Producer: QDIII Album: R U Still Down? Label: Amaru/BMG/Jive Records
Pac's ability to convey pure emotion on the mic is unsurpassed, and never more so than on this early collaboration with his erstwhile friend Stretch from Live Squad. All of the basic Pac elements are there in his adrenaline-soaked verses: his outrage at every-day injustice; his deep roots in a full-blown resistance movement; his insight on the psychological implications of oppression. He's not having any of it.
