Label: Death Row, Interscope

A$AP Yams: “That album was so ill cause everything on it, he wasn’t just rapping. He was making a point, and he was making a point at somebody, and he was rapping about real shit on it. Throwing shots. That shit was like, ‘Okay, this is no longer rap.’ You got to chill now. This is that real street shit you got going on. That whole album was a letter—a very angry letter—to a lot of people. I think Johnny Jin, from Death Row Records, to me is one of the dopest producers, like that whole album sounds timeless. You can throw that whole album on at any point in time, and it’ll sound indistinguishable from what’s out at that point in time. I’ll definitely throw at up as my favorite Pac album.”
