The late Tupac Shakur's second album recalls the densely sampled sonic strengths of Public Enemy's Fear of a Black Planet, except here the bass lines are cranked and the sly samples tend to the gentler touches of Motown and Curtis Mayfield than James Brown. This contrast between hard and soft is appropriate because Shakur is as likely to sweetly honor black sisters ("Keep Ya Head Up") as he is to get angry in your face. Consequently, even with guest spots including the Ices Cube and T., 2Pac's strong raps remain this joint's real shining star. --David Cantwell --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The best intro song to a album i heard, "Holler if you hear me" is what rap should be, not any odd rapper could flow to this song, Eminem has a fast rap speech, but i still couldnt see him doing any good behind this, and 50cent doenst come near, "Point a finger" is very good, the amaizingly structured rhymes go perfectly with the beat, love that song, Last words has a brilliant beat, i think cypress hill got influance from this one. "PEEP game" is a hhhheavvy track, the lyrics arnt that strong, it just sound amaizing when he first goes "Goody, goody, gundrops n**ga get your hoody....." keep your head up is one of the best songs ever made lol, but it doesnt suit the album, the rest of the album is fast paste, dissin and this one is slow and incurriging to gals, "I get around" is very very very good the tune. the rappin, digital underground, everything its just a amaizin track, "PAPAZ SONG" is a truelly stunning track, the lyrics are sad, true and quility, the last song i dont like, dunnoy 4.8/5 then :P. reccomend this 2 all
It's 2003 now and I know more rap listeners are getting stuck into new school but for me, the old times will always be the best. 'Strictly 4 my N.I.G.G.A.Z' was made back in '93, a year before 'Thug Life, vol. 1' was released. Consisting of 16 songs altogether, 2pac released 4 songs from this CD but personally I reckon he should have released other songs as most of the songs on this CD are outstanding.
As a rap listener, most people look for the lyrics when they listen to rap but for me, beats is more important, I don't know why so don't go on bugging me about it. However I still do find lyrics in a song sometimes. Trust me, this CD is full of beats that will bring back memories and will get your groove on for real. Definitions of this is like 'Represintin '93'. When I first heard this, I just couldn't believe it. The beat is one of the most FINEST I have heard in a long time! 'The Streets R Deathrow' also features another great beat and it's funny how it was originally done by 'Barry White'. His lyrical skills are absolutely amazing in this. 'I Get Around' is one of those classic rap songs, which has a groovy beat to dance to. However, the lyrics in this lack.
There are other times where 2pac rips it up and expresses his deepest feelings. A definition of what I'm talking about is 'Papa'z Song', a very emotional song that outlined his life without a father. Here, he speaks negative comments about how his father was not there for him and he invites a special guest, Wycked.Read more ›
2Pac's only real bumpy moment came last year when he became the center of the seemingly annual censorhip debates surrounding hip hop. He was not only sued by the widow of a cop who was killed by some kid who had 2Pac's first album, 2Pacalypse Now, in his car (along with George Michael's album and a bunch of other pop albums) but he became the whipping boy of the esteemed Dan Quayle, then vice-president of these here United States.
In some ways, Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z. is his reply to his critics. It's a virtual diatribe against Dan Quayle and censorship and it's much, much, much harder than the sometimes too tepid 2Pacalypse Now.
And that's okay by me, because it's a much better album. Of course, I like that old style Bomb Squad sound. And, of course, a good scritch-scratch over some PE whine and nice bass does it for me almost every time. So I might be biased. On the other hand, it is all about lyrics and 2Pac comes correct on this tip as well.
So, the verdict? It's uneven but when it's on, it's on.
I think he needs to stop that processing his voice thing and he could do with fewer or shorter interludes. But even if he keeps all that along with the rest of the stuff he did on this album, his third effort will be one phat album. And if he drops the voice and the interludes, it might even be phat+.
Give "Holler If Ya Hear Me," "Last Wordz," and "Souljah's Revenge" a good listen. They're worth the price of admission, anyway. The album is pretty dope. Not a classic, but he's on his way. Next week, when you're picking up De La and Snoop, pick up this not-quite-new effort as well.
