Tupac Shakur has multiple dedications to the opposite sex that lean toward machismo. That’s why “Temptations” stands out in his discography: The verses are so intimate that, wherever you are, the lights automatically dim. Deciding to have those off-key hood harmonies swirling in the background was a risky move, but 23 years later, it’s still an endearing aphrodisiac.
