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.
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.
