The 100 Best 2Pac Songs

49. 2Pac f/ Outlawz "Hell 4 A Hustler" (1999)

Producer: Damon Thomas
Album: Still I Rise
Label: Amaru/Death Row/Interscope Records


Some of Pac's posthumous material suffers from sounding dated, or worse, overproduced in an attempt to compensate. But this single from the Outlaws captures Pac during the wild-eyed days right before his death. His rhymes are not as polished as they are on Killuminati, but riveting all the same. Still, by the time this was released we had heard it all before—only better. The Outlaws, however, are much improved.
