    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…

Let’s say that this album didn’t disappoint at all and if anything, it exceeded my expectations. The album featured Crime Boss, Mr. Mike, 8Ball & MJG and a few others. Despite not…
