The Source

Reviews from critics and fans were mixed, with the general consensus being that while
2Pac's vocals were undoubtedly strong, the modern production sounded
commercialized. As AllMusic described: "This isn't to say that there is not some great
material on Pac's Life, because there is ..., but the power of 2Pac's words is often lost
behind the modern production and new verses from artists like Ludacris, Lil Scrappy,
and Ashanti."[1]

Commercial performance

Pac's Life sold 159,000 copies in its first week on the charts.[2] It has sold 469,639 copies
in the United States as of 2011.[3]
This is the first and only 2Pac album not to be certified.
