Customer Reviews

This has to be one of the best albums I've ever heard.
Jake Smith
Really listen to the album because if you don't you might never understand why some people say 2pac was more than a rapper, he was a leader.
"ric q"
The beats are very good and he really finds lyrics to fit to each song.

Makaveli is arguably Tupac Shakur's greatest record. Released just a few months after his untimely death, and featuring some of the most disturbing lyrics from this man who supposedly went mad after he was shot 5 times the first time. But to me, that shooting just opened his eyes. Extremely prophetic and poetic with so many references to death and him calling out the fake busters which really made no sense back then but makes perfect sense today. (Jay-Z fell off the worst and Mobb Deep went straight soft, Dr. Dre is really showing signs of his other side with his appearance although he still makes tight beats, Nas is the only one that has maintained his illness.) The production if I must say is excellent. Tupac's flow is sick the whole way through, opting for his slow flow a little more on this album. Me & My Girlfriend; one of Pac's greatest songs, is a chilling metaphor about his gun. I didn't catch on to the metaphor until someone actually pointed it out to me, but that makes that song so much more special. He disses and dismisses Jay- Z, Nas and Mobb Deep on Against All Odds-another chilling battle track packed with anger and lyrical adeptness, and Bomb First. These three artists are now all mysteriously beefing... Tupac takes stabs at Dr. Dre as well on Toss It Up and To Live & Die In LA.
On this album you could tell that his patience was wearing thin and his trust for others except his real friends had already faded. This is one of the most open portraits of this misunderstood troubled man. Krazy, White Man'z World, Hold Ya Head are all classics and drop knowledge. Tupac really was a special person and it is a shame he had to take the thug way to his demise.

The last album that 2Pac, under the alias of Makaveli, made while he was alive. Its an amazing end too, one of the best hes ever done, tied only with All Eyez On Me.

He takes the name of a Italian philospher who faked his death, and returned seven days later to take revenge on his enemies. This, along with Pacs death right before the release of this album, lead people to believe that he was still alive, and that he would eventually return.

The music itself is really good, Pac gets more spiritual than he's ever been before, with cuts like Hail Mary, and Blashemy, but keeps his gangsta style on Life Of An Outlaw, and To Live And Die In LA.

The best songs on here are Bomb First (My Second Reply), Hail Mary, To Live And Die In LA,

(And my personal favorites:) Life Of An Outlaw, Me and My Girlfriend.

All the others are really good as well, but those are the stand out tracks.

Life Of An Outlaw, Me and My Girlfriend are really amazing songs.

In my opinion, they should have put on the Greatest Hits collection, but whatever...

The Outlawz are once again on Pacs (excuse me, Makveli's) album.

I really, really like the Outlawz, I think they are a great rap group. A new member makes his debut on this album, Young Noble. He has his own, distinct style of rapping. He raps like he has a swollen tongue, but he is pretty good, and he has stuck around with the group ever since this album.

I, personally, believe that he is really dead, and people should let him rest in peace, but those who believe this only do so out of love for him.

Dead or not, he's still the greatest rapper ever.

R.I.P...

2pac, Makaveli, The Don Killuminati, whatever he calls himself the fact remains that he is the greatest rapper of all time. This was his last masterpiece, a must-have for any true 2pac fan. The Intro is very harsh, 2pac attacks several east coast rapper's including Nas, Notorious B.I.G., Mobb Deep, and Jay-Z. Next comes "Hail Mary" which is one of 2pac's greatest songs ever, that's why you can find it on his "Greatest Hits" album. "Toss it Up" is more of a party track with a bumpin' beat and lots of R&B singing. Next is my favorite song on the album "To Live & Die in L.A." a laid back track with a very nice beat where 2pac tells us why he loves L.A. so much. "Blasphemy" is kind of a dark track with a lot of emotion. On "Life of an Outlaw" 2pac & the Outlaws rap with a lot of energy that is balanced by a nice laid back R&B chourus. "Just Like Daddy" is a slower song where 2pac talks about treating women just like a daddy would. "Krazy" is a very good song with a laid back vibe. "White Man'z World" is a very powerfull track with an obvious message. The next track "Me and My Girlfriend" is great song, just ask Jay-Z. "Hold Ya Head" is a song that 2pac sends out to everbody in prison, telling them to keep their heads up. The last song "Against All Odds" is another diss record dedicated to the east coast (Puff Daddy is added to the hit list). Overall this is a classic album with no filler every song has a meaning.

Exit 2Pac, Enter Makaveli....Subtle notes in the inside cover of the album that many consider to be Tupac Shakur's most controversial record. Pac had originally planned this record to be his rebirth. The rebirth of a general out to expose the fakers in the hip-hop game. Fate changed his plans, however, instead the 7 Day Theory became the first posthumous album released from Shakur only a month after his death. An eerie album at that. A shocking cover of a crucified Shakur alone added fuel to rumors of him faking his own death. Double-meanings in verses also had many fans shaking their heads. The album itself included vicious disses to some of the East Coast's finest (Nas, Mobb Deep, Puffy, Jay-Z and Biggie Smalls) on "Bomb First" and "Against All Odds." East Coast heads, however, weren't the only recipients of the Death Row assault. Suge Knight's influence was apparent on the track "Toss It Up" where Makaveli tore apart Dr. Dre on an extremely personal level going as far as to question his manhood. Disses aside, some of Pac's greatest moments can be found on this record. Take the virtually flawless "Hail Mary" or the Left Coast anthem "To Live and Die in LA". Pac doesn't falter on the introspective side either with heart-felt moments including "White Manz World" and "Hold Ya Head". And to those back-packing naysayers who complained about the minimal use of methaphors in Pac's verses, please skip to "Me and My Girlfriend" and witness a song-long metaphor about the passion between a man and his 9mm. Truth is that Makaveli was about emotions and not similes. Take the soul-wrenching "Krazy" where Makaveli declares "Blame me for the outcome, playing my records. Check this. Don't have to bump this but please respect this." That's his stance on this record, love him or hate him. You have to respect Makaveli's place in rap history whether "breathin' or dead."
