In this months (Aug.) issue of Vibe magazine, they list 12 Essential Posthumous Songs by the late hip hop icon Tupac (2Pac) Shakur.

The list of hip hop tracks is impressive and it is great to see Vibe consider them as ‘essential’ (vital or important) at this point in hip hop.

Tupac made many songs that could be considered ‘essential’ and many that are considered ‘hip hop classics’, but the posthumous material has took its fair share of bashing and to have these 12 tracks be called ‘essential’ just shows the strength and respect that Tupac (2Pac) has gained; even in death. Tupac's legacy grows stronger and wider every year, as not only the hip hop community but mainstream society notices the awareness and contributions that Tupac made in his short life.

These posthumous releases also show the care and respect that AMARU puts into releasing material with Tupac’s name of it. The teams who put the posthumous material together should be proud of the things they have accomplished in Tupac’s name and also the contributions that they have given to the hip hop community.
