The 100 Best 2Pac Songs

18. 2Pac f/ Big Syke "All Eyez on Me” (1996)

Producer: Johnny "J"
Album: All Eyez On Me
Label: Death Row/Interscope


Pac murked this something awful. After all, it was the title track for his mammoth double album and the bounce was everything he needed it to be. The late Johnny J is still unheralded for his genius work on Pac's discography. loop from Linda Clifford's “Never Gonna Stop” created subtle sonic drama while leaving enough space to lay out his mythology. (Nas would be given the same sample for his "Street Dreams" single by Trackmasters, which we suspect was part of the reason why Nas became a target on the Makaveli album.) With Johnny J, Pac was liberated to be all the many personas that resided in his restless soul. Big Syke appears and empathizes.
