DJ Daryl, who has worked on many Tupac songs in the past, previews an all new version of Tupac’s “U Can Call Me.”
It has been almost 17 years since an official Tupac album was released. Since his demise back in 1996, seven posthumous releases have hit the shelves and DSP’s. Now in 2023, it appears we are inching closer to the all new Tupac album.
Back in December of 2022, E-Love confirmed unheard Tupac songs exist and will be released in 2023. According to E-Love, those unreleased Tupac songs were produced by Battlecat and are still in the vault. “Bob did more songs with him than I did,” explained E-Love in a recent interview. “I did two to three songs. Actually two songs are coming out next year. Bob did a string of songs that still have not yet come out.” (Watch: Unreleased Tupac Music Coming In 2023 Confirmed By E-Love)
Another producer in DJ Daryl, who is also responsible for one of Tupac’s biggest records of all time, has previewed a new song from the rap icon.
In 1993, Tupac went on to release his sophomore album “Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z,” which featured the hit single “Keep Ya Head Up.” Recorded in Echo Sound, Daryl did his magic on the track which sampled Zapp’s “Be Alright” and the chorus taken from The Five Stairsteps’ “O-o-h Child.”
Daryl, who also contributed to songs off various posthumous releases, recorded music with Tupac that were never officially released. One those records, “U Can Call Me,” will finally get its release in 2023, with Daryl upgrading his original beat.
“U Can Call Me was the last song I produced for #2PAC before his untimely death, never released but leaked on YouTube. Here’s a small clip of the new “U Can Call Me” with a snippet of the original one. Art work by @cassettehedz,” Daryl said in an Instagram post Monday morning (January 30).
As you can hear below, Daryl shared the OG version of the song, along with the all new 2023 version produced by him. Although the song was released in 2003 on Tupac’s “Better Dayz” album, unlike the 2003 version which was produced by Jazze Pha, Daryl will have his hands on the latest version.
