All the Raps listens to all the rappers on 2Pac’s friends and family plan.

One of the more underappreciated aspects of the late Tupac Shakur’s career was his always-unique taste in collaborators. Where other rappers might’ve been content to pad their tracklists out with fellow stars or childhood friends, Pac curated his projects with very particular intention, frequently tapping more obscure underground rappers from the Bay Area, Los Angeles and (inexplicably) New Jersey for verses. For this week’s All the Raps we’ll be exploring the catalogs of those lesser known artists, featuring demos, rarities and early tracks from Live Squad, Ray Luv, Mopreme, Digital Underground and more.
