AllMusic Review by

Nu Mixx Classics, Vol. 2 (Evolution: Duets and Remixes) is another in a long line of shameless attempts by Death Row to monetize its 2Pac back catalog, in this case by remixing previously released material and incorporating guest raps by the Outlawz and Kurupt. No one needs this album (after all, who out there is itching to hear a "rock remix" of "Hail Mary" with lame hard rock guitars?). All it does is further disgrace the Death Row brand name. Not even the most passionate 2Pac fan will find much, if anything, to enjoy here. Rather, anyone who is a true 2Pac fan should be disgusted by the appropriation of the deceased rapper's legacy for cheap cash-ins like this, where more craft went into the packaging than the music. It's downright maddening that junk CDs like this continue to see the light of day, regardless of whether or not anyone buys them.
