The Rapper: 2Pac
The Post-Prison Rap Release: 1996's All Eyez On Me
Did Jail Help or Hurt? HELP! 'Pac's fourth studio album was the perfect storm. It was his first on Death Rows Records. It was the last album he released while he was alive. And it featured some of the most commercially-viable songs that he put out during his lifetime. The passion, tenacity and effort he put into recording it shortly after getting out of the clink made this album an instant classic.
