“Living In Pain” uses vocals from the 2Pac/Biggie collaboration “House of Pain” they recorded together in 1993 or 1994 and mixes them with new Mary J. Blige and Nas vocals.

Nas previously provided vocals on the posthumously released 2Pac song “Thugz Mansion” and he also provided vocals for the posthumous Biggie track “I Really Want To Show You” along with K-Ci & JoJo.

The piano and string-filled Just Blaze track is sampled from Lamont Dozier’s 1974 song “Blue Sky and Silver Bird.”
