Welcome to another Thursday, which means we are closer to the weekend. My playlist had a little bit of everything as always. We had some new flavor from Don Tolliver and Moneybagg Yo, plus a couple of personal mixes I’ve made. Tela’s Piece of Mind, LL Cool J and his Mr. Smith joint and Coolio’s Gangstas Paradise was also played. Cash Money records was represented with the No Ceilings joint from Wayne and Birdman’s debut solo album. With tomorrow being the 25th anniversary of Tela’s Piece of Mind and 2Pac’s Makaveli album it came down to those two. We all know I’m a huge Pac fan, so we are going with the Makaveli joint. As we all know, Makaveli was released less than two months after Pac passed away. Hail Mary has already been featured on Throwback Thursday in the past.
The Makaveli album is something Pac talked about for a few months before it finally dropped. The project sold well over 4 million copies and has been mentioned on several lists for greatest album of all-time. I’ve always said it’s a toss-up between this one and the Me Against the World one as my GOAT album. The featured Throwback Thursday track is one of my favorite on the album and it’s called Hold Ya Head. This is a dope track, and the final verse is one of my favorites from Pac. Check out the track for Hold Ya Hold up above. Peep the track listing and stream links below for the Makaveli album.
