An indispensable and definitive collection 2Pac--Greatest Hits showcases the passionate genius of the late rapper. The album's non-chronological sequence highlights the contradictory impulses that made Tupac's music so commanding. The 21 well-loved "hits" some slightly re-edited for legal reasons, are accompanied by four previously unheard songs. Of the new material, the raw-sounding "God Bless the Dead" has been the subject of the most speculation, owing to its subject matter: a eulogising of the late Notorious B.I.G.--a mysterious feat, since Tupac was killed six months before Biggie. And, making its first proper appearance on a Tupac album, the B-side "Hit 'Em Up" stands as the most intense outburst of pure venomous rage ever captured on tape. Whether he's waxing political, philosophical or just plain paranoid, Tupac's empathetic, charismatic style remains unmatched. --Charley Gothic

As much a fan as I am of the great man, I think that it's hard to justify record companies continually releasing 'new' material years after Tupac's death.
The standard has dropped, there are no doubts about it, so to remember the man best, this is the greatest single purchase rap fans can make - especially those new to Tupac Shakur.
Surely the greatest rapper ever, this double album contains almost all of his best songs to form a greatest hits album that blows away all those pretenders to his throne.
Lyrically, he's never been bettered, but it's the range of emotion in his music that really sets him apart from the rest.
Whether he be mourning the loss of a friend in 'How Long Will they Mourn Me?' or singing about his love for his Mama (old softy at heart) he conveys real feelings throughout.
This is exemplified no where better than in the closing track of disc one 'Hit em Up.' This startlingly charged rant aimed at former friend Biggie Smalls has more genuine menacing hatred in five minutes than Eminem has come up with in three albums.
All his crowd pleasing favourites are here, including 'California Love,' 'To Live and Die in LA' and the sublime 'Changes.'
Even devout Biggie and Puffy fans, if they're honest, will have to agree that this is trememndous stuff.

probably the greatest collection of tupac's finest works.the album isn't just a collection of tunes made so Suge Knight can put a bit more money into his own pocket from the "shakur estate", but it shows the times,trials and tribulations of the worlds biggest martyr.his good sides with "dear mama" and "unconditional love" and his bad-ass side with "hit'em up", probably the best tune on the rack. R.I.P. Pac, watch'ya back Suge Knight 'cos Pac is back for ya'ass !!!!

2Pac is an extraordinary rapper, but also a very versatile one. His albums range from deep (The 7 Day Theory, Better Days) to gangsta (Still I rise)
To get the best 2Pac experience, you should buy this CD first. It has a whole range of songs, so you can see which style of Pac you like best, and then go out and buy the other album that fits in with that style.
The best 5 songs on this album are:
Life Goes On
Hit em Up
Brenda's Got a Baby
Changes
All about U

Ok maybe not EXACTLY because how can you fit the best of pac on just 2 cds! This is the album that made me buy all of his albums,
i already owned all eyez on me but this album showed me pacs range and how there was no limits on his ability as an artist.
With unreleased tracks from the deathrow period and some of the best of his early work this album is a true gem, it got me hooked and ive never looked back.
Take my advice, if you dont own it, buy it.

Well What Can You Say This Just Opitimizes How Great 2Pac Is, Even Though He Is Dead He Will Still Be Talked About In 25 Years. With 25 of 2Pac's Greatest songs what more of a reason is there to buy this album. It contains all of 2Pac's biggest hits so far like "California Love", "Keep Ya Head Up", "Brenda's Got A Baby" and of course the Notorious "Hit 'Em Up". It also contains one of 2Pac's biggest songs to date "Changes". There is also an edited version of "Toss It Up" and an unreleased song called "Troublesome 96'".

2Pac's Greatest Hits is a 25 track collection of songs recorded between 1990 and Tupac Shakur's untimely death in September 1996. All the good ones are in there, all the way from his early days at Amaru Records right the way through to his title of 'biggest selling name in rap'at the infamous Death Row Records. From the balladic 'Brenda's Got A Baby','Keep Ya Head Up', and the US number 1 'Dear Mama', which express the slain rapper's more caring and sensitive sides, to the more aggressive and controversial 'Hit Em Up'(a personal tirade of abuse on Biggie Smalls, a man whom he believed had him set up for a shooting a year before he recorded the song with the Outlawz), and '2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted'(a flamboyant and cocky collaboration with fellow Death Row associate Snoop Doggy Dogg), the album shows constant lyrical brilliance and backbeat flow. Although most of these tracks are indeed the greatest hits, i feel there are a couple missing. Both the rebellious 'Holler If Ya Hear Me', and the reminiscant 'Pour Out A Little Liquor'are missing from the selection, which have made way for suspect non-released material such as 'God Bless The Dead', and 'Unconditional Love'. But minus the somewhat questionable track selection from the Amaru/Death Row production, they do have the classics. The collaborations with KC and Jojo in 'How Do You Want It'and 'Toss It Up'are superb, as are the two possibly most popular works of his, 'California Love'with Dr Dre, and 'Changes', which are all included. Perhaps another arguable addition to the double-CD compilation, is 'Heartz Of Men', a track produced by DJ Quik which to me fails to meet the standards of the other cuts on the album.Read more ›
