    My copy has some black specking in the gold on side b. Looks like dirt or some thing else from production. Doesn't effect play at all. Sounds great, nice collection of some of Pac's work. Also enjoyed the blurb from his mother in the gatefold. With most of his stuff being pretty pricey on vinyl I was glad to scoop this and am even gladder it sounds great.

      I think this is an underrated Target release. The vinyls are both completely flat on my platter and they're both hefty maybe 140-180 gram. The gold has a slight hint of metallic, but it's a deep gold. The sound quality is excellent! Perhaps this is why there are only three tracks per side. The gatefold is beautifully designed and respectful to 2Pac. I think both of these albums are really decent for the price! Deep velvety bass and silent between songs. No static. No pops. Flawless!
