What Songs Did Biggie & Tupac Record Together While Still Alive?
This article will ONLY present you with the three (3) original tracks that were recorded and finished while they were still both alive! Enjoy!
The least known but at the same time most officially released track during their lifetime is an amazing track from a compilation album by Eddie F & The Untouchables called 'Let's Get It On: The Album' from 1994. The title track titled 'Let's Get It On' features Grand Puba, 2Pac, Biggie & Heavy D. and is a delightfully smooth listen.
This track appeared on a 1995 compilation album to commemorate the 1995 Million Man March in Washington, D.C. titled 'One Million Strong'. The track was titled 'Runnin' from tha Police' and it featured 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G., Stretch, Buju Banton and Dramacydal. 'Runnin' from tha Police' was supposed to be released on Tupac's side project Thug Life, but was cut due to violent lyrics about killing or kidnapping police officers, this was bad timing as gangsta rap was currently under heavy criticism. The track was later supposed to appear on 2Pac's 'Me Against The World' but was once again cut due to the '94 Quad City shooting of Tupac and the consequent falling out between Tupac and Biggie over Biggie allegedly having knowledge of or some kind of involvement in the shooting of Tupac.
Junior M.A.F.I.A. released a mixtape with a song titled 'House Of Pain' on it, it featured Tupac, Biggie and Big Stretch. Under this paragraph, you can listen to the original track that was never released officially so it sounds like a demo due to poor quality. The track has been remixed several times and the most popular version eventually became a much smoother and more soulful version which was retitled as 'Living In Pain', this track featured Mary J. Blige and Nas and was released on Biggie's last posthumous album titled 'Duets: The Final Chapter'.
So those were the three tracks that Biggie & Tupac recorded while they were still alive!
