Thanks to Swizz Beatz's slick remixing and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's rapping, "Untouchable" doesn't really need Shakur; he's essentially superfluous. Ditto for the rendition of the title cut featuring Snoop Dogg, T.I. and Chris Starr; with so many living performers fighting for the spotlight, the dead guy doesn't stand a chance. Not that he expresses any complaints. "Playa Cardz Right" appears in a "female" version starring Keyshia Cole and a "male" counterpart headlined by Ludacris, yet Shakur sounds the same on both. That's professionalism, cadaver style.
Without Pac's death, Pac's Life would never have existed. Too bad the gunman was such a good shot.
