Format:Audio CD
I won't go deep into detail on each song as almost all of them will be familiar to most Tupac fans. Even though Part 1: Thug and Part 2: Life are sold separately, they are meant to be part of one compilation, as evidenced by Afeni Shakur's little open letter inside.
If you're just getting into Tupac, and you're seeking a compilation, it's better to the "Greatest Hits" 2-CD compilation from 1998, as it's a good, solid overview of Tupac's work, having most of the tracks Tupac fans will need in a 2-CD set.
The problem with this new compilation (and Part 2: Life) is that they mostly offer songs already available on other Tupac CDs. There are some "unreleased" tracks offered, only two or so, and they're not worth the price of purchase. There are other officially unreleased tracks that should be here, such as "Life's So Hard."
So, unless you're a Tupac fan that has to have everything get the two, otherwise you can skip them.
(P.S., the "How You Want It" is like the one on "Greatest Hits," it censors out C. Delores Tucker's name)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great work January 9, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is some of 2Pac's best material. That alone gives it a perfect rating. But, I do agree with the other reviewer. The "Greatest Hits" album from 1998 would be a better investment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Again??? July 1, 2009
Format:MP3 Music
I love 2pac! however i cant see why they would release yet another greatest hits (with the same tracks!!!)(Except for 1 new one). I know that 2pac's music pool is running low, but at this point I would much rather they re-released post 2pac's death material in its original format. Meaning no added features or remixed beats, just so it can compete with todays industry, i feel that true 2pac fans need & want this.

I really was suprised how much his faith influenced his music even though it's explicit( cursing, swearing).I would recommend this but you must listen to the words.
