About this album

The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory (commonly shortened to The 7 Day Theory or Don Killuminati and sometimes called Makaveli) is the fifth and final studio album by Tupac Shakur. Released under the new stage name Makaveli, it was his first studio album to be posthumously released.The album was completely finished in a total of seven days during the month of August 1996. The lyrics were written and recorded in only three days and mixing took an additional four days. These are among the very last songs Shakur recorded before his fatal shooting on September 7, 1996. The album was originally due for release in March 1997, but due to his death, Suge Knight released it four months earlier.
In 2005, MTV.com ranked The 7 Day Theory at #9 on their greatest hip hop albums of all time list[9] and, in 2006, recognized it as a classic. The emotion and anger showcased on the album has been admired by a large part of the hip-hop community, including other rappers. Ronald “Riskie” Brent is the creator of The 7 Day Theory cover painting. George “Papa G” Pryce, Former Head of Publicity for Death Row, claimed that “Makaveli which we did was a sort of tongue-in-cheek, and it was not really to come out, after Tupac was murdered, it did come out… Before that, it was going to be a sort of an underground.” The album peaked at number one on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and the Billboard 200.The album generated the second-highest debut-week sales total of any album that year,selling 664,000 within its first week in stores. The album was certified 3x platinum in April 1997 and then 4x Platinum on June 15, 1999.
