This 2pac and the O-Fists song is a classic that has been around for quite a while. It is a very well written song, and the subject matter is very enlightening as well. The music and lyrics are both great. The second verse even discusses the difference between being a friend and a foe.
In this day and age, with all the illegal activity that goes on, it is important to remember who we are and what we stand for. In the case of the O-Fists, the group made some controversial statements in the past. However, today they are more into spiritual issues and things like the origin of the planet Earth and other such stuff. Two years ago they released an album called Lasting Bonds. That album is the same one that you hear on the 2pac and the outlaw sound track.
One interesting thing about the album was the use of “EDI”. I don’t know if it is a legitimate acronym or not. But it looks like the letters EA, DW, and OS is part of the meaning of the phrase “EDI”, which is Electronic Data Interchange. So maybe “EDI” is another way of saying Electronic Data Interchange? It could be used in conjunction with other acronyms, as well.
Lasting Bonds contains songs that feature the O-Fists, the 2pac, and also the Outsiders. It contains the hit song “No One Lives Forever” by Atmosphere, the song that features the immortal line “isn’t nothing good in this world” from Michael Jackson. It is a beautiful song, and it contains the line “And if I die, someone take my place? Why you ask?”
One thing about albums from the O-Fists, and other prison related art are the amount of subject matter they deal with. The artists who create such artistry often deal with crime, punishment, life, love, and so much more. If you want to feel like an actual criminal, you can listen to this album. You will definitely feel like you have stepped into another dimension. The artwork for this album is truly spectacular, and is something you won’t want to miss out on.
For people who enjoy mind-boggling tales, as well as tough love, the album Two Pac and the Inslaw Band will probably be a winner. This is definitely an album you have to hear. You will totally get lost, you will feel like you are a part of the action, and you will think you are in the rarefied circle of people who appreciate the art of the Outlaws. Two Pac and the Inslaw Band are definitely a must-listen for anyone who likes tough, true crime stories.
