i have the aforementioned DU ep + body hat syndrome (wassup with the love features a great pac rhyme) 2pacalypse now strictly for my niggaz thug life me against the world all eyez on me
didn't get any of the makaveli ish
i guess, though, that i will admit to becoming really blase about the west coast 'g-funk' sound around the same time as 'all eyez' came out, but i don't see how it's possible to deny that Death Row and Suge Knight were ultimately TERRIBLE for him-- not just artistically speaking
let me rephrase (and possibly back-pedal a little)-- i STILL believe that Pac is overrated-- he's not the greatest emcee of all time, nor is he close. BUT he was (is?) an extremely passionate rapper
and he definitely does have some classic songs-- i just find the whole 'thug nigga ready to die' ish tiresome.. after so many times, what more is there to say?
