Label: Death Row/Interscope

For his final (real) album Pac finally reached the pinnacle of his persecution complex and had himself nailed to a cross. Make no mistake, though—he means no disrespect to Jesus Christ, as a very serious disclaimer on the cover specifies. (Of course, Bay Rap heads know that Dre Dog, a.k.a. Andre Nickatina, was rocking the crucifixion cover with The New Jim Jones some four years prior, but impact is what matters.)
