    The legendary rapper, what's his best album? I guess it will narrow down to Me Against the World and All Eyez on Me.

    All Eyez on Me

    The posthumous albums became comically bad after “Until The End of Time” which itself wasn’t that good. I think I heard a track off one of the Eminem produced albums that jacked verses from lesser known Bay Area rap albums that Pac appeared on in the early 90’s. I think it was from a track he did with Young Lay and Mac Mall or a track he did with Spice 1

    Me Against the World. He was so much better before the fake bangin' persona

    All eyes on me edges it because it's a double album, but The Don Killumanati theory is not far behind.

    All eyez on me : Pac at his peak, just out of prison and running with suge and the bloods, Pac felt invisible. You can hear it on this album. Unfortunately it was that same attitude and newfound friends that ended up having him killed.

    I prefer 2pacalypse now over All Eyez on Me. It was less Gangsta, more political. Lyrically I feel like it's a better album.

    Strictly. The only argument against it is the mix but as a whole is encapsulates the different sides of Pac best: profound, rebellious, fun.

    Me Against The World. All Eyez on Me was his most pop record, but MATW just sounds better to me.

    The thing about those albums besides most of the verses being nearly ten years old was that they were remixes at a time when rap was horrible. The originals were leaked right after he died and some of his best songs IMO were those originals.

    All Eyez On Me will always win these polls because it was his most commercial album and the affiliation with Dre and Death Row but Me Against The World is a true masterpiece
    Its so much deeper than anything else he ever wrote
    So Many Tears, Dear Mama, Can You Get Away, It AInt Easy
    Those songs are pure poetry
    I love that album and still listen to it from beginning to end pretty regularly

    Loyal To The Game took a song he made with Oakland rapper The Govenor(Po N***a Bluez), which is one of my favorite songs of all time, and ruined it by cutting out The Gov, putting it on a Scott Storch beat with Ron Isley vocals

    Comes down to 3: All Eyez on Me, Me Against the World, Makaveli

    I'll give it to AEOM. For a double album it did feature a few skippable tracks but it also had some of the best rap songs in hip hop history and production.

    Me Against the World will be the 'underrated' album that most Pac fans will go with and I don't blame them.

    I hated his Makaveli album when I first heard it in 96. It grew on me though when I heard Against All Odds

    Me against the world for sure.
    Me against the world
    Dear Mama
    Old School
    Temptations

    Embodiment of 90's rap, all classics on that album. All Eyes on Me is a close second to that.

    I voted All Eyez on Me even if it lacks the "Conscious Pac" dimension.

    Otherwise, I'd say Still I Rise. Fantastic lyrics, great music and great delivery with The Outlawz.

    And to the noobs, I'd suggest to grab the '98 Greatest Hits, masterpiece and great visuals (booklet).
    Perfectly balanced selection :
