Still I Rise
Still I Rise was a joint effort between Tupac
and his Outlaw desciples. It allowed the
Outlawz to fulfill their one-album deal with
Death Row so that they could go elsewhere,
and there was no doubt this was primarily an
Outlaw release. Anyone expecting a solo Tupac
release was surprised, as he only offered up
about 20% of the lyrical content. But of
course, Tupac material is Tupac material:
brilliant and powerful, and that can't be
ignored, even though his voice is too scarce.
While Death Row and Amaru's names and logos
were not included, it is another Row/Amaru
project. Maybe because of lack of promotion,
or maybe because it wasn't solo Pac, this
album didn't sell the way Tupac albums
usually do. It definitely wasn't due to lack
of quality, because this is good stuff.
Hopefully future releases will recapture the
huge fan base that is out there.
