The 100 Best 2Pac Songs

30. 2Pac f/ George Clinton "Can't C Me” (1996)

Producer: Dr. Dre
Album: All Eyez On Me
Label: Death Row/Interscope


A full on P-funk re-up with the godfather of the westside, George Clinton. Dr. Dre does his best to recreate the Parliament Funkadelic sound with exacting detail. Pac actually seems slightly out of sync with the entire vibe. Clinton's chanting on the hook seems to speak in more mystical terms—as in “I'm so high-frequency most can't comprehend what I'm laying down.” Meanwhile Pac concerns himself with more earthly matters, using this funscape of sound to once again go rabid on his enemies.

This is one of the rare occasions when Pac misses an opportunity by going nuclear on a record that wants to rise above the bullshit. Clinton, by the end, seems to distance himself from this crazy nigga on the track. “See no evil," he improvises. “Hear no evil, speak no evil.” Was the Lord of Funk chin-checking Pac on his own record? Whoowee.
