Thug Immortal is a great fan wanna-have...
27 April 2005 | by (South-Limburg, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Like my title says: Thug Immortal is a great fan wanna-have... but if you must choose, go for Thug Angel. Much Better.

Anyways, Thug Immortal contains some great footage that I did not see before which was nice, like the episode about the Jungle, his temporarily home when he first came up in the industry.

Really, don't expect to be surprised by this DVD, its more like an overview about events the real fan already knows. Another downside is that there are no real performances on this DVD, on thing I would have liked to see.

If you already have Thug Angel and just want to have every thing about Shakur, this is really a nice collectors item, if only so you can place it on a shelf.
