30. THE DON KILLUMINATI: THE 7 DAY THEORY (1996)
Artist: 2Pac (as Makaveli)
Production: Hurt-M-Badd, Makaveli, Big D
Acclaim: Tupac’s last official testament, this LP (commonly called Makaveli) is a blueprint on anger, retribution and seething angst aimed at all opposers, in music form.
Peak moment: The instantly mythical first bar of “Hail Mary” summarizes Mr. Shakur in a nutshell (“I ain’t no killer, but don’t push me/Revenge is like the sweetest joy next to gettin’ pussy”).
