    2Pac R U Still Down Released 25 Years Ago

    2Pac is still regarded by many as one of the greatest rappers of all-time. Ever since hearing him, Pac has been my GOAT and it’s still hard to believe he passed away over 26 years ago. 2Pac was taken away from us on September 13, 1996, in Las Vegas. Two months later, Death Row Records his first posthumous album The 7 Day Theory under Makaveli. The following year, his second posthumous joint was released. R U Still Down was the name of the album and it was released 25 years ago today. R U Still Down marked his 6th album and his second double album. The album was the first…

    2Pac Released His Debut Album 30 Years Ago Today

    Man time sure does fly by really fast, doesn’t it? We’ve celebrated the 25 year anniversary of Pac’s passing a couple of months ago. It’s hard to believe he dropped 2Pacalypse Now 30 years ago. To give you a broader view, he was recording this revolutionary album when he was 19-years-old. To put that in proper contents, listen to the rappers nowadays that’s in their late teens and early-20s, see the difference? I’m sure if you follow everything on my site, on Instagram, Twitter or know me personally, 2Pac is my all-time favorite. I mean you know it because I say it in all of my stuff. I’ll share a…

    2Pac Released His Makaveli Album 25 Years Ago Today

    What can I say about 2Pac that I haven’t said before; he’s the greatest musician of all-time to me. Despite his passing over 25 years ago, he’s still my biggest idol next to my father. For me, he wasn’t just another rapper or entertainer, but someone that was speaking for me. Like Pac, I’m very outspoken, especially when it comes to social issues or being the voice for people who’s scared to say something. Seeing he passed away on September 13, 1996 I didn’t think he would put out any more music, but I was wrong. Less than two months after he passed, his classic Makaveli album was released. For…

    2Pac Until the End of Time Turns 20 Years Old Today

    It’s hard to believe that on September 13th of this year will mark the 25th anniversary of Pac passing. Before his passing, Pac released 4 solo albums, Thug Life and countless appearances. One thing you hear about Pac after his passing was his crazy work ethic. More music came about from Pac after death then he released while alive. One of those gems was his album, Until the End of Time. The double album was his seventh total and third posthumous release. Makaveli was the first and R U Still Down? (Remember Me) was the second.

    Today Marks 25th Anniversary of All Eyez on Me by 2Pac

    If anyone is familiar with my website or follow me on Instagram or Twitter, then you know how much I love music and how much I’ve idolized 2Pac. On February 13, 1996 just a few months after he was released from prison, Pac dropped his monumental, double album All Eyez on Me. Everyone was anticipating the new album after he released his classic, Me Against the World while he was in jail and everyone really wanted to know what he had to say. I remember it was my senior year of high school when the album dropped and I checked into school late because the neighborhood record shop released the…

    2Pac Changes for Throwback Thursday

    I see no changes, wake up in the morning and I ask myself, is life worth living should I blast myself. These are the opening line to 2Pac Changes, which is part of his Greatest Hits double album. 2Pac would’ve turned 49-years-old if he wasn’t murdered in Vegas on September 7th of 1996. Changes were released after his death and it’s one of his most impactful records ever. 2Pac Changes talked about racism, gun violence, mistreatment of black people by the police and the war on drugs. Does any of that sounds familiar in 2020? The track was originally recorded in 1992 and later remixed and add some of I…

With all the drama Pac was going through so much drama during this time from court cases and crazy allegations and he was only 23 years old. I remember the day this album dropped during my junior year of high school and all my friends meeting together to head to the mall to pick up this album. We rode around…

    I’ve stated many times over the years that 2Pac is my all-time favorite artists not just rapper. 15 years ago, 2Pac released his ninth album and the fifth that was dropped posthumously. For this project, Eminem wrote a letter to Afeni to let her know how influential Pac was to him. In the letter, Eminem stated that he’d be honored to produce the entire album and she obliged. The first single from the project featured Nate Dogg and it was called Thugs Get Lonely Too. The original track was recorded during the Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z and Thug Life era.

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.
