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.
Mutulu was caught in 1986 and eventually imprisoned for the 1981 robbery of a Brinks armored truck in which two police officers and a guard were killed.
Shakur developed a close friendship with Jada Pinkett (later Jada Pinkett Smith) that lasted until his death.
It is considered one of the greatest and most influential hip-hop albums of all time.
