Product Description

Product Description


Slick, groove-based hip-hop from Tupac Shakur, his half-brother MoPreme, and a handpicked posse that includes Syke, Macadoshis, and the Rated R, along with guest appearances from Nate Dogg and Y.N.V. The huge "Thug Life" tattoo on Tupac's chest shows exactly how committed Shakur was to this long-term project. The first batch of songs Thug Life submitted to Interscope Records was allegedly rejected as being too hardcore for release; the material that was ultimately approved for release as Vol. 1 is very accessible musically and foreshadows the "morbid party" approach Shakur later perfected on All Eyez on Me. "Pour Out a Little Liquor" and "Bury Me a G" are classic 2Pac tracks, and this project shows a remarkable consistency of quality, no matter who's got control of the mic. --Greg Turkington --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thug Life - Where Ya At? Feb. 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
Thug Life was Pac's clique besides the Outlawz. This group includes many talented underated rappers such as Macadoshis, Big Syke, The Rated R and Mopreme (Pac's halfbrother).
This 10 track realease is a good one, definitely recommended for your rap collection, especially if you're a 2Pac fan, and like old school.
10 tracks. No skits. Just pure hip-hop! Lyrically they tell you ghetto stories and shows how they made it through their life and life on the streets is.
Best song is "Pour Out A Little Liquor" where 'Pac does a solo and gives it out for his lost ones. Touching song and a true classic. Besides that you get very much non commerical music which is also one of the reasons I love this record. Pure Hip-Hop! Production is handled mostly by Johnny J himself, and Warren G produces a joint.
Other highlights is Bury Me A G, S*** Don't Stop, Under Pressure, How Long Will They Mourn Me, Str8 Ballin, Stay True and Cradle to the Grave.
This might be 2Pac's most underated project in his career, for the fact that it's a group album, but still a great one. Everybody here gives it up, but where they at? Mopreme had a hard-to-find album out, Syke has some joints out, but Macadoshis and Rated R are totally gone. The blend of the rappers styles is perfect. It's all in the mix on this "str8 from the street" record. Get a copy for yourself. Not only do you get to hear 2Pac, but a whole group of young and hungry rappers back in '94 of course. It's Thug Life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rated R Jan. 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
Regretably, I don't listen to much hip hop these days. Growing older has that effect. The rap music made during my younger days has taken on a nostalgiac tone. With that said, Thug Life still gets major rotation.
I view this record as 2Pac's best. The Machiavelli and Eyez records are nice, but for my money I still favor this one. The ... that Suge Knight and Death Row puts out these days pales in comparison to a real classic like this one. If you are a fan, past or present, pick this one up.
Without a doubt, 2Pac is the star here. See Str8 Ballin' for evidence. But what lures me back to this record time and time again is not 2Pac, it is his supporting cast. Rated R in particular. I can't believe he disappeared after this record. Syke and Mopreme too. The cast compliments one another, and 2Pac has the opportunity to hone only one verse at a time.
Some reviewers have complained about the 10 song playlist. I like it. It reminds me of older, classic records. These guys perfected 10 songs, and didn't worry about releasing a 2 disc set like Pac did later in life.
As I turn to Rock and Soul, I'll always come back and love this record.

This is a true classic cd, it only has ten tracks but each track is either great or a classic.
Lyrically this is one of the best albums ever along with nas illmatic.
this is what I think of the tracks
1.bury me a g-the best on the album, atrue classic, some of the best lyrics and the beat is lovly 5/5
2.dontget it twisted-a great beat, this is what you call a rap tune 5/5
3.s#*t dont stop-not a classic but a great track 4.5/5
4.pour out a little liquor-a classic one of the best on the album, really a 2pac track, has some of the best lyrics 5/5
5.stay true-another classic, nice beat and great lyrics 5/5

7.under pressure-a great track with a great hook 4.5/5
8.street fame-a classic, the beat is awsome and the lyrics are great 5/5
9.cradle to the grave-yet another classic on this superb album 5/5
10.str8 ballin-Agreat track to end the album 4.5/5
This is a must have album, after this 2pac deserved to be burried a G and I hope the others make some new stuff especially mopreme and the rated R.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid group album from Tupac July 14 2002
Format:Audio CD
Thug Life consists of 2pac, Syke, Macadoshis, Mopreme (Tupac's brother-in-law), and The Rated R. Tupac is the most known and talented member of the group and his partners bring solid contributions as the chemistry is very solid on this album.
The album starts off with "Bury Me a G", a nice song to begin with. It uses a nice Isley Brother's sample. "Don't Get It Twisted" features a really nice beat as the members create a faster paced hardcore song. "S--- Don't Stop" uses a great sample of "Aqua Boogie" from Parliament and this song is one of the highlights of the album. "Pour Out a Little Liquor" is a song that everyone should know as this song is dedicated to their fallen friends. "Stay True" uses a nice guitar and drum beat and the song has a nice laid back west-coast feel. "How Long Will They Mourn Me?" is the best song on the album as it is a great tribute song to their friend Kato. Nate Dogg's contribution is amazing as usual. "Under Pressure" features a beat that is amped up and Tupac shows his amazing lyrical skills throughout his verse. Particularly: "You wonder why I made this way/ I wasn't/ Turned out I was raised this way". "Cradle to the Grave" shows each member giving autobiographical accounts of the hardships they had to face growing up. "St8 Ballin'" is a Tupac solo song and has a nice beat sampling Bootsy Collins.
The album is only 10 songs and 40 minutes long, but this is the strength of the album. The listener is given just enough and does not have to sit through any bad songs to fill up space. This album is very reminiscent of the style Tupac took into his "Me Against The World" album. This is a must for all Tupac fans and other fans should check this one out if you like anything Tupac has done.
