2 PAC (Makaveli) The 7 Day Theory (EXPLICIT) LP Vinyl Remastered Edition

Cat no. DRRLP63012

While in prison, Tupac Shakur studied the works of Makaveli, and used it as an alias for The Don Killuminati, which amounts to little more than a call to war. The 7 Day Theory, released less than two months after his death, is a slightly grisly listen. From the distinctly uneasy experience of 2Pac cussing Notorious B.I.G, Jay-Z and Nas on the intro, you are then faced with the prospect of listening to a very macabre album. Caught in the middle of the petty arguments that directly contributed to his death in 1996, 2Pac uses a mixture of conspiracy theory and threats to get his message across, there is little evidence of the persuasive charm and sheer personality you'll find on his other albums, particularly All Eyez On Me and debut 2pacalypse Now. It's not without some fine moments, "To Live" and "Die In L.A", recall some of his best work but overall this is the sound of a man who's not having fun any more. --Chris Blenkarn
