Loyal to the Game

Loyal to the Game is an album containing remixes of previously unreleased music recorded by Tupac Shakur before his death in 1996. Released in the US on December 14 2004 (December 12 in the UK), Loyal to the Game was produced by Eminem, and is consequently very reminiscent of Eminem's style.

According to an interview with MTV, Eminem was so moved by Tupac's life and work that he wrote a letter to Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, asking her to consider letting him produce the album. and she agreed, and gave the go ahead. The album featured two singles- "Thugs Get Lonely Too" and "Ghetto Gospel".

Eminem used various unusual production techniques during the creation of this album, namely modifying the pace and pitch of Tupac's voice to better suit the beats produced. There has also been cutting and pasting of vocals to produce new words now synonymous with current rap culture.

It debuted on the Billboard 200 at number one with sales of over 330,000 copies in its first week. It was later certified Platinum in the US and Gold in UK.
