    Episode 12: Tupac "All Eyez On Me"

    Episode 12: Tupac "All Eyez On Me"

    "All Eyez On Me" was the fourth album released by Tupac Shakur and the last before his untimely death in Las Vegas on September 13th, 1996. The album was received with acclaim as it went straight to number one on The Billboard Top 200. It sold 566,000 copies in it's first week and was certified Diamond status in 2014, eighteen years after Tupac's death.







    It is rumored that Pac knocked out the first seven songs in his first night out of jail as he hit the recording studio to make up for lost time. Signed to Death Row Records for a three album deal, Pac was keen to get to work after his stint in prison and the shooting at Quad Recording Studios in New York.







    Daz Dillinger and Johnny J produced a lot of the album with Dr. Dre taking a back seat as his stint at Death Row was coming to an end. This double album was the first double album in hip-hop and is widely regarded as Tupac's best work.
