Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

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.

Format: Audio CD
An album full of hard beats, explicit lyrics and a man on the mic who has just about had enough of life and the way things are. Causing controversy left, right and centre after this release, Tupac Shakur was straight under the spotlight and was seen as one of the main representatives of the gangsta rap evolution that was overtaking the charts by not just himself, but fellow rappers Snoop Doggy Dogg, Dr Dre and the rest of Suge Knight's Death Row clique.
Although mainly an album full of frustration and restlessness heard on favoured tracks such as 'Holla If Ya Hear Me', 'Point Tha Finga' and the furious 'Last Wordz' (featuring Ice Cube and Ice T), Tupac does show his softer side on the inspiring and spirit lifting single release 'Keep Ya Head Up' and his comical sexual conquests on 'I Get Around', a great party track for 1993, but the violence returns on 'Streetz R Death Row' with lines like '... my homie lost his family and snapped / shot up half the block to bring him back...'. His final expression of anger is at his father on 'Papaz Song' a sad yet angry tale told by Tupac how his father left with him believing he's dead.
As explosive as this album may be, it remains as one of Tupac's best. Compare to his '2Pacalypse Now' debut, 'Strictly...' concentrates less on his political views and more on current issues involving the streets and the violence within them. A consistent album, which is hard to find these days, and makes this a worth while listen. This is Tupac at his rawest - 16 tracks of 100% pure gangsta rap.

Fulfilling much of the promise showcased on 2Pac's debut album a year earlier, Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z. offers a wealth of thoughtful moments such as "Keep Ya Head Up" yet still makes plenty of room for good-time celebrations such as "I Get Around." These two hits in particular make Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z. a noteworthy, if sometimes overlooked, moment amid 2Pac's cluttered catalog. They also represent the two approaches 2Pac initially took with his music, emphasizing his thoughtfulness (another insightful highlight being "Papa'z Song") rather than the thuggishness so often associated with him, particularly in the wake of his death. A few notable West Coast rappers join the festivities here -- Ice Cube and Ice-T on "Last Wordz" and Digital Underground on "I Get Around" -- but 2Pac unfortunately doesn't have any notable producers to support him, as the quickly dated production stands as the album's only potential drawback. Not quite as remarkable as 2Pac's following two masterpieces, Me Against the World (1995) and All Eyez on Me (1996), Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z. nonetheless merits acknowledgement, particularly in relation to the string of posthumously released Makaveli-era recordings littering his catalog.

This album is completly astonishing.
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

Like most people, I didn't start listening to 2pac until I heard 'Dear Mama' and 'So Many Tears'. After that, I just knew that I had to listen to 2pac's earlier hits and when I came across this, you wouldn't know how much I was stunned to hear the songs on this CD!
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.
