Mutulu was wanted for having helped his friend (no relation) Assata Shakur (also known as Joanne Chesimard), Tupac's godmother, to escape from a penitentiary in New Jersey in 1979.
Dan Quayle criticized the album after a Texas youth's defense attorney claimed he was influenced by 2Pacalypse Now and its theme of police brutality before shooting a state trooper.
Quayle said, "There's no reason for a record like this to be released. It spawned the hits "Keep Ya Head Up" and "I Get Around", and reached platinum status.

It has no place in our society." Shakur stated that he felt he had been misunderstood. On vinyl, Side A (tracks 1–8) was labeled the "Black Side" and Side B (tracks 9–16) the "Dark Side".

Shakur is one of the best-selling music artists of all time having sold over 75 million records worldwide.
In 2010, Shakur was inducted to the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry.
