuz -3/4
good song about how they feel about sharing the smae faith with the white population.this song is a little racist.
07. Homeboyz -5/5
great beef tune,great beat by daz.tupac distroy this track.good job by the outlawz holding their own.
08-Hell 4 a Hustler 5/5
i love this song.i feel the pain that he putting across.the message is strong.

This 1999 release followed nicely after Tupac's Greatest Hits release just a year before which showed that the rapper's talent continued even after his death. Although not strictly a solo album, Tupac clearly shines the most on Still I Rise - a 15 track LP featuring his talented backing group, the Outlawz.
Its too bad that further production material this good and this consistent was not recorded during Tupac's short lifetime as the tracks here are of much better quality then those on other albums such as Until The End Of Time (2001) and Better Dayz (2002). The spirit lifting 'Baby Don't Cry', the sequel to Tupac's song 'Keep Ya Head Up' from 1993 leads the album's promotion with a video featuring snippets of Tupac and starring the Outlawz with a bright beat and good lyrics on top. The up-tempo 'High Speed' and the significant 'Letter 2 The President' show that producer Johnny 'J' hasn't lost his touch as both tracks are some of the albums' best. Not forgetting the important message given through 'The Good Die Young', ironically featuring Tupac and slain Outlawz group member Kadafi, both gunned down tragically just two months apart.
Production for Still I Rise is great but the Outlawz rhyme skills are not quite up to scratch when compared with Tupac's, although they do not spoil the album, however 'Y'all Don't Know Us' does prove that they were great potentials even without their shining star. This is perhaps the best of his posthumous releases (aside from the Makaveli album), Still I Rise was greatly overlooked and should be a directive for any other future albums to be heard from Mr Shakur's estate.
One of 1999's best.

I's just like to say that the ONLY reason Still I Rise is bad is because of the outlawz. They ruin every good Tupac song, which would be even better if he did them solo. Take "Hail Mary", for instance, on The 7 Day Theory. 2Pac does BRILLIANTLY on his first two verses, and then we've got Napoleon and Kastro coming onto it and wrecking the whole song. Letter to the President is a good track before the outlawz wreck it. This happens throughout the whole album. I can't believe they think they can stay as a rap group without Pac. They are PATHETIC without Tupac lighting up every track he's on. They are only where they are today because Pac chose them as his group. Not trying to undermine Pac or anything, but his group sucked. Even an AVERAGE rap group would kane the outlawz on any track. Don't get me wrong, I am a HUGE fan of Tupac and have more respect for him and his work than any aritst. Don't bother with this album, it is 2Pac's worst joint effort. Try Thug Life instead if you want a different 2Pac group project.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Less Quality Material Feb. 26 2004
By "xklox"
Format:Audio CD
More than three years after his death, it's difficult to believe there's still unreleased 2Pac material out there, much less quality material. After no less than three posthumous albums built around what 2Pac produced when he was still alive (plus an assortment of bootlegs making the rounds), the well apparently still hasn't run dry, and Still I Rise is the inevitable result. As on the Notorious B.I.G. album released just weeks before though, there are some pretty wide gaps on Still I Rise between rhymes actually delivered by 2Pac. There's also an undeniable -- some would say obvious -- impression that this album just doesn't bear the mark of 2Pac himself.
Making up the difference in both categories is Outlawz, a quartet of rappers keeping the flow going between 2Pac fragments. As with 2Pac's other posthumous releases, Still I Rise comes with four or five solid tracks that may have survived the cuts on a real 2Pac album. The title track and "Letter to the President" are obvious winners, still reliant on the syrupy G-funk that 2Pac made famous, and (thankfully) not influenced by the increasing late-'90s insurgence of muzaky hip-hop productions. And "Baby Don't Cry (Keep Ya Head Up II)" -- 2Pac's self-produced follow-up to 1993's "Keep Ya Head Up" -- is a surprisingly touching message track. For any of 2Pac's fans, it'll be so good to hear his voice again on new material that the cash-in nature of Still I Rise can easily be overlooked. It's just not the album 2Pac would have produced had he still been alive.
