Despite his brief existence, NYC-born rap legend Tupac Shakur left a thick musical catalogue that would shadow most rappers' lifetime work. Indeed, six years after his death by gunfire, the 2Pac estate is still unveiling albums of remaining, lost, and unfinished recordings. However, NU-MIXX KLAZZICS is something a bit different.
For this release, rap mogul Suge Knight has gathered many popular tracks, (most of them from the epochal ALL EYEZ ON ME, the final record 2Pac would release during his life), lifted the vocal tracks, and furnished them with entirely new beats. To accentuate the remixes, special guests drop by to provide new vocals, including Aaron Hall, K-Ci & JoJo, and the Outlawz. NU-MIXX KLAZZICS offers fans a different perspective from which to view 2Pac's legacy, pairing the twisted, poetic lyrics of the prodigal genius with pared-down, dirtier, darker beats. For instance, "Hail Mary" is taken out of its original DON KILLUMINATI shell of church bells and tympanies and placed in a more sinister world of drones and sirens. 2Pac's legacy extends throughout the hip-hop world, and NU-MIXX KLAZZICS is yet another example of how much he had to offer.
