Product Description

Product Description

2pac ~ R U Still Down? (Remember Me?)


26 cuts of "gangsta rap" that only increase in doom when you realize the guy talking it didn't live to laugh about it. Perhaps he now knows the answer to his question, "I Wonder If Heaven Got a Ghetto," which shows up here twice. Shakur, like most hard rappers, liked to sound tough, kicking it with song titles unprintable in a family newspaper. But, underneath the braggadocio, there was fear. "Only Fear of Death," "Nothing to Lose," and "I'm Losin' It" tell a far different story than "Fake Ass Bitches." His artistry could never, however, catch up to the sad fate of his life. --Rob O'Connor

These are 26 cut recordings from Tupac's earlier days taken from the years of 91' through to 94'. A long listen, but at the end you end up realising what a great loss of talent the world of hip hop suffered when the thug rapper was tragically gunned down back in 1996.
Although these are songs that didn't make it to his earlier albums, this did not doubt my opinions of their quality - it was good material, although not consistent enough. This is more of a black and white album with no shades of gray, the good songs are great, the bad songs are terrible. 'R U Still Down?' does have its hot spots with tracks such as the unforgettable 'Do For Love', the religious 'I Wonder If Heaven Gotta Ghetto' and the haunting and very mysterious 'Only Fear Of Death'. Lyrically, at this stage of his life especially, Tupac's views are more political and intellectual for the majority of the album since he had not quite reached his Death Row days just yet.
The two disc set, in a way, tells a story of a man who was on the verge of something here, yet never got the time to fulfil it as you can tell some verses are incomplete and hesitant. Do not think this lessens the albums quality, as about 80% of it is worth while. Although one of my favourite Tupac albums, 'R U Still Down?' in short is a sad and depressing story of a man who knew his end was to come far too soon.

Shortly after 2Pac died, there were rumors that hundreds of unreleased songs remained in the vaults; a mere two months after his death, the first posthumous record, 'Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory', appeared. The material was exceptionally strong, but some saw it as exploitative the way Death Row featured Pac's bullet-riddled body being crucified on the cover, and the way they focused on the tons of subliminal messages suggesting that he had faked his death. It was after this that his mother Afeni Shakur gained the rights to all of his unreleased recordings. This double-disc album of material recorded between '91 and '94 was released a little more than a year after his death and is, at it's best, a showcase of the younger, more politically-minded 2Pac.
Unfortunately, the fact that it is almost 30 tracks deep makes it a downright exhausting listen, and since these were demo-quality tracks that were obviously deemed unfit for any of his early albums, you can imagine that the material is not really all that strong. Even though most of the songs had backing musical tracks "reconstructed", the production is overall pretty lazy. During the first part of the first disc, the laid-back, mellow and easy-going feel of most of the instrumentals have a certain aura of sadness about them. Their mood will make you recall what talent and potential was so quickly taken from us, but after a while it begins to sound like standard-issue fare. In fact, if it wasn't for Pac's strong and committed voice, the dense and weakly-produced music would probably put you to sleep. For the most part, the man sounds good, spinning out rhymes that are alternately clever or startling, but occasionally he begins repeating himself and the ideas at times feel a little stale.

This is Tupac's second posthumous release after Makaveli, and it pales drastically in comparison to his other albums. But that's not to say that it's bad. As with all other Pac albums, it's very easy to listen to and provokes you to think about the hidden messages in his songs. But with almost 30 songs, it's plain as day that this album is quantity over quality.
Fans of 2Pac's biggest complaint about this album is the mediocre production. It's fairly lazy beats laced with the man's strong and committed voice. And if you've heard Pac's earlier albums, this release might just even bore you. But if you want to mellow out to the most soothing album he ever put out, then R U Still Down is perfect for you (as is his latest release, The Rose That Grew From Concrete).
The best songs on the album are I Wonder If Heaven Got A Ghetto, Do For Love, R U Still Down and Only Fear Of Death. I Wonder If Heaven Got A Ghetto became an instant 2Pac classic, as it became one of his many now famous mantras (like Keep Ya Head Up). And Only Fear Of Death is one of the few songs with an outstanding beat.
This release is STRICTLY for hardcore Tupac fans. If you don't own a Pac album yet, I recommend All Eyez On Me, Me Against The World or Makaveli (which is scheduled to be re-released some time in early May). And if you're one of those old school rap buffs, 2Pacalypse Now just might be the best CD you've ever heard in your life. He may be dead (or not), but his words continue to reach stressed young people who need the kind of encouragement he preached. His legacy lives on, and Amaru records have already released 4 posthumous Tupac albums. March 27th, there will be a fifth. And I can't wait.

Any true Pac's fan will loves this album in the first time hear, it is hard for me to decided which one of the cd's is the best, cuz both of them are GREAT!!! But the one thing for sure is, this album is my third favourite after "Me Againts The
World" & "All Eyes On Me". Although most of the songs in this album are remixes but they are still great, might be the reason for this, is because the original versions is too sloppy, so that's why its never appeared in the previous albums, and if it's so then this album is true definitions of Lost Tapes. Unlike the others Pac's posthomous album, this one is far from commercial approach. You don't have to worry about the new beats because it's still carrying the sounds of Pac's album before the Death Rows years. We should give a big props to Ricky Rouse who makes a magic touch for the most of songs with his excellent guitar plays, which not only great complement for the songs but also turns Pac's lyrics into vivid picture that you can see clearly like movie on the big screen. If you already have "Me Againts The World" & "All Eyes On Me", you must have this album or if you wanna start hearing Pac, this is not bad choice.
