Death is a constant theme on the album, and on “So Many Tears” we get a glimpse inside the mind of a man on the brink of madness. We find an almost vulnerable 2Pac not only dealing with the pain he struggled with through his childhood, but with the internal demons that are tying to break free. The low groove created by D-Flizno Production Squad that samples Stevie Wonder’s “That Girl,” really fits the dark/depressing theme that 2Pac was trying to achieve, the song is nothing short of a masterpiece.
Stretch, who was a close friend of Pac’s, was removed from this song just before it was released, due to their falling out after 2Pac’s shooting incident at Quad Recording Studios. The original version can be heard here:
