The songs "Trapped" and "Brenda's Got a Baby" were widely noted both for their poetic qualities and their strong critiques of unjust social policies.Dan Quayle criticized the album after a Texas youth's defense attorney claimed he was influenced by 2Pacalypse Now and its theme of police brutality before shooting a state trooper.He said, "I started out saying I was down for the young black male, you know, and that was gonna be my thang," Shakur said. It is Shakur's tenth-biggest selling album, with 1,366,000 units moved as of 2004."I just wanted to rap about things that affected young black males. The album did better than its predecessor both critically and commercially, debuting at number 24 on the Billboard 200. In late 1993, Shakur formed the group Thug Life with a number of his friends, including Big Syke (Tyruss Himes), Macadoshis (Diron Rivers), his stepbrother Mopreme Shakur, and the Rated R (Walter Burns).Shakur was born in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City but relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1988.He later moved to Los Angeles in 1993 to further pursue his music career.By the time he released his debut album 2Pacalypse Now in 1991, he had become a central figure in West Coast hip hop, introducing social issues in the genre at a time when gangsta rap was dominant in the mainstream. G., Shakur's friend turned rival, was at first considered a suspect, but was also murdered in another drive-by shooting several months later.On September 7, 1996, Shakur was shot four times by an unknown assailant in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas; he died six days later and the gunman was never captured. Five more albums have been released since his death, all of which have been certified Platinum.
The album contains ten tracks because Interscope Records felt many of the other recorded songs were too controversial to release.On MTV's Greatest Rappers of All Time list, 2Pacalypse Now was listed as one of Shakur's "certified classic" albums, along with Me Against the World, All Eyez on Me and The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory. The group usually performed their concerts without Shakur.2Pacalypse Now went on to be certified Gold by the RIAA. The album was originally released by Shakur's label Out Da Gutta Records, though Amaru Entertainment has since gained the rights to it.The album's name is a reference to the 1979 film Apocalypse Now.2Pacalypse Now generated significant controversy for numerous reasons.
Quayle said, "There's no reason for a record like this to be released. It spawned the hits "Keep Ya Head Up" and "I Get Around", and reached platinum status.
