Classic Album Review: 2Pac | Resurrection / Nu-Mixx Klazzics

If the slain rapper were alive, he'd be out gunning for the folks behind these LPs.

This came out in 2003 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):


Some conspiracy theorists claim slain gangster rapper Tupac Shakur is still alive. And no wonder — his name has appeared on more than a dozen retrospective discs since he was gunned down in Las Vegas in 1996.

Most have been meaningless. Others — like Resurrection, yet another generic hits set that serves as the soundtrack to an upcoming film — have slight relevance but remain inessential. But none has been as thoroughly revolting and unlistenable as Nu-Mixx Klazzics, a horrible hodge-podge of cruddy remixes cobbled together by Suge Knight between stretches in prison. Despite its obvious flaws, Nu-Mixx Klazzics does serve one purpose: It proves beyond doubt that Shakur really is dead. After all, if he weren’t, he’d be out with a shotgun hunting down everyone involved with this piece of cash-grabbing necrophilia.
