On This Day in Hip Hop History....

The late great 2Pac released his sophomore album 20 years ago.

Although this excellent, 4 star album has two of Pac's most memorable singles, "Keep Your Head Up" and "I Get Around", in my view, it's his most underrated album. I feel it's underrated because it's rarely mentioned when the subject of Pac's discography comes up (that honor, respectively, continues to go to "Me Against The World", "All Eyez On Me", and the Makaveli album).  In addition to those two aforementioned classics, this album is home other tight joints such as the awesome opener "Holler If Ya Hear Me", the Ice Cube & Ice-T featured "Last Wordz", "Point tha Finga", and "5 Deadly Venomz" (featuring Treach, Apache, & Live Squad), just to name a few. 

Pac's name and the person would only grow from here.
