"Changes" was nominated for the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance.
Though posthumous albums are often only a record company's vision of how to make more money, 2PAC's GREATEST HITS is just what it promises; a collection of all his hottest tracks, chart toppers, and street jams. Tracks from his time spent on both Interscope Records and Death Row Records are included, as are three previously unreleased tracks, "Unconditional Love," "God Bless the Dead" and "Troublesome '96."
Among the numerous hits from 2PAC on this generous two-CD set are "Brenda's Got a Baby"; "Keep Your Head Up"; "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted," featuring Snoop Dogg; and "How Do You Want It," featuring K-Ci & JoJo. Among the other standouts are "I Get Around," featuring Digital Underground; "California Love," featuring Dr. Dre; and "Dear Mama." 2PAC's GREATEST HITS leaves you with the sad feeling that one of the world's greatest performers left the planet way too early.
Artist Overview
2Pac became a martyr of gangsta rap, a tragic symbol of the toll its lifestyle exacted on urban black America. In 1991, he delivered an acclaimed debut album, 2Pacalypse Now, and quickly followed with a star-making performance in Juice. Over the course of one year, his profile rose substantially, based as much on his run-ins with the law as his music. Me Against the World (1995) entered the charts at number one, while All Eyez on Me (1996), as well as its hit single "California Love," confirmed his superstar status. Even with numerous public conflicts, 2Pac's September 1996 death, the result of a drive-by shooting, came as an unexpected shock. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
