It’s been three years since he last released something, which by today’s standards makes a new record long overdue. Oh yeah, and he’s dead. Fourteen years after his death, 2Pac is coming out with another new album.
WIDEawake Entertainment Group, who acquired the label that helped 2Pac rise to fame, Death Row Records, last year, is planning on putting out a new album from the late rapper, reports CHARTattack.com.
John Payne, president of WIDEawake, told Vibe magazine that the new record will feature songs recorded from 2Pac’s All Eyez On Me era.
“This is unreleased 2Pac… no remastering or remixing,” he said, continuing, “I believe that these songs could have been 2Pac’s next record if he were still alive.”
So far, the new album doesn’t have a release date, but if you’re in the mood for some 2Pac, you’ve got some options: You can check out one of the six albums that were released before his death in 1996, or one of the seventeen studio albums, live records, rarities collections, and of course the greatest hits records that have been released after he died.
