This was the album that put the late Tupac Amiri Shakur on the map. It was a highly anticipated album, being that it was his first release off the Death Row label.
Boy! Did it deliver. Not only did it seal his place in rap; it was an instant classic and literally pushed Death Row into the mainstream, as well as unleash the raw talent of Tupac to the world.
His death on September 13, 1996 will be a day mourned forever, but Tupac will never be forgotten–and the album title literally became prophetic.
