Today in 1993 2Pac Released His Second Album

Today in 1993, 2Pac (Tupac Shakur) released his second album “Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z” which saw him elaborate more on his political views and his rightfully placed mistrust in the justice, legal and law enforcement systems that are in place here in the United States. 

Prior to the entire coastal beef situation that the media did nothing to help, 2Pac was releasing a steady stream of socially conscious music that made many a listener take notice as to what was really happening in the streets. Unfortunately he was gunned down a few years later before he could get back to making albums of this nature. 

Don’t let the title fool you, this album paid homage to old school rappers from both coasts as well as had anthems such as “Keep Ya Head Up” the ultimate ode to single mothers as well as “I Get Around” which needs no further explaining. RIP
