"Toss It Up" is a song by Tupac Shakur released on the The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory album under the alias Makaveli. It features K-Ci and JoJo, Danny Boy and Aaron Hall in the chorus.
The first verse is about Makaveli and his escapades with women along with Danny Boy and JoJo
. The second verse by K-Ci and Aaron Hall, it is all about women as well. The final verse is a critical verse aimed at Dr. Dre for leaving Death Row
, not attending Snoop Dogg
's (formerly 'Snoop Doggy Dogg') murder trial, taking credit for work he did not do, and not doing his part which was a sign of disrespect to Death Row as Shakur took it. One famous line in the song is "Check your sexuality, as fruity as this Alizé
There are two videos for Toss It Up , which were both shot on September 6, 1996, the day before Tupac was shot in Las Vegas
. The first and more common video shows Makaveli and others in a garage, setting the garage on fire. It shows Makaveli burning Death Row matches and wearing his Makaveli medallion. Makaveli also breaks a mirror in this video, further fueling those that believe the 7 Day Theory, the theory that Tupac faked his death the night he was shot 4 times on September 7, 1996.
The second and more elusive video plays like an all-out party. It features Makaveli, Danny Boy, K-Ci & JoJo and a shirtless Aaron Hall dancing on a balcony and at a beach surrounded by girls and various other people. This was the video version which was to be released for the single, but never did.
This track is the only party song on the The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory album, and it shows a stark contrast compared to the other tracks on the album.
In 1998 the song appeared on 2Pac's Greatest Hits. A remix of the song was also featured on the album Nu-Mixx Klazzics in 2003.
