BACKGROUND

In October 1995, Suge Knight and Jimmy Iovine
Jimmy Iovine
paid the $1.4 million bail necessary to get Shakur released from jail on charges of sexual abuse. At the time, Shakur was broke and thus unable to make bail himself. All Eyez on Me
All Eyez on Me
was released following an agreement between Knight and Shakur which stated Shakur would make three albums under Death Row Records
Death Row Records
in return for them paying his bail. Fulfilling part of Shakur's brand new contract, this double-album served as the first two albums of his three-album contract.

Euthanasia was the initial title of the album until it was changed to All Eyez on Me
All Eyez on Me
during the recording process. Shakur explained to MTV 's Bill Bellamy in December 1995 saying:

“ It's called All Eyez on Me. That's how I feel it is. I got the police watching me, the Feds. I got the females that want to charge me with false charges and sue me and all that. I got the females that like me. I got the jealous homeboys and I got the homies that roll with me. Everybody's looking to see what I'mma do now so All Eyez on Me. ”

All Eyez on Me
All Eyez on Me
was originally intended for a Christmas 1995 release but was pushed back as Shakur continued to record music and shoot music videos for the album.

RECORDING AND PRODUCTION

The album features guest spots from 2Pac's regulars, such as former- Thug Life members and The Outlawz , as well as Dr. Dre
Dr. Dre
, Snoop Dogg , Tha Dogg Pound
Tha Dogg Pound
, Nate Dogg
Nate Dogg
, and George Clinton , Rappin\' 4-Tay , The Click , Method Man , and Redman among others. The song "Heartz of Men" samples a portion of Richard Pryor's comedy album That Nigger\'s Crazy . Most of the album was produced by Johnny "J" and Daz Dillinger , with help from Dr. Dre
Dr. Dre
on the songs " California Love
California Love
", which he himself appeared in also as an album guest spot, and "Can't C Me", which was Clinton's appearance. DJ Quik also produced, mixed and made an appearance on the album, but had to use his real name on the credits because his contract with Profile Records prevented him from using his stage name.

LYRICAL THEMES

The songs on All Eyez on Me
All Eyez on Me
are, in general, unapologetic celebrations of living the "Thug Lifestyle". Though there is the occasional reminiscence about past and present friends, it is a definite move away from the social and political consciousness of 2Pacalypse Now and Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z... . The songs on the album along with the name of the album itself, allude to the feeling of being watched. With songs like "Can't C Me" and "All Eyez on Me", 2Pac
2Pac
makes it known that he feels the presence of surveillance, most notably by the police. The album also references the fact the 2Pac
2Pac
is under the attention of many fans, being his fourth studio album.

SINGLES

The first single, " California Love
California Love
" featuring Dr. Dre
Dr. Dre
and Roger Troutman was released, December 28, 1995. This is perhaps 2Pac
2Pac
's best-known song and his most successful, reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100
Billboard Hot 100
for two weeks (as a double A-side single with "How Do U Want It ") and 5 weeks at number one in New Zealand
New Zealand
. The song was nominated for a Grammy Award
Grammy Award
as a Best Rap Solo Performance and Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group (with Dr. Dre
Dr. Dre
and Roger Troutman) in 1997. A remix version also produced by Dr. Dre
Dr. Dre
appeared on the album. The song has since been certified 2x platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America . Rapper Snoop Dogg made an appearance on the album's second single "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted"

" 2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted " featuring rapper Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg
, was released as the second single on, May 7, 1996. The video was directed by one of 2Pac's production partners, Gobi M. Rahimi and was filmed four months prior to September 1996 shooting . The prelude for the song shows a parody of Biggie Smalls ("Piggie") and Puff Daddy ("Buff Daddy") in discussion with Shakur about the November 1994 shooting . The beginning of the scene where Tupac
Tupac
is speaking to Biggie is in reference to the movie Scarface where Tony speaks to his alleged killer before shooting him. The song peaked at number 46 on the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart.

The third single, " How Do U Want It
How Do U Want It
" featuring R&B
R&B
duo K-Ci & JoJo , was released, June 4, 1996. It was a Double A-side single to " California
California
Love" in America. The song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100. There were three videos filmed for the song: two in the same set for the single in April 1996. The video was directed by Ron Hightower and produced by Tracy D. Robinson. These two are distinguished by MPAA rating (one is certified adult material). The video portrays a wild sex party with jacuzzi, mechanical bull riding, cage dancing and pole stripping. All actors and actresses are dressed in renaissance-age costumes, though all clothes are removed for the nude clip. The adult-material video also features numerous porn stars, including Nina Hartley , Heather Hunter , and Angel Kelly . The limousine segment seen in the clean version is the same except no nudity. The third one is the concert version, mostly them performing on stage. There are cameo appearances by K-Ci "> Shot from the "Hit 'Em Up" music video, with stand-in Biggie (left), Shakur (center), and Lil\' Kim (right) Main article: Hit \'Em Up

"Hit 'Em Up" is a diss track featuring the Outlawz
Outlawz
. It was released on June 4, 1996, as the B-side to the single "How Do U Want It". The song's lyrics contain vicious insults to several East Coast rappers , including The Notorious B.I.G.
The Notorious B.I.G.
, Puffy , Mobb Deep , Lil\' Kim , Lil\' Cease , Chino XL and the entire Junior M.A.F.I.A. . The song was recorded in Los Angeles
Los Angeles
, California
California
at Can-Am Studios in May 1996. Reporter Chuck Philips
Chuck Philips
, who interviewed Shakur at Can-Am, described the song as "a caustic anti-East Coast jihad in which the rapper threatens to eliminate Biggie, Sean Combs
Sean Combs
(Puffy) , and a slew of Bad Boy artists and other New York acts." The music video for "Hit 'Em Up" was filmed in a warehouse off Slauson Avenue near Fox Hills Mall in Los Angeles
Los Angeles
in May 1996. "Hit 'Em Up" had a large role in exacerbating the East Coast– West Coast hip hop
West Coast hip hop
rivalry . The song is widely considered by the American hip hop community as one of the greatest "diss tracks" ever recorded. The song didn't appear on All Eyez on Me, due to it being recorded after the release of the album, however, it was included on Shakur's Greatest Hits album in 1998.

All Eyez on Me
All Eyez on Me
received widespread acclaim. Spin magazine gave it 7 out of 10 and said: "As long as you don't expect philanthropy from Tupac
Tupac
, you'll find honesty and some pleasurably twisted scenarios." The record ranked No. 3 on Entertainment Weekly
Entertainment Weekly
's list of Top 10 albums of 1996. AllMusic stated, "Maybe it was his time in prison, or maybe it was simply his signing with Suge Knight 's Death Row label. Whatever the case, 2Pac
2Pac
re-emerged hardened and hungry with All Eyez on Me, the first double-disc album of original material in hip-hop history. With all the controversy surrounding him, 2Pac
2Pac
seemingly wanted to throw down a monumental epic whose sheer scope would make it an achievement of itself. But more than that, it's also an unabashed embrace of the gangsta lifestyle, backing off the sober self-recognition of Me Against the World . Sure, there are a few reflective numbers and dead-homiez tributes, but they're much more romanticized this time around"."Despite some undeniable filler, it is easily the best production 2Pac's ever had on record". In the Los Angeles Times , Cheo Hodari Coker praised the album: "All Eyez on Me, a 27-song, 133-minute gangster's paradise, finds the rapper even more venomous than he was before his 11-month incarceration for sexual abuse. He displays no remorse for his tough life, and even less feeling for his enemies. The only thing jail time did for 2Pac
2Pac
was make his creative fires burn even hotter—he raps here with a passion and skill matched in gangsta rap only by Snoop Doggy Dogg and the Notorious B.I.G.
Notorious B.I.G.
And with such producers as DJ Pooh , DJ Quik , Dr. Dre and Johnny J laying down the tracks, he finally has a musical team worthy of his talent."

"It's like a Cali thug-life version of Pink Floyd
Pink Floyd
's The Wall – pure gangsta ego run amok over two CDs," complained Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone
. "At that length, the album's all-hard-all-the-time tone approaches caricature." Nonetheless, the album was included in the magazine's essential recordings of the 1990s.
