2PAC Better Dayz (Tha Row/Interscope) Rating: NN Rating: NN
It's strange how 2Pac is more prolific in death than he ever was in life. Better Dayz is yet another in a series of two-disc sets of previously unreleased tracks recorded just before his mysterious murder. Tupac celebrates the thug life, contemplates its consequences and takes a few shots at Bad Boy and Biggie Smalls. That the production sounds less dated than Snoop Dogg's new disc should add intrigue for conspiracy theorists. But you have to wonder how much Suge Knight will invest in promoting the release, knowing that whatever co-executive producer Afeni Shakur earns from it will go toward nailing her son's killers.
