Tupac Shakur is still the best/selling hip hop artist and a modern tragic hero. Here's the definitive instrumental collection of the man who was able to bring Hip Hop to mainstream with anthems such as Temptations, So Many Tears, California Love, etc. Tupac's songs concerned growing up around violence and hardships in ghettos, racial inequality and sometimes his feuds with fellow rappers in the United States.

Like most 80s electronic bands, Amin-Peck walked a fine line between disco and minimal wave throughout the course of the early 1980s, oftentimes incorporating shameless pop melodies and avant-garde leanings.

In 1987, during the recording of the single "Come Back And Stay" Tony Hendrik and Karen Hartmann decided to replace lead vocalist Trevor Taylor with John McInerney. Since then John has become a kind of special feature of Bad Boys Blue. "Love Is No Crime" has two hit-singles: "Charlene", a song from the repertoire of Roxanne, another Tony Hendrik and Karin Hartmann artist, and, of course, the classic title track.
The Fifth is the first Bad Boys Blue album without original lead vocalist Trevor Taylor. Original member John McInerney took complete control of the band at this point and is still to this day the only original member performing with Bad Boys Blue. The group toured extensively across Europe for this album, on the success of the singles "Lady In Black" and "A Train To Nowhere" and the album was a hit, especially in Eastern Europe where they remain hugely popular. Another Euro disco and synth-pop classic from Bad Boys Blue reissued by Mirumir.
