    Listen to My Top 5 Albums from 2Pac

    2Pac is my favorite rapper, artist, musician or whatever you want to call it. Growing up my friends knew I was the smart one and was really into Black History at an early age. They discovered 2Pac before I did and told me to listen to his 2Pacalypse Now album. From then on, 2Pac was my favorite rapper and that haven’t changed 25+ years later. Since Music Monday have been nonexistent, we’re going to do things a little different. Every Monday I’ll do something with my favorite artists and their top albums. Of course, I’ll start things off with my top 5 albums from 2Pac. Me Against the World For…

    2Pac Greatest Hits Dropped 20 Years Ago

    The Makaveli album dropped a couple months after 2Pac passed away. The following year, 2Pac’s estate released the R U Still Down? album that was filled with original tracks. Next year, which was 20 years ago they released 2Pac Greatest Hits. The double album featured some of the best music from 2Pac, but they added four previously unreleased songs. Changes would be released about five weeks before the album would drop, and this is the Pac I’ve admired the most. Changes addressed guns, gangs, drugs, police brutality and racism which still takes place during this age. Changes was nominated for Best Rap Solo Performance at the Grammy Awards of 2000…

    Rest in Peace 2Pac I Ain’t Mad at Cha for Throwback Thursday

    22 years ago today, 2Pac passed away at 4:03 p.m. in Las Vegas due to complications of being shot. If you’ve followed me over the years, then you know that Pac is my idol, favorite artist and the GOAT. For the last seven years on his birthday, I’ve released 2Pac B-Day Mix. With this being the 22nd anniversary of his passing, you know that he’ll be featured as my Throwback Thursday. The featured track is the video for I Ain’t Mad at Cha.

    2Pac Snoop Dogg Wanted Dead or Alive

    By now, if you’re a fan of hip hop or music in general, you probably heard about 2Pac and Snoop Dogg. Since 2Pac passed, you have heard numerous stories about their relationship. Whether it’s how they became cool, how Snoop “allegedly” told Suge he need to bring 2Pac to Death Row or there falling out. Either way, they are two of the most iconic rappers ever and they put out beautiful music when they collaborated. 2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted comes to mind, but they’ve been on quite a few cuts together. Most of them have been heard throughout various mixtapes, but my Throwback Thursday track is probably my favorite.…

    Daddy’s Hangout Presents 2Pac B-Day Mix Volume 7

    It’s hard to believe that 2Pac would be turning 47-years-old today if he were alive. It’s even crazier that he’s been gone almost 22 years now. Despite being gone for that long, he still is very influential in today’s hip hop culture. Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole are my two favorite artists of today and they’ve always called themselves Makaveli Trained Soldiers. Kanye West has continued to praise 2Pac any chance he gets and talk about how much Pac spoke his mind. For the past six years, I’ve celebrated 2Pac’s birthday by putting together a B-Day Mix. The compilations consist of his greatest hits, remixes or tracks that may have…

    Keep Ya Head Up for Throwback Thursday by 2Pac

    Last month, we all celebrated the 25th anniversary of 2Pac releasing his second album. Brenda’s Got A Baby caught people’s attention from his first album, 2Pacalypse Now. After that album, Pac was on top of the world as he was gearing up for his movie, Juice. If that wasn’t enough, Pac cemented his legacy even more by releasing my Throwback Thursday track. Keep Ya Head Up was a track that my grandmothers loved and that says a lot. This is one of my favorite tracks, not only from Pac, but one of my all-time favorite tracks. Keep Ya Head Up has earned classic marks from many people since it was…
