Released only eight weeks after Tupac Shakur died from gunshot wounds, Death Row released this posthumous album, The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory, under the name of Makaveli, a pseudonym derived from the Italian politician Niccolo Machiavelli, who faked his own death and reappeared seven days later to take revenge on his enemies.

Overview

Released only eight weeks after Tupac Shakur died from gunshot wounds, Death Row released this posthumous album, The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory, under the name of Makaveli, a pseudonym derived from the Italian politician Niccolo Machiavelli, who faked his own death and reappeared seven days later to take revenge on his enemies. Naturally, the appearance of Don Killuminati so shortly after Tupac's death led many conspiracy theorists to surmise the rapper was still alive, but it was all part of a calculated marketing strategy by Death Row. All Eyez on Me proved that Tupac was continuing to grow as a musician and a human being, but Don Killuminati doesn't improve upon that image; instead it concentrates on G-funk beats and East Coast/West Coast rivalries. If Tupac had survived to complete Don Killuminati, it is likely that the record would have been even better.

Where can i begin? Im gonna skip the part about how sick Pac is, because i think we already know that. Therefore Im gonna get to the album real quick. This album has to be one of the classics in rap music, anybody that knows rap will know tracks like Hailmary and To live and die in L.A. Pac speaks his mind in this album more so than in other album he ever recorded. It almost makes one feel like he knew he was gonna die in the near future, becuase he didnt hold anything back . He said what he felt, and didnt worry about the consequences. He lyrically assults his enemies to a point where u look at his foes differently."as if to say why did i ever listen to them fake cats", and when anybody has that affect on others, it shows you how big of a leader he was. and how his words got to his listeners heads and affected them.

I was reading another guy article and he said people that don't listen to tupac don't understand what he is saying. I agree 100% because if they did they would know what he was screaming his lungs out for. Off top the 7 day Theory could be Tupac hardest album ever to be release, but everybody know me I say that about ever cd he make. I like how Pac brung it back to Cali for part2 dissing dre for sho. Everytime I talk about this guy I just want to talk about that guy forever.

Tupac Shakur¿s darkest moment and lyrically his finest hour¿.THE 7 DAY THEORY was released only a month after the untimely death of the King of West Coast Rap. While ALL EYEZ ON ME relied on R&B influenced production and the aid of producers such as Dr. Dre, the Makaveli album was undoubtedly raw and grittier than the double-disc classic. In other words, 2Pac just didn¿t give a Fu** with this album, he was going to speak his mind and the world was going to listen. The victims of his verbal assault were Puff Daddy, the Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Mobb Deep and Nas among others. Pac¿s venemous artillery become apparent from the intro and first track ¿Bomb First¿ as he shouts ¿We bomb first when we ride, please reconsider before you die. We didn¿t even come to fight tonight but if it¿s my life or your life then I¿m gonna bomb first¿. The album is packed with Left Coast classics such as the Dre-dissing club banger ¿Toss It Up¿ and the Los Angeles anthem ¿To Live & Die In LA¿. As opposed to ALL EYEZ ON ME, however, the Makaveli album wasn¿t designed to penetrate the clubs. The production landscape was dark and eerie with tracks such as the flawless ¿Hail Mary¿ and the track ¿Blasphemy¿ where Makaveli denounces more than a few beliefs when he declares ¿We¿re probably in Hell already, our dumb azzes not knowing. Everybody kissing azz to go to heaven aint goin.¿ But religious organizations aren¿t the only ones that raised a brow at Pac¿s lyrics. A lot of East Coast heavy-hitters also had major reason for concern. ¿God don¿t like ugly, It Was Written, hey Nas your whole d**n style is bitten.¿ From Queensbridge to Brooklyn, Pac took shots at NY hip-hop. Released in the fire of the East-West hip-hop war, the album only added flames to the fire. A fire that may have brought the demise of one of rap¿s greatest. But as Makaveli put it, he¿d ¿Bring the real and be a legend whether living or dead.¿.

This has got to be of 2pacs best albums ever. It is filled with excellent lyrics and really cool beats. There are heaps of ecxellent tracks here such as "me & my girlfriend" "to live and die in la" and krazy". An excellent album that is a must buy for any hip-hop fan.

This CD is awesome! The tracks are great especially Me & My Girl Friend. The songs on this album gives some mellow beats for the ones who like slow rap, and there are songs on it that are hard rap for those who prefer the tight stuff. 2 Pac has always been one of my favorite rappers ever. But this album just helps me too like him even more than I do. I recommend this CD to anyone who loves 2 Pac, or just likes some good beats.

The could be the most underrated cd's ever released in hip-hop. This is a classic! When you first hear it, the productions sounds like some of the darkest, eiry ever - like nother ever before in hip-hop. Tupac does the rest. Tracks such as "Blasphemy" "Krazy" "White Man'z World" and "Hold your head" grip your heart and soul and have you coming back over and over again. "Hail Mary" "Me and My Girlfriend" and "Against All Odds" just get you pumped up for war, whatever you are against. The rest of the songs just carry you along. LISTEN TO THE OPENING LINE ON TRACK ONE "BOMB FIRST", YOU HEAR A VERY FAINT WHISPER: "SUGE SHOT ME"

Man this is some crazy stuff. This is real hip-hop. It's the best cd because his lyrics make sence. Every song on here is amazing. You have to buy this CD if your a fan of hip-hop or 2pac.

This album deserves more than classic status. It only has a few songs but is better than 98% of all full length albums to this date. You can hear the hunger and passion throughout the whole cd. Do yourself a favor and buy this now..

These albums left me wondering about 2Pac¿s death, it¿s like there are clues being said on the back of every track. This is the type of album to just listen over and over. Some of my favorite tracks are Hold 'Ya Head, Crazy (amazing songs). The entire album is amazing; any 2Pac fan knows it holds it own next to his other greatest albums. This album gives much insight on many things; it is the type of album critics hate since they cannot understand the genius of the songs in this album. This is truly his best album yet!
