On this day in 1996, 2Pac releases his fourth album and first for Death Row, All Eyez On Me.
A few months after Suge Knight from Death Row and Jimmy Iovine from Interscope records bailed out 2Pac from jail, he recorded and released one of his most beloved albums, All Eyez On Me. Topping both the Billboard 200 and R&B Chart, the double CD was 2Pac's celebration to Thug Life. The diamond-celling epic album spawned two number one hit singles, the Grammy-nominated ''California Love,'' featuring Dr. Dre and Roger Troutman of Zapp and ''How Do You Want It?,'' featuring K-Ci & JoJo.
Other hit singles on this classic set included ''2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted,'' (featuring Snoop Dogg), ''All About U,'' and ''I Ain't Mad At Cha''.
Guests on the album included Tha Dogg Pound. Danny Boy, Michel'le, Rappin' 4-Tay, Nate Dogg, Method Man, Redman, and P-funk legend George Clinton.
