Flashback Friday: Makaveli and Batman Forever Soundtrack

Man, winter decided to visit the Dirty South early this year. We’re dealing with that runny nose/ashy hand weather down here.

Stay warm and listen to these old favorites.


Makaveli, The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory (1997)

It’s no secret that I’m not the biggest 2Pac fan, but even I have to give it up for this album. Now known as Makaveli, Pac reinvented himself as a dreary prophet, practically predicting his own death. Of course, that’s also the reason why blind stans STILL believe Pac will return from hiding in Cuba to raise hip-hop from the ashes. News flash: Pac ain’t coming back, but at least he left us with this treasure.

Batman Forever Soundtrack (1995)

90s soundtracks were awesome and this collection was no different. Its strength lies in its diversity — everyone from Method Man and Brandy to U2 and The Flaming Lips made appearances. Of course, the biggest track came from Seal, which would go on to be a career-defining record.

Also check out:

“The Riddler,” Method Man

“Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me,” U2
