50. 2Pac f/ Anthony Hamilton "Thugz Mansion" / 2Pac f/ Nas and J. Phoenix "Thugz Mansion (Acoustic Version)" (2002)
Producer: Johnny "J" Album: Better Dayz Label: Amaru/Death Row
Still mourning the death of his own mother, Nasir drops a reverent verse over this wistful guitar riff. Pac, for his part, returns to a favorite theme: gangster paradise. He was deeply concerned that there be a heavenly place reserved for good-hearted criminals who committed sins due to circumstances beyond their control—and where the metal detectors are platinum and gold.
