Two New Best of 2Pac CDs Dropping on December 4

On December 4, Amaru Entertainment and Interscope Records will release two new, separate Tupac compilations, The Best of 2Pac Part 1: Thug and The Best of 2Pac Part 2: Life. Assembled with the assistance of Pac’s mother and executive producer, Afeni Shakur, each CD will contain one previously unreleased track, one new remix and nine classic ‘Pac tracks. Part 1 will include the unreleased track “Resist the Temptation,” and a new mix of “Dear Mama” with Anthony Hamilton. Part 2 features the song “Dopefiend’s Diner,” which utilized a vocal sample from Suzanne Vega’s “Tom’s Diner,” as well as an acoustic remix of “Thugz Mansion” featuring all three of ‘Pac’s verses. A portion of the profits from both CDs will be donated to the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation.

  • AZ40

    He gotta do something lil wayne gonna catch him (the amount of material released, not in greatness!!)

    • Jerry

      to AZ40, 1st of all wayne can never catch up with pac. wayne will have to do 16 albums after his death and 6 albums when he’s alive.that’s how hardworking pac was, and he’s still has 3 to 5 more albums coming out cuz he’s has about 100 unreleased material left. pac did 5 to 6 songs a day in his final year cuz he knew he was going to die. so add 365 days times 6, you do the math.

  • sATaLyte

    Jeeeeezuuss!!

    Can we get them to stop releasing then re-releasing this shitty material!

  • Makaveli

    Why, Why, Why…

    Would you choose an almost identical track listing to the original greatest hits when there is such a vast library of quality material to choose from?!?

    7 Day Theory – Krazy
    7 Day Theory – Me and my girlfriend
    R U Still Down – R U Still Down (Remember Me)
    R U Still Down – Lie To Kick It
    All Eyez On Me – Ratha Be Ya Nigga
    All Eyez On Me – All Eyez On Me
    Me Against The World – Me Against The World
    Me Against The World – Temptations
    Me Against The World – If I Die 2Nite

    And the list goes on… and on…

  • Makaveli

    I forgot one of the best Tupac songs since he passed, atleast one of the best produced!

    Pac’s Life – Dumpin

  • jbean

    first off –> pac’s dead. his music = dead. quit putting 2pac shit out. we done heard his shit 10 years ago. we got new rap out. I’ma live B I G til i D I E

    • http://www.myspace.com/sadsmilez1 INDOE

      How you gonna say Tupac is ten years old then turn around and say “B I G Till i Die” ? Remember the so called “East vs. West” beef ? That was Pac’ and Big you dumb fuck they were makin music at the same time .

    • BLACK

    plus he’ll start getting crazy radio play more then ja raul…

    WEST COAST STAND!!!
    WE BACK ON!!!!

  • My Effin’ Opinion

    1.) Is anyone still buying these compilations of his previous work?

    2.) Could they be profiting more money that it cost them to package and release this stuff considering that CD sales are down in general?

    3.) Are there anymore ‘real’ ‘Pac fans out there (that would spend money on him) that doesn’t already own a CD with all these songs on it (that they could burn their own personalized compilation)?

  • Henzo Matsala

    Pac’s Mom need 2b da one enjoing his son’s hard work and efforts, not sick ass niggaz like Suge.
    That nigga is fucked up for real.
    Pac is the future where ever he is

  • bkblaze

    fucking bitch ass punks still trying to make cake of his legacy, true 2pac followers already have all his classic work from a while back, so this shit is pointless and im deff not supporting it.

  • Tha Ace

    personally i’m a huge pac fan but u won’t catch me coppin this one

  • jg420

    Why is there a remix of straight ballin by NITTY? That alone will make me not buy it, I want Pacs hits not his remixes by sub par producers

    • PAKAVELI

      LOL their not remixing still ballin. NITTY is the one who produce this song on until da end of time album

  • Doobie

    This is a REALLY bad idea. I’m sure Pac’s back catalog sells well enough where his family doesn’t really need to do this. The only song that I haven’t heard is “Dopefiend’s Diner”, and I damn sure won’t be kickin’ out 20 some odd dollars just to get one song (that I’ll be able to find on the Internet for free anyway).

  • http://WWW.GRINDFAMILY.COM EASY JEZUS

    PAC IS THE G.O.A.T

    BUT THEY WILL RUIN HIS LEGACY IF THEY KEEP UP WITH THIS

    STILL NO RAPPER HAS MORE COMBINED RECORD SALES THAN HIM.

    BREATHIN OR DEAD

  • Mayor of the D

    Why would I buy 2pac shit when I can just download a torrent or download off of limewire. Fuck there lame ass comps!!!!

  • mega_tron_201

    At first I thought “not again!!” “not another 2pac cd”..BUT after rethinking it…..looks like his mother is trying to be the one gettin paid of her sons music instead of the greedy POS’s (suge knight) who used and didnt give a fck about 2pac and thats why hes not ehre today..R.I.P. 2pac……..ALSO a portion of the sales will be donated to the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation….which is a great look imo………..it was also cool how his mother actually seperated his music into two disks .”thug” and “life”……the thug cd is when your into a wild out crazy mood and can blast the entire cd ………….and the life cd is about real life situations which imo 2pac was the best at (brenda got a baby, keep your head up, dear momma etc.) this is what actually seperates him from the rest of the great rappers……..this is why he will always be the greatest and cant be compared to biggie, nas, or jay-z……..after 2pac….now everyone wanted to make a “dear momma” song or “dear poppa” cmon….get your own topics and be original……….anyho0t….also…I think these cds will sell more than some other wack music thats out now………its classic songs for a good cause…..suge knight shouldnt be eatin 2pacs work…his mom should imo…..and also…….2pac cds always make a good xmas gift if you dont know what to get someone…its cheap and easy to get ………. ^5 Afeni Shakur…keep doin your thing lil lady >=D

  • P

    ….Whoa….i agree with pretty much everyone, if there going to drop a pac album have the unreleased shit we havent heard, re-master it but dont put his vocals on mediocore beats and collabos that just dont make sense, if he wanted this shit released he damn sure as hell would want it “the way he wanted it” (thus the few volumes out there that are originals), also, i aint tryna knock afeni but all tha money is goin into the center of tha arts in atlanta (most) to offer kids a place to go…..who??? kids in georgia?? what about tha rest of tha nation, i honestly think pac would want this money used in communities throughout tha U.S, why not? it would have built he stature 10 million times bigger than what it is, he’d be known as The Real black jesus, not just this shit people be talkin, dude did alot but people moochin off his shit……RELEASE ORIGINAL MATERIAL FUCK REMAKES!!!!

    when we ride on our enemies the original is proof of a great track that kills the remake

    -P

  • gnixs

    Dear Mrs.Shakur,
    PLEASE STOP FUCKING UP PACS ORIGINAL HITS! CAN YOU PLEASE START RELEASING THE ORIGINAL MATERIAL AND NOT THESE POP-ISH REMIXeS WITH BITCH-ASS ARTISTS THAT MOCK TUPAC (50,G-UNIT, PRETTY MUCH ALL GANGSTER RAPPERS)!!

    Anyway, does anybody know how to get the original versions of “Hellraiser”,”Tattoo Tears”,”R U Still Down”, and “Play Your Cards Right”??

  • young money

    I tired of them sticking a few good tracks in with some wack ones. I wish they would come out with one big as box set. I’d 200 for that.

  • http://Jontay.com jon-tay

    I feel ya they have released alot shit since pac death but still it is Pac and he the greatest. If you really think about it 5 years ago the he had sold over 50 million records worldwide so why would you blame his mama for still bringing out his music.

  • Chris S

    STOP RELEASING 2PAC CD’S! NOW!

    I’m a big 2pac fan but I think another release of material we’ve all heard before is a bit much. Sir Wil of myspace.com/wilpowermusicproductions

  • crooklyn rebelz

    Yo I ain’t down with the new Pac’ cd every damn year with “collaborations”. But at least Afeni getz tha money and its going to a good cause in the foundation. Not saying Ima cop it but if I do it’ll be for just support n not to hear a new Pac album cuz quite frankly I got every song tha homie put out. Eventually Ima also hear tha 2 new tracks. By tha Thug Life Immortal 4 all u bitchazz niggaz!

  • CULLI

    R.I.P. PAC

  • 50 cal.

    PAC’S LEGACY IS BEING TARNISHED. These lame muthafukkaz out now that call themselves GANGSTAS are fukkin the game over. ALL OF THEM BITCHES. They selling an image to people that don’t live the life and can’t tell they fakin. PAC WAS REAL and he EXPOSED FAKE NIGGAZ. They same one’s that ya’ll call gods n shit. His momma needs to keep them niggaz off his shit. I LOVE PAC, BUT I AINT FUKKIN WIT THAT NEW SHIT.

  • Mr.Defrosted

    unheard Tupac record produced by the camp.

  • williams

    since the death of tupac people have come and gone nobody has ever really come close to tupac for the amount of work he did in just 25 years,

    if people could put aside all the issues who owns which material and release a cd with all his great hits you could put at least 35 songs on it if were talkin commercial hits,

    its good that his music lives on because its what he wanted, and in reply to ya’ll sayin theres new artists they would all be ridin his dick if he were here today

  • Em

    Eminem has more total record sells than Pac EASY JEZUS. Not saying hes better just saying he has more sells

  • Q! tha Great!

    2Pac’s legacy is set and can’t be broken. I’m a diehard to the bone 2Pac fan. but going to buy two volumes of already classic songs that I already have?! c’mon Afeni!My loyalty has gone far, I’ve coped every single official 2Pac release to date, but I won’t be buying these cd’s. this is a bad judgement call. and where is the promotion for these cd’s? this is the first time I heard of this!for years now the fans have been saying the same thing: put out the unreleased material in it’s original form! period! or get good producers to remix it (Kanye, Just Blaze, Scott Storch, Neptunes, Timbaland, Cool & Dre!) I’m sure they wouldn’t deny the chance. otherwise don’t have any high expectations in sales.

  • troublesome508

    yo I rather listen to old pac and b.i.g. than the silly shit motherfuckers put out now.

  • I am VA

    any true pac fan wouldn’t need this…unless there obsessed over this dude and I know some white boys that are…

  • watts

    pac is the g.o.a.t. but enough is enough.i’m gonna always rep pac and the whole westcoast til i can’t no more.

  • Brendizzle

    Man Ya’ll Sound Like Some Lil Bitches, 2pac’s The Greatest There Is There Was And Ever Will Be, Hes Way The Fuck Better Then Them Southern Fucks, Their Music Down That Way Sounds Like They Just Used A Fucked Up Tape Recorder And Slowed Down The Beat And Called It Chop N Screwed, Or Them Niggas Down Dat Way Have The Same Flows Like They Rippin Eachother Off, But Back To The Point Pac’s Shit After He Died Was Pretty Tight, Until The End Of Time Was Nice, Better Dayz Was Also A Good Album, And I Even Liked The Loyal To The Game Album They All Had Good Shit On Them

  • thedon

    Pac has at least a hundred more unreleased tracks. most of them are just rough drafts musically and he wanted them to be finished, not released as they were. so they do need to remix them, but even after they fuck up his stuff it is still better than most of today’s shit. so fuck off you 2pac-hating faggots. if you dont want to buy 2pac, dont.

  • Khan

    Im Going to get this for the remix and support of the legacy. But for you young, ignorant Pac haters give me three reasons why for anything you say.

    To the dumb mufucka that said em sold more albums, eat a dick nigga. Pac has sold more albums than any other rapper, period. check yo facts b4 spreadin dat bullshit. Jay-z has sold more albums than em, and i don’t even like his wack ass. Pac is the greatest rapper, GOAT.

  • Jerry Ayers

    1st of all just bcuz they’re putting new better beats on pacs original version it’s actually not a remake unless they change pacs verse.if u were a rapper and made a song that didn’t get much attention, but some producer kindly offer u a beat that’ll make a club go crazy what would u do.Besides, his identical cds are made to support (not his family,they already rich off previous pac work)his foundation that’ll help kids in trouble.but i rather burn my own fav 22 tracks of pac.if u think of about it, his original songs wouldn’t sold a quarter as much if they wouldn’t put a dope ass beat on his shit.try comparing beats from 2pacalypse to the 1st greatest hits from still i rise to pac’s life
    u be the judge

  • Jerry Ayers

    I think what Afeni should of done was make a best of 2pac posthumous album instead of a identical 2nd greatest hits. Don’t get me wrong 2pac is my fav, but i would like to here something i haven’t heard. I read he has 30 unreleased tracks left so i expect to see 2 more albums of pac. Infact 20yrs from now i hope they still be producing a pac album. His voice to me never fades.
