Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

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

I am a diehard Tupac fan, and I love anything he does, but this album is my second favorite of his behind Me Agaisnt the World. It's got a lot of different Pac on here, different moods, some early stuff from him and new stuff. But I'mma keep it real, if you don't like Pac then you probly won't like this, but if you don't like Pac then shouldn't even be reading this. But if you liked All Eyez On Me, you gon like this album 10 times better. Peace

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.

First off, I want to know why ...so many rap fans hated this album. I've had this CD for ages and I enjoy it heaps (but it did take me a long time!)
To be honest, I haven't been a 2pac fan since his younger days but I quickly grew into his music when 'Me Against the World' was released. Many people are familiar with 2pac when he was with Deathrow but this is some old stuff created back even before '2pacalypse Now' was released.
Both CDs are generally good, though I like CD2 a bit better. Some great songs on this CD are: Nothing to Lose, I Wonder If Heaven Got a Ghetto, R U Still Down, Hellrazor, Lie to Kick It, When I Get Free, Hold On Be Strong, ..., Do for Love, Nothin But Love, When I Get Free II and Only Fear of Death.
2pac released 2 songs from this CD (I think), I Wonder If Heaven Got a Ghetto and Do for Love. Great tracks to listen to but could have been worked on some more. Some tracks I reckon he should have released are Only Fear of Death and Nothing to Lose.
You won't find 2pac's thug style on here but you will find some pretty heavy, old stuff on here. Generally, I would recommend this CD to true 2pac fans. It's a great album but would take a long time to like.

I'm surprised how this album has been accepted. Lets not get carried away with "his legacy" and his tragic death and all the controversy surrounding 2Pac. Everybody already knows about all that.

R U Still Down is my favorite album by 2Pac. Makaveli and All Eyez are both 5 stars to me, but R U Still Down is more raw. Especially as far as the production is concerned. A lot of people are apparently disappointed by the production on this album. I find it to have a sense of being more genuine, and more fitting than the other posthumous releases. This is probably since Pac actually had some input on creating these tracks. Overall, the sound of the album (and individual tracks) is more whole. Listening to R U Still Down helps to show how much of a project Makaveli and All Eyez On Me were. Those two albums were obviously much more orchestrated and calculated, and designed to provoke in every way. They were much more surgical and precise.

R U Still Down, however, is just straight hip-hop. There's scratching on here! There's no name dropping, or disses aimed at specific people. Just general expression of different emotions. Instead of a song about Tipper Gore or Bad Boy (for example) specificly, you get the more general (and undated) song about the struggles in general with government oppression or social commentary or anger or whatever. This is technically easier for a listener to relate to, since hardly any of us actually know Tipper Gore or Puffy, etc.....but somehow the audience doesn't want that. wtf?

"Thug Style" is probably the single song by Pac to most adhere to the street chronicling and nostalgic waxing scenarios in hip-hop. And at the same time, he's replying directly to everybody giving this album bad reviews: 'you don't know my style.

"R U Still Down? (Remember Me)", a double album 26 tracks deep, is far from impressive. The previously unreleased tracks, recorded between the years '91-'94, represent Pac at his lowest state lyrically. To be honest, the lyrical performance is weak. The beats are nothing more than average and the production left plenty of room for improvement. After several recordings with Death Row, this album leaves much to be desired. Gone is the fury, the agression, the hatred, the overall emotion that he so vividly displayed in his more recent recordings. "I Wonder If Heaven Got A Ghetto", the albums first single, originally recorded in '93, is far from single worthy. "Do For Love", the albums second single, is better than the first, but still (despite a decent lyrical performance) is not of single status either. This is not to say that the entire album was a flop though. 2Pac raps with fury and rage on "Hellraizer", displaying his burning passion and emotion listeners were once fond of. "Thug Style" has a more modern sound than the majority of the album, the beat is above average, the lyrics are strong, and the track is rather satisfying. On the whole, the album becomes more enjoyable the more you listen to it. Don't expect to be impressed the first time around, it takes a while to adapt yourself to a younger Pac, different than that of his character at the time of his passing.
