Dark Light

It really is quite unbelievable that there was only a five year gap between 2Pac’s debut album and his first posthumous release.

In those few years that he was alive and recording music, he create an unrivalled catalogue that cemented his legacy as one of the greatest rappers of all time, as well as one of the best-selling hip hop artists ever.
