Also on the single are vocals from Danny Boy the soul singer who provided the hook for the song.
” I ain’t mad at cha ” looks back at 2Pac’s life and how it went through changes from when he was young to when he found fame. He sings about losing touch with people and how many turned on him when success came.
Despite this 2Pac insists that he has only ” nothing but love ” for his friends with Danny Boy’s hook emphasizing the fact with the repeating of ” I ain’t mad at cha “.
New lyrics replaced the original version for more mainstream release with 2Pac talking about the struggle with life, a message to God and a life after death.

” I ain’t mad at cha ” was a success when released as a single in the United Kingdom with a peak position of number thirteen on the UK charts.
