Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

An indispensable and definitive collection showcasing the passionate genius of the late rapper. The album's nonchronological 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

Customer Reviews

It is worth buying this cd instead of studio albums if you are a casual Pac fan.
"derbyfanforever"
Now this is a great cd for 2pac rookies, it gives a mixture of Pac, Gangsta (Hit Em Up) Caring (Keep Ya Head Up, Dear Mama)or partypac (Cali Love, How Do U Want It).
F. Dean
Tupac was one of the best rappers ever to live as his Greatest Hits cd showcases.

The Cd starts out with two great songs: Keep Ya Head Up and Two of Amerikaz Most Wanted. Keep Ya Head Up is about the troubles that our women suffer today. A slower sad song. Followed by Tupac and Snoop Dogg kicking a$$ in a song with the best beat and best lyrics. The next few songs aren't the greatest, but good beats and good lyrics. A few point outs for the rest of Disc One: Unconditional Love: A very, very good sad song about hard times and loved ones. Trapped: About livin a thug life. Life Goes On: Helping to understand death and giving dedication to their friend Kato. Hit 'Em Up: A powerful, vulgar rap portraying the hate against Biggie Smallz and Junior M.A.F.I.A. Disc Two: Troublesome is another powerful, fast song about living a hard life in the ghetto. Good Beat. Brenda's Got a Baby is a realistic portrayal of teen pregnecies and how life goes wrong for some. I Ain't Mad at ya is not a great song, but stands it's ground. Changes is one of Tupacs greatest. It's fast beat and poetically written lyrics combine to make a moving song about changing society and treating humans right. California love talks about the hustling scene in Cali. Picture Me Rollin, an upbeat boastful fun song about money, cars, and High Rollin. How Long Will They Mourn Me is a slower dedication by Thug life to Kato. Dear Mama is a song for Tupacs struggled stressed mother that did her best to raise Tupac. It's all About U is about women and sex, fast and fun. To Live and Die in L.A. is a slower song talking about the scene in South Cali. A compilation of 2Pacs best songs.

2Pac's style, lyrics, beats, originality, (I can go on forever) will never be matched. What makes him so good is that he raps about things that actually happen to him when he's not talking about sex or cursing out east coast rappers. This is a great collection of songs, and some are edited for legal reasons. The addition of the unreleased songs, especially "Changes", puts this above All Eyez On Me as his best album. The ratings max at 100.

If you've liked the previous work from this amazing artist, this you will be sure to love. This album contains all of Tupac's greatest song with the most amazing lyrics and deep feelings. He will always have a place in my heart, and in all of his true fans. It must be true when people say that there is a little 2Pac in all of us..........

I'm not gonna front. I'm just an average white(Portuguese/Italian) kid from an average working/middle class family. So the whole "thug" thing is something I can't really relate to, but with 2pac, it don't really matter. He pulls ya in like a trip'd out car accident on the side of the road, maybe you shouldn't "I spy", but you just can't help it, and you look and stare anyway.
When I dropped this cd, clip'd on the headphones, what dude was say'n, listen up, pop open this cd kid, I've got somethin'for ya . . .
* "GOD BLESS THE DEAD" - I've been guilty of say'n sh** like, "just say no to crime", but when you're a 8 yr. old lil' kid and mom's slam'n down 3 jobs, no daddy, and you got the street whisper'n, "piss'd, hey kid, we's ya'll family now". Guess what, early graduation to thug life.
* "HIT' EM UP" - This is one of those "rock em' sock em'" anthems that get me strok'd every time. Dude is sling'n out rhymes that would slug holes through any bullet proof vest, nuff said.
* "I AIN'T MAD AT YA" - I dig the hook, "Yo, you ain't feel'n me?, cool, do ya thang, I'm still wetcha, got only mad luv for ya boa".
I wish I could've heard this classic jam years ago, I'd still have relationships with best friends that I've push'd away over the years.
* "CALIFORNIA LOVE" - This one's great to jump and get the party started. The "Doc" Dre, made a house call on this one, drop'n hard sexy beats, and loops like nobody's business.
* "DEAR MAMA" - To hear this sup'd up macho mofo throw out love for his mom's, forgetaboutit, that's what it's all about baby.
Sure, he's a hard ass impressario, but thats what makes 2pac so special is because as much as he's a hard mother f*****, he's also sensitive, intuitive, insightful and always bang on the dime.

I'm not a very big fan of the "music" they call rap but Tupac Shakur truly transcends hip hop as a music form and that fact is very evident when one listens to this double cd. The guy is a song writer not a rapper (like Eminem or the deceased Notorious BIG are rappers just rapping random things that rhyme and are clever)... though rap was his medium I put him up there with John Lennon and Bob Marley. The whole album is deep lyrically and the musical backdrop (provided by hip hop's best producers, Dr. Dre, Johnny J, Daz,Easy Mo Bee) is trump tight quality-wise. When you listen to this CD it's like you can get inside Shakur's mind... both the good and the bad. His clear emotional voice and poetical word combinations are that of a man who has seen it all. His death appears inevitable as one lets this album play. An incredible artist that totally transcended rap music. Long Live the memory of Tupac!
