"2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted" (sometimes referred to as "Gangsta Party") is a West Coast hip hop song written by 2Pac, Snoop Dogg and Daz Dillinger for 2Pac's 1996 double album All Eyez on Me. The song is a duet performed by 2Pac and Snoop Dogg. "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted" was released as promotional single and was the album's second single, after "California Love". The song peaked at number 46 on the US BillboardHot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart. It is often misconceived to be named "Gangsta Party" on video sharing sites such as YouTube, as if it uses the lyric ain't nuthin but a gangsta party very often in the choruses of the song.
The video was directed by one of 2Pac's production partners, Gobi M. Rahimi and was filmed four months prior to September 1996 shooting. The prelude for the song shows a parody of Biggie Smalls ("Piggie") and Puff Daddy ("Buff Daddy") in discussion with Shakur about the November 1994 shooting. The beginning of the scene where Tupac is speaking to Biggie is in reference to the movie Scarface where Tony speaks to his alleged killer before shooting him.
Snoop's first line in the song, "I keep my hand on my gun, 'cos they got me on the run" is a reference to "The Message" by Grandmaster Flash.
This song was played as tribute to 2Pac on the Up In Smoke Tour, in 2000, by Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg. They played this, along with 2 other songs, as tribute to 2Pac. The sample of 2Pac verse, is played with the crowd waving their hands, with their twos' in the air. On Snoop Dogg's verse, he raps it. On the chorus, Snoop Dogg has the crowd sing, "Say, 2Pac. Say we love you. We miss you."
