Even after Tupac Shakur was tragically gunned down in Las Vegas, his legacy continued to
live on through his music. In addition to the 2pac albums we all love and have become
familiar with, there are posthumous testaments to his talent like R U STILL DOWN, which
contains songs that were unreleased at the time of his death. Having left a large body of
work behind, 2Pac continues to voice his opinion and is still among the most powerful
rappers, even after his untimely passing.
The first release on his own Amaru Records, R U STILL DOWN? [REMEMBER ME] was overseen by
2Pac's mother, Afeni Shakur. This album features a younger, more inexperienced 2Pac, and
it airs his views on life from a time before he became involved in the controversial east
coast/west coast rivalry. His lyrics ironically foreshadow his death in songs like
"Open Fire" and "Thug Style." Yet another look at the slain rapper, R
U STILL DOWN? [REMEMBER ME] gives fans more of 2Pac to remember him by.
