2Pac - Ghetto Gospel ( music videos )

"Ghetto Gospel" is a song by rapper Tupac Shakur, which was originally released as the second single on his posthumous 2004 album Loyal to the Game. It samples Elton John's 1971 hit, "Indian Sunset" and reached #1 in John's native United Kingdom.

The song was written by Tupac Shakur as an outcry to "end the war on the streets", addressing the futility of racial difference and dissidence, particularly under the unifying banner of poverty. The Loyal To The Game version was produced by Eminem, but the original was leaked on 12 October 2011. It had a faster tempo, extra 3rd & 4th verses and was 4:35 longer. It also did not contain the "Indian Sunset" sample. "Ghetto Gospel" was the only song on Loyal to the Game with an accompanying music video. At the very end of the video there is a message from his mother, Afeni Shakur, saying "remember to keep yourself alive, there is nothing more important than that". The original version of the track was produced by Big D The Impossible, a regular producer from 2Pac's first two albums: 2Pacalypse Now and Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z. sessions.
