Dave Aron: That’s the first song I ever did with 2pac. The day he got out of jail, he didn’t go tothe clubs. He didn’t go try to meet women. He went straight to the studio like he was on a mission, and he recorded “Ambitionz Az A Ridah” and “I Ain’t Mad At Cha” 2pac came in and he was fresh out of jail. I seen them give him his Death Row Medallion that same night. And then he came right in. He was ready to go. He was very hyped, very focused, a lot of energy-mad energy. And you could tell he was really one a mission. He really had a real vision of what was going on, and he wanted to get a lot done in that short amount of time.
