This Day In Hip Hop and Rap History

October 13th – Interscope/Amaru/Death Row Records releases the posthumous 2Pac hit “Changes”, on this day in 1998.

“Changes” was recorded in 1992 while the late rapper was still with Interscope.

The hit song produced by Deon Evans, sampled the classic Bruce Hornsby And The Range hit of the 1980’s “The Way It Is”.

Some of the lyrics were from another track he had recorded called “I Wonder If Heaven Got A Ghetto”, which was eventually posthumously released as well in 1997.

The Grammy-nominated song would be from his posthumous “Greatest Hits” album released the same year.

“Changes” would tackle such issues like racism, police brutality, violence, poverty and the so-called war on drugs.
