The 100 Best 2Pac Songs

65. 2Pac "Just Like Daddy" (1996)

Producer: Hurt-M-Badd
Album: The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory
Label: Death Row/Interscope


One of the few crew tracks where you don't really mind the Outlawz. E.D.I. and Kadafi hold up their end, keeping the groove going as Pac goes into seduction mode. Tupac had a intuitive sense of what women wanted to hear from a tatted-up fresh-from-prison madman like himself. “You never had a father or family/But I'll be there....” etc.

Along the way, he manages to tell a few stories about real-life street relationships. He was good at laying out the unspoken law, rhyming “Value the girl that tells you when your man tries to fuck her” and other such gems. The flute and sensual bounce make this the perfect end-of-the-night let's fuck in the car music.
