You know what time it is?! It’s time for my Throwback Track!
This week my pick is the classic west coast banger:
2pac ft. Snoop Dogg – “2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted”
Just listening to the song itself you know why it is a classic, but here are some reasons why this track will always be a Hip Hop classic:
The Track Features Two Hip Hop Legends:
Not only does the song have an amazing beat, it features two classic Hip Hop legends: 2pac & Snoop Dogg. 2Pac was the speaker of the streets and really was not afraid to discuss topics like police brutality. Snoop was laid-back and smooth and added a little extra funk to every track. In ’96, both of these controversial rappers together on one track was so big. This song still bumps because legends never die.
The music video was Scarface inspired and had some interesting parts to it. The video featured characters that resembled Puff & Biggie during a really controversial time in Hip Hop history. The video had “2 of the best from the westside” and showed Pac & Snoop having a fancy feast in-between images of cops trying to find them.
Tupac’s Last Performance:
“2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted” was so powerful then and still is now. It is rumored that the song was performed at the last known concert that Pac & Snoop played together before Pac’s death. Tupac’s hologram performed the track with Snoop at Coachella in 2012.
