Would have been 5 stars if it was official
(4 out of 5 stars)
"make it or break it videos, which also puts music videos on tapes created this dvd of 2pac videos. unfortunately, some of the aren't perfect quality...it seems as if they just dubbed the vhs versions onto a dvd (holla if ya hear me doesn't have great sound, so many tears has some static, but the others seem ok), but it's still worth the price cuz it's 2pac. i would have given it 5 stars, but it's not official 2pac and some busters are probably making money and not giving it back to 2pac's estate.this dvd has the following videos on it:1) all about u 2) do for love 3) i ain't mad at cha 4) how do u want it 5) california love 6) california love remix 7) if my homey calls 8) holla if ya hear me 9) so many tears 10) papa'z song 11) to live & die in LA 12) 2 of americaz most wanted"
An official 2pac music video DVD must come out!

"Okay... so someone finally released a 2pac music video DVD. When I first saw this in the store I got really excited because I expected DVD quality 2Pac music videos. What I saw was a weak attempt to release his material onto DVD. All the videos are very obviously dubbed from VHS copies, resulting in non-DVD quality picture and sound.The chapters on the DVD don't even point to the beggining of the music vidos (ie. the intros) and instead point to where the music starts. What happens is that when you want to see the whole video, you have to skip to that video and then REWIND to see the begining! Tedious and annoying. They even put in some funky transitions between videos.Also, there are some very important videos missing, especially videos like hit 'em up, keep ya head up, and toss it up. A DVD has enough room to have all of 2Pac's music videos in BOMB quality... even with room left over for an interview or something. They were very skimpy with the ammount of videos they put on this.Deathrow and Affeni and whoever else has the rights to the videos need to release an official DVD with ALL the videos in DVD quality. They'd make a lot of money off it, and that is what people want... especially if they'd go out and buy this one.Due to a lack of options, this IS the best (and as far as I know the only) 2Pac music video DVD out there. I'd recomend this DVD to anyone who is a really big 2Pac fan and doesn't want to wait for an official DVD that may never even come out. All 2Pac music videos are BOMB, and not even the VHS-dubbed quality of this DVD can hurt his style."
This is alright

"The best way to enjoy this DVD collection of some of Tupac's best videos is to simply take it for what it is. The picture and audio quality ain't great, especially on the older videos (If My Homies Call, Holla If Ya Hear Me, So Many Tears). It's very obvious these videos were dubbed from some VHS copies of Tupac videos which were no doubt just put together to make some quick cash. I knew this before buying the DVD, but I got it anyway because I'm a Tupac nut. And if you put aside the technical flaws of this video collaboration, you're sure to be in for a treat, especially if you're a late Tupac bloomer and haven't even seen these videos before. The older ones are close to impossible to find anywhere else these days, so that's one good point. And don't be turned off to find some of your favorite Pac songs not on this DVD; they're expected to release a Best of Tupac, Vol. 2 soon. I hope to God it includes Dear Mama and Keep Ya Head Up.This really isn't a bad buy if, as I said, you take it for what it is. Before the videos begin, there's a disclaimer that says that the DVD is nothing more than promotional material. True, the audio and video quality should have been a little better and handled more professionally, but I'm happy with them. It was just great to see a timeline of Tupac music videos and how he changed, both physically and philisophically. It was also clear that Tupac had lots of fun making these videos, especially on the California Love Remix, which suggested that he really did care about his career and wasn't just another bum who was in it for the money. The highlight of the DVD is the beginning of the 2 Of Amerika'z Most Wanted video, in which Tupac recreates a scene from Scarface. Tupac walks into Puff & Biggie's loft after being shot in the hotel lobby, and Biggie begins to beg Tupac to let him live. "I'm just a rapper, Pac! It was all Puff's idea! Please don't take me out of the game!" Needless to say, it was harsh and hilarious."

"The videos are good, they're Pac, so of course they are. But the videos are edited; "bad" words are cut out (specifically "ho" in "all about you" and in california love the bottles are blurred). it's good, but i would try to find a copy of the original versions if you really like pac. this is alright if you're desperate for his videos, but it's like turning on MTV during a 2pac marathon. i'd rather have the real deal."
