Japanese Blu-Spec CD pressing of this classic album. The Blue Spec format takes Blu-ray disc technology to create CD's which are compatible with normal CD players but provides ultra high quality sound. Sony. 2009.
An indispensable and definitive collection showcasing the passionate genius of the late rapper. The album's non-chronological sequence highlights the contradictory impulses that made Tupac's music so commanding; the 21 well-loved "hits", some slightly reedited for legal reasons, are accompanied by four previously unheard songs. Of the new material, the raw-sounding "God Bless the Dead" has been the subject of the most speculation, owing to its subject matter: a eulogizing of the late Notorious B.I.G.--a mysterious feat, since Tupac was killed six months before Biggie. And, making its first proper appearance on a Tupac album, the B-side "Hit 'Em Up" stands as the most intense outburst of pure venomous rage ever captured on tape. Whether he's waxing political, philosophical, or just plain paranoid, Tupac's empathetic, charismatic style remains unmatched. --Charley Gothic

This compilation of 2Pac's masterworks from his Interscope, Death Row and Amaru days respectivly shows just what a great talent he was. His most notable aperences in pop music were from his Death Row days, portrayed by the media as a mysoganist he lived up to his 'thug' lifestyle and corted controversy on more than one occasion. Although his most famous and bestselling work was with Suge Knight's Death Row Records his best works are from his earlier albums 'Keep Ya Head Up' and 'Temptations' both show him at his political best and 'Brenda's Got A Baby' shows him as an emotional street poet with important things to say. His Death Row Days were by no means poor though and the brilliant '2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted' as well as the violent 'Hit 'em Up' which ironicly could have led to his murder stand out. Very good and very violent a must for any fan of Hip Hop old or new. Comparisons to Marvin Gaye should not offend any soul lovers. The only downside of this package is it makes you really feel that his best work was ahead if him.
If you're new to the genre, and are tired of hearing crap like Chingy and Nelly, and don't have a single Pac album (poor bastard), this is a good way to start. It features most of his best songs, but suprisingly omits his GREATEST song, "Pain." In order to get that song in it's original format, you'll have to buy an import CD or download it off the net. Either way, make sure you get it.
After this, you'll want to hear more. I'd suggest Me Against The World (his best album), All Eyez On Me and Makaveli, which are the three crowning achievements in his catalogue.

Making a Pac Greatest Hits album was impossible if limited to two CDs of music.
First of all, this collection focuses mostly on his most popular tracks, as opposed to his BEST... Read more
