Product Description

Product Description

2CD Previously Released Songs From The Makiaveli Period

Amazon.co.uk

Better Dayz appears six years after 2pac's death. During that time his estate has released a dizzying array of questionable posthumous material--with much more to come in 2003, by the way. (The liner notes list documentary soundtracks, another unreleased double album, DVDs etc.)

On the first disc's "Intro" an unnamed street reporter wonders "Where are these songs coming from?" After repeated listens, your best guess would be from his unfinished studio outtake reels. Nevertheless, these tracks were apparently recorded during his prolific and vexed Makaveli stage. "When We Ride on Our Enemies" demonstrates much vitriol, as Pac's verses are littered with fightin' words for rappers like Mobb Deep and Da Brat. Likewise, "F*** Em All" hurls threats to the late Notorious B.I.G., reminding fans of the time when media-induced East Coast/West Coast feuds were way out of control.

The ghetto Elvis's tales of slum grandeur reach their zenith when he serves up his explicit boasts to women on "Fair Exchange". Gripping. It's too bad the last track on disc one, an acoustic version of "Thugz Mansion", undermines much of the credibility of this project. When the vocals of Pac's alleged enemy Nas are mixed in to appear like he's sitting next to Pac by a fireplace, all warm and toasty and sharing rhymes, you immediately smell the influence of executive producer Suge Knight.

The second disc is just as dodgy, but might resonate more with new fans simply wanting to hear good beats and rhymes. "Never Call U B**** Again" is a tidy love song that R&B crooner Tyrese complements well, while the title track guesting Ronald "Mr. Biggs" Isley provides a necessary escape from much of Pac's brooding imagery. In the end, the quandary of this double disc has nothing to with Pac but with the middling G-funk-lite beats of producer Johnny "J" and the involvement of Suge Knight. This one's for collectors and curious onlookers. --Dalton Higgins

Format: Audio CD
if you look at this album in comparison to pacs other material for instance Makaveli and me against the world it is not his best album by any means. But when you consider that he died 6 years ago this music sounds very fresh and lyrically songs like my block and street fame are up there with his best and in fact the best in hop hop both then and now. Some of the songs that have been relaid on new beats are helped but others would have been better left alone.
there are plenty of clues for the alive theorists but I worry that they are intentionally doing this to make us keep him alive. When things are said by pac himself however you have to wonder...
Again the most remarkable thing is that it is a double album of material even though it is only 20 songs in total these are supposed to be the worst pac tracks and maybe ones he never intended releasing. You can't help but be blinded by the sheer scope talent and drive of this man.
When you also consider that JayZ has just brought out an album recorded in this year thats isn't as fresh and comprehenive as this. JayZ struggled to maintain over 20 tracks which tupacs 'worst' does with ease.
a great listen for fans and new believers!

all of this rappers music is epic. in my mind, he is the image of rap/hiphop music. This album features many of his greatest records... in fact, idont know why they made the greatest hits album when they already hadthis, but anyway....well worth buying. you might find that you can findthis album cheaper elsewheres, but its still well worth the cost fromamazon. every single record that was made by 2pac is worth buying. thelyrics, the music.... iv never come across an artist that can make musiclike this man could.

The Better Dayz album is all good, another decent set of songs that will please most fans and bring on board new listeners. We here Tupac in mellow mood on this album, with songs like mama just a little girl, thugz mansion, and the title track Better Dayz - PAC always grabs your attention when he delivers his raps slow, and the issues he discusses are very relevant. The battle songs are tough as expected, PAC spitting lyrics so fast and furious, you just want to get out of his way and let him rip it up! Listen out for "still balin" devasting. In closing I would recommend the Album, over a lot of tittles out there, but don't take my word for it, go and get it, its a gem.

There are three things you can be certain of in life. Taxes, death, and with each year a new album from slain rapper Tupac Shakur. This new release now means that Tupac has had more posthumous LP's than albums released whilst he was actually alive. However after 2001's messy Until The End Of Time, we now get a decent collection of more of his unreleased tracks from the vaults.
First things first. This album is still plagued by the various shortcomings that have dogged many of Shakur's posthumous LP's. Things such as beats being changed from their original bootleg versions, songs being watered down and sub-par guest rappers that aren't even in the same galaxy as Shakur as an emcee...these things are all present once again, although not as much as on previous occasions.
The best thing about this double-disc set is that we get to see all sides of 2Pac courtesy of a nice mix of tracks. There's the cuts that you can blast in your system (Still Ballin, Watcha Gonna Do), the deep, introspective songs that 2Pac had down to a fine art (Mama's Just A Lil Girl, the title track), and of course the tales of freaky bedroom antics (Fair Xchange). It's also great to see Late Night and Who Do U Believe In included on the album after only being available previously through shoddy compilations from Death Row Records. Late Night sees DJ Quik lace a superb Donald Byrd sample for Pac to ride, his delivery flawless, with great contributions from the two better members of Shakur's Outlawz crew - the late Yaki Kadafi and the heavily underrated Hussain Fatal. Who Do U Believe In, again featuring Kadafi, is a breathtaking look into Tupac's own ideas on religion. Both songs are among the album's best.

Not 2pacs best ever but it would not be expected as this is originally material which didnt make the cut to earlier LP's such as all eyez on me and The 7 day theory. However saying that this still beats all competition hands down showing 2pac's true talent for song writing and delivery.
All songs have been remixed and remastered to give a 2002 feel with a great mix of R n B, traditional hip hop and chilled acoustic beats (as heard on me and my girlfriend).
This LP however is in danger of betraying what tupac stood for and becoming another sellout. This is seen with Nas , 2pac's sworn public enemy appearing on Thugz Mansion. It is rumoured that Nas and Pac were friends underneath the public persona, however Nas is put in the shade by Pac on this track. This underlines how unique 2pac was , as Nas is one of the best emcees around now, yet never comes close to replicating the passion that 2pac had.
Not his greatest album, yet in comparision to others this year it is definatley in the top two perhaps just behind the eminem show. This echoes the fact that 2pacs legend will never die and shows that he is not just one of the greatest rap artsist that ever lived , but also one of the most infulencial people that ever lived; infulencing a generation to rise up against opression in society.
