If you're not down with Marshall Mathers, you'll probably want to pass this one by, though the four bonus tracks alone might make this a worthwhile venture regardless.

Rolling Stone

Loyal to the Game is a decent remix album curated by Tupac scholar Eminem, who set old 'Pac verses and a couple new ones from Em's buddies to dark, punchy beats.


van Gogh’s body of work isn’t tainted by a bunch of hackneyed paintings cut ‘n’ paste together after his death, which is exactly what Loyal to the Game is — an unnecessary blemish that van Gogh himself would’ve cut off.

NOW Magazine

2Pac's too dead to have any say in the homogeneous production and terrible signature flourishes that have been forced on him.


I know most posthumous albums are bad and shameless cash grabs for the most part, but DAMN this is so underrated. So many tracks slapped on this release, and if it wasn't for a handful of bad remixes to songs that didn't need them. This would be a classic in my book.

I would highly recommend giving this a listing if you haven't; super sleeper album.

Top 5 Tracks: Don’t You Trust Me (Best), Loyal To The Game, Hennessey, Ghetto Gospel, Thug 4 Life

I knew that I would like a 2Pac album with Eminem production but wow do I like this a lot. Honestly my favorite 2Pac posthumous album.


This kind of sucked. Eminem is a very good and underrated producer in general but most of his beats didn't fit Pac at all. The mixing on most of the vocals weren't too good here. There's some alright features and a few songs I enjoyed but unless you're a HUGE fan of both Pac and Eminem I wouldn't recommend this.

Best Tracks: The Uppercut, Black Cotton, Hennessey
Worst Tracks: Soldier Like Me, Thugs Get Lonely Too, Who Do You Love?
