2Pacalypse Now (Explicit)
Released: Nov 1991
2Pacalypse Now sounds like a kid busting off his first Uzi: It's thrilling, erratic and a bit dangerous. Digital Underground member 2Pac spends much of his debut railing against crooked cops ("Violent") and imagining himself leading a futile prison break ("Soulja's Story"). The music, produced by DU's the Underground Railroad, is noisy and chaotic, and some tracks like the melodramatic "Brenda's Got a Baby" sound a bit dated. Highlights include "Trapped" and "If My Homie Calls," while "Part Time Mutha" addresses 2Pac's mother and former Black Panther activist Afeni Shakur.
