4. 2Pac f/ Shock G & Money-B "I Get Around" (1993)
Producer: The D-Flow Production Squad Album: Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z. Label: Amaru/TNTInterscope
Pac was always 'bout that life. His first big hit finds the post-Digital Underground MC still fully under the Bay Area's sway. The lyrics, of course, run along an ongoing theme in Pac's work: Baggin' bitches. Or, as they say in civilized circles, seducing the honeys. It seems he was competent at such matters as confirmed by the recent release of a sex tape with everyone's favorite hedonist Money B. This early summer joint gives us the Tupac everybody got along with. A few years later, a rape accusation would dramatically alter the trajectory of his life and career in ways he could never imagine.
