Throughout my young career of listening to rap music, the name 2Pac is always thrown about with the likes of the Notorious B.I.G., the Wu- Tang Clan, Snoop Dogg and A Tribe Called Quest. Yet I had never bothered to check 2Pac out. The hype that I had heard about him was way to much for me to have any faith that his music would actually be worth my time to listen to.
But then I decided if I was actually going to learn the full story about rap, I would need to learn about 2Pac. So I started listening to his “best” album, All Eyez On Me. And I was impressed. All the beats immediately get you head bobbing up and down and you definitely can tell that Dr. Dre’s influences have been here and done their work. His flow is average but the beats are where it really is at, and I now regret I didn’t give 2Pac a chance earlier.
