Album Review

The separately packaged two-part Best of 2Pac series released in 2007 features four fewer songs than the fairly definitive double-disc Greatest Hits collection previously released in 1998, and of the 21 songs spread across two packages (less than an hour of music per disc), about a quarter are posthumous productions or remixes. For every classic like "California Love," there's a latter-day remix such as the newly produced version of "Dear Mama" on the Thug release or the "previously unreleased" song "Dopefiend's Diner" on the Life release.

Good Collection

Although there is already an album of 2Pac's greatest hits, this is a great disc too. It's good that iTunes got some more of 2Pac's music (although they should get 2Pacalypse Now, Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z., and Me Against the World) but instead of buying this it would be worth it to buy all of 2Pac's albums, especially the ones he made before his death. 2Pac will be forever a great artist and the way he channels his emotions into is music is phenomenal. RIP Tupac Amaru Shakur, 1971-1996


2pac is the greatest rapper to ever live...why did he have to die and leave us?

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...
