Makaveli is the artist otherwise known as 2Pac, and this album arrives in stores two months after 2Pac was murdered in Las Vegas. Many 2Pac fans believe his lyrics regularly foreshadowed his tragic death, and there is plenty here to keep those conversations going. But the lyrics on THE DON KILLUMINATI: THE 7 DAY THEORY also represent life. The rapper's haunting voice carries songs like "Krazy" and "White Man'z World," on which Makaveli appears almost as a spirit, providing guidance for living in the same world that 2Pac lost his life in.
Not surprisingly, the production is top-quality, upholding the standard of earlier 2Pac records. He remains controversial as ever, and with THE DON KILLUMINATI, he may have got in the last word in a hip-hop war that, he proclaims, had nothing to do with the East or the West.
