Greatest Hits is a double disc greatest hits album for late rapper 2Pac, released by Amaru/Death Row/Jive/Interscope in 1998. The album’s non-chronological sequence highlights 2Pac’s career; the 21 popular hits, some slightly re-edited for legal reasons, are accompanied by four previously unreleased songs: the dead friends tribute « God Bless the Dead », the dedication song « Unconditional Love », the tough talk « Troublesome ’96 », and the album’s single « Changes » also helped earn 2Pac the first and only posthumous Grammy Award nomination since for Best Rap Solo Performance. Some tracks have alternate mixes, while « California Love » makes its first proper album appearance after only being available as a single prior. Of the new material, the raw-sounding « God Bless the Dead » has been the subject of the most speculation, owing to its subject matter: an apparent eulogizing of « Biggie Smalls »—a mysterious feat, since Tupac was killed six months before Biggie Smalls. The song has been misinterpreted as a clear and direct homage to Biggie. It actually pays homage to « Biggy Smallz ». Biggy Smallz (1979 – 1994) was a Los Angeles rapper and songwriter known for the few collaborations he had with famed hip-hop producer Johnny J. He is the subject of Tupac Shakur’s controversial tribute song “God Bless the Dead”. This person should not be confused with The Notorious B.I.G., who went by a similar name: Biggie Smalls. In addition to this, Biggy Smallz is often mistaken with Deon Evans, also known as Big D the Impossible. Evans (who is still alive) is a producer who had worked with Tupac Shakur on his earlier albums 2Pacalypse Now and Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z. According to Nielsen Soundscan, 2Pac’s 1998 Greatest Hits (Interscope) had sold 5,000,000 copies by 2013. In June 2011 it was certified by the RIAA for shipments of over 10 million copies, the late rapper’s first ever RIAA Diamond award. Tupac Shakur’s two-CD Greatest Hits collection debuted at No. 5 with 268,000.
