Even MORE Best of Tupac Releases Coming Out Y'all * slow clap *
Look, compared to some of the wack- invincible buck coon-foolery that comes out lately as Hip-Hop music (hell, even as Gangsta Rap), I like Tupac as much as the next woman.
Hell, I can even see why him and the Notorious B.I.G. are looked at as some of the greatest MCs of all time (well, for me, in the Gangsta Rap category, they might be top 50 overall).
But how many times can folks recycle his music releases?!?
Tupac in terms of multiple recycled music releases is coming to be our Beatles - whehter that's good or bad, I still don't know yet (lots of music recorded by an artist is nice, yet was it meant for everything to be heard by the masses?).
Granted, I'm happy that this isn't one of those random a** remix albums with beats and folks you KNOW the original artist wouldn't have dealt with on top of some of the songs sounding a hot desert mess (P. Diddy, aka Puffy, aka Sean Combs aka "Will Sell Biggie Voice Snippets for Child Support Payment Installments", I see you).
Now this is information being posted up because it looks like these two CDs (* sees folks either happy as hell or throwing things at the computer monitor *) will actually be good singles compliations for folks who just want the Tupac hits and solid songs without going through albums you may not care for along with some unreleased joints (face it, it happens, even with music artists we're crazy about - sometimes the album doesn't cut it and you just like a few songs).
Here's the Tracklisting:
THE BEST OF 2PAC - PT. 1: THUG
So Many Tears
California Love - ORIGINAL MIX

TRACKLISTING SUBJECT TO CHANGE
I really can't see Anthony Hamilton messing up "Dear Mama" so the remix tracks listed don't scare me so far, especially since there are not that many of them, thank goodness.
On top of that, one of the few remixes I was feeling the Thugz Mansion single acoustic joint when it came out originally, so its cool to see that up on there.
