Review :

”All Eyez On Me” is one of the most influential hip-hop albums of all time. This CD was dropped by a new 2Pac, fresh out of jail on bail with Death Row records. 2Pac hit the studios literally hours after being released and this CD is said to be recorded in less than 2 weeks. This double album was 2Pac’s first (and second) of three albums obligated to Death Row Records in exchange for their support in baling him out of jail. It is arguably 2Pac’s best album, and surely his most well known.

This album was a no holds barred tribute to the thug lifestyle. There are some remnants of his old political and social messages but they are overpowered by the strong sense of anger from being jailed while the men who tried to convict him and then kill him were roaming about free.

The first of the double discs contains all of the commercial hits and the second contains the more rugged hits. There are a lot of collaborations with various artists including Thug Life, the Outlawz (2Pac’s new posse at the time) and the Death Row family. The production on this album is top-notch with the likes of DJ Quik, Johnny J, Daz Dillinger, Dr. Dre and even 2Pac himself all having a helping hand. Many rappers have tried to reproduce this album by buying hot beats and persuading other popular rappers into collaborations, but none have been able to match this album.

The songs on All Eyez on Me are, in general, unapologetic celebrations of what is called in the idiom the thug lifestyle. Though there is the occasional reminiscence about past and present friends, it is a definite move away from the social and political consciousness of 2Pacalypse Now.

The album features occasional guest spots from Shakur’s regulars, such as former-Thug Life members and The Outlawz, as well as Snoop Dogg, and other guests. Most of the album was produced by Johnny “J” and Daz Dillinger, with help from Dr. Dre on the songs “California Love” and “Can’t C Me”.

The album was certified Diamond by the RIAA on July 23, 2014.
