    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. Until the End of Time debuted number one and it sold over 426,000 copies…

    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…

    2Pac Me Against the World Dropped 25 Years Ago

    25 years ago today, Tupac Shakur dropped his classic Me Against the World album while he was incarcerated. It was his 3rd solo album after 2 really good albums 2Pacalypse Now and Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z, there was a tremendous buzz for this upcoming project when he dropped Dear Mama. 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…

    2Pac Loyal to the Game Released 15 Years Ago Today

    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. The single dropped a few days after the 8th anniversary…
