All Eyez on Me - 2Pac
All Eyez on Me

2Pac’s fourth studio album, All Eyez On Me, made history as the first full length double album in hip-hop, but it would also be the last album he released during his lifetime before his death on September 13, 1996. While locked up in New York, Tupac made a deal with Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight to sign a three album deal in exchange for Knight paying 2Pac’s $1.4 million bail—this double CD gave him credit for two of the three albums. Unlike 2Pac’s past socially and politically-charged albums, this album captures the rapper as unapologetically thuggish as ever with him celebrating life as a free man. He reportedly got to the studio and went straight to work within hours of arriving in Los Angeles after his release from prison in New York. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and eventually achieved Diamond status, representing sales of over 10 million albums. The album was supported by the singles “California Love” with Dr. Dre, “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted” with Snoop Dogg, “How Do U Want It” with K-Ci & JoJo, “Life Goes On,” and “I Ain’t Mad At Cha” with Danny Boy. ‘Pac spoke more about the project in an interview with VIBE.
