    2Pac Released His Makaveli Album 20 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 20 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…

    Happy Birthday 2Pac: 2Pac B-Day Mix Vol. 5

    June the 16th, 1971 mama gave birth to hell raising, heavenly son. Today would have been the 45th birthday of the late, great Tupac Shakur, whom I’ve always said he’s my favorite artists of all-time. You know it’s pretty crazy to think he’s been gone almost 20 years, but with artists like Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole, his legacy still carries on. For the past few years I’ve put together birthday tributes and this will be the 5th year of me doing this. When you get time, go back and download 2Pac B-Day Mix Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3, and Volume 4 and give me some feedback on them.…

    Throwback Thursday: Jon B The Cool Relax Album

    I’ll admit, I was and still a huge fan of Jon B!! A few days ago I was browsing my site and I noticed that I haven’t showed any love on the music side of things lately. One of the main reasons my blog got noticed was my love for music being shown throughout the site. From this point on I’ll be posting for either Music Monday, Throwback Thursday, both or Mixtape Friday. This time I’m going to do things a little bit differently though because I’ll be posting albums that I’m either listening to or have listened to during that week. So from now on you should expect at…

    2Pac- Baby Don’t Cry(Keep Ya Head Up II)

    It’s hard to believe that yesterday marked 19 years that the late, great 2Pac passed away. I don’t know if it’s hard to believe because of me idolizing him or because even though he’s been gone that long, he’s still talked about all the time. Since I visit several hip hop forums, there’s always 2Pac threads or people are quick to bring him into their conversations and alot of it is hatred, which I don’t understand. On September 13, 1996 I’ll never forget that day because I was at a high school football game when it was announced he passed on the PA system and people were crying and going…

    Today would mark the 43th birthday of the late, great Tupac Shakur aka Makaveli. Man this is hard to believe that it’s been almost 18 years since he died and it seems like yesterday when I was following his every move and he meant the world to me. This is the 3rd year I’m doing the Birthday Mix and if you would like to download those other 2 compilations you can download Volume 1 and Volume 2. There’s nothing I can really say that I haven’t said before on Volume 1 or 2 that I can say now but Happy Birthday Pac and Rest In Peace. You’re still my favorite…
