#20. 2Pac, Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z. (1993)

Label: Atlantic/Interscope

Game: “I can’t remember how old I was when ‘Brenda’s Got A Baby’ came out but I was young. I was only hearing them shits in the garage with my pops when he’d be washing the car or something like that. This was the first 2Pac album I ever got. I didn’t even know him, I just knew that was the dude from Juice. I thought his name was fucking Bishop.

“That shit was hard and when I listened to it I thought I was hard as shit too. I felt like I could beat anybody up, like I could walk through any hood with red on. That was my album.

“I had it on tape. I think I stole it. Nobody had money back then so everybody stole shit. If it had a little bit of dust on the case, that meant they hadn’t listened to it in a while so it was okay to steal.”
