Product Description

Amazon.com

Still I Rise, the third posthumous release of "new" material by Tupac Shakur, is not surprisingly a mixed bag. Recorded in 1996 with the Outlawz, the disc at its best does showcase the power of 'Pac. More politically acute (and complexly anti-Clinton) than most gangsta rap even attempts to be, "Letter to the President" and "The Good Die Young" find the star turning in some of his most focused lyrics and performances. Elsewhere, he often cedes the mic to other voices; the collaborations that result--"Secretz of War," "Tattoo Tears," the title cut--are the equivalent of campfire songs for the latter-day black cowboy. Dominated by phat beats and familiar imagery, they entertain but hardly illuminate. --Rickey Wright

The worst aspect of Tupac Shakur's death was the uncontrollable inevitability of it all. Even if he hadn't been cruelly gunned down, anyone who was paying attention knew his story wouldn't have a happy ending. His public persona was so confused: a tempestuous mix of poet, thug, sensitive soul, and woman-chasing playa. The same elements that made his downfall so unavoidable are the ones that make it a no-brainer that he would continue to fascinate and sell records years after he took his residence in heaven's ghetto. STILL I RISE is 2Pac's fifth posthumous release.
For all his posing and posturing, 2Pac did possess a lifetime worth of talent, talent that was crammed into his brief time in the spotlight. Even what's left over at this late date has significant artistic merit. From "Letter to the President," an earnest, simple, and direct admonition to Bill Clinton to the simple, perfectly old-school "Homeboyz" (which harkens back to his DU days), the tracks on STILL I RISE showcase what 2Pac was--an intelligent, complex talent.
Really, Tupac scares me. Not because he's become the black Elvis-with Tupac sitings as common as those of the famed entertainer-but because he continues to be so good, even in his death. One of the phenomenal talents of the late 20th century, Tupac Shakur didn't know how to write a bad song. Drawing from a life filled with pain and more pain, Tupac laid down his rhymes with an honest heart, never fearing consequences. He wrote about his Mama when it wasn't cool to be soft, forever etching him in the hearts of women everywhere. The rap-ballad "Still I Rise" could be a sequel to "Dear Mama," as it reaches for clarity in a world gone mad.
