Overview

Tupac Shakur embodied the contradictions, lunacy, poignancy, and tragedy of gangsta life better than any other figure in hip-hop history. This is his most articulate rumination on '90s thug life, from the wistfully uplifting "Dear Mama" to the brutally nihilistic "If I Die 2Night" and "Fuck the World". 2Pac (as he called himself professionally) rapped in a rushed, urgent style, and he favored musical backdrops with heavy bass lines and loud accents. With a sure sense of rap's history, his "Old School" is a tribute to hip-hop's founders and a touching reminiscence that recalls a simpler time. Still, always controversial -- and self-contradicting -- 'Pac delivers an astonishing balance between levelheaded essays on the evils of ghetto violence ("So Many Tears") and explicit endorsements of violence ("Death Around the Corner"). In a horrifically tragic turn that seemed scripted by his own lyrics, Tupac was killed in a still-unsolved 1996 drive-by shooting, leaving scores of recordings to exemplify what would have been his continued ascendance.
