Album Review

More than three years after his death, it's difficult to believe there's still unreleased 2Pac material out there, much less quality material. After no less than three posthumous albums built around what 2Pac produced when he was still alive (plus an assortment of bootlegs making the rounds), the well apparently still hasn't run dry, and Still I Rise is the inevitable result. As on the Notorious B.I.G. album released just weeks before though, there are some pretty wide gaps on Still I Rise between rhymes actually delivered by 2Pac. There's also an undeniable — some would say obvious — impression that this album just doesn't bear the mark of 2Pac himself.

Making up the difference in both categories is Outlawz, a quartet of rappers keeping the flow going between 2Pac fragments. As with 2Pac's other posthumous releases, Still I Rise comes with four or five solid tracks that may have survived the cuts on a real 2Pac album. The title track and "Letter to the President" are obvious winners, still reliant on the syrupy G-funk that 2Pac made famous, and (thankfully) not influenced by the increasing late-'90s insurgence of muzaky hip-hop productions. And "Baby Don't Cry (Keep Ya Head Up II)" — 2Pac's self-produced follow-up to 1993's "Keep Ya Head Up" — is a surprisingly touching message track. For any of 2Pac's fans, it'll be so good to hear his voice again on new material that the cash-in nature of Still I Rise can easily be overlooked. It's just not the album 2Pac would have produced had he still been alive.

Customer Reviews

Excellent!

Not the best but top 5 without a shadow of a doubt 2Pac was is and always ill be the greatest!

Dont buy this!

This album remixed by outlawz and that ain't cool. The original were never released although about 3 of the songs have modified for completion. These are the list: Letter to the President - Without the intro from E.D.I. Still I Rise - Original Version which had Hussein Fatal Secretz of War - Had that West Coast beat Black Jesuz - Original Version which had Storm Hell 4 a Hustler - 6 min track in original beat High Speed - Original quality Teardrops and Closed Casket - This is the only best track and better than the original Tattoo Tears - Original beat U Can Be Touched - Original version which had 2Pac verse at the beginin without Kadafi. And the rest (the tracks that I have not mentioned) have been remixed with the lyrics and edited on different beat except the last track which is done by only Outlawz. DON'T BOTHER!

Biography

Born: 16 June 1971 in Brooklyn, NY

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s

2Pac became the unlikely martyr of gangsta rap, and a tragic symbol of the toll its lifestyle exacted on urban black America. At the outset of his career, it didn't appear that he would emerge as one of the definitive rappers of the '90s -- he started out as a second-string rapper and dancer for Digital Underground, joining only after they had already landed their biggest hit. But in 1991, he delivered an acclaimed debut album, 2Pacalypse Now, and quickly followed with a star-making performance in...
