With all the ProTools chopping, re-editing and impossible collaborations that have been born since that fateful day in 1996, Tupac must be spinning in his grave… or angrily stirring his thug passion on some beach in Cuba.
But unlike the unacceptable G-Unit-tainted Pac’s Life, this remix album actually doesn’t feel synthetic. A list of mostly unknown producers, except the unstoppable Jake One of the Boot Camp Clik, craft a worthy soundscape for the Pac devotees to deliver surprisingly compatible verses and choruses. A fiery Kurupt, a wistful Dwele, a focused Styles P and a stoned Snoop Dogg are some of the guests in this gangsta party. The Outlawz rock remix of Hail Mary is actually quite dope, but rebuilding Got My Mind Made Up is crazy. This disc is one of the better (possibly) posthumous Tupac creations, but does Suge get paid off this? Please, no. All profits to Afeni Shakur only.
