Tricia Rose also demands sympathy and contrition from White Americans, calling upon them to face “the ways our nation has orchestrated a war on poor Black people.” She rejects the “claim that Black people have a sexually excessive and violent culture and that they lack proper values.” She insists that “the real sources of self-destructive behaviours” in Black communities can be traced to “centuries of compounded structural discrimination and institutional racism.”  White people may not intend to harm Black people, Rose concedes, but the oppressive structural dynamic of American society is driving young Blacks into a dark pit of despair and nothingness.
The release of DJ Shadow 's debut album Endtroducing..... in 1996 saw the beginnings of a movement in instrumental hip hop. Relying mainly on a combination of sampled funk , hip hop and film score , DJ Shadow's innovative sample arrangements influenced many producers and musicians. In the 2000s and 2010s, artists such as RJD2 , J Dilla , Pete Rock , MF Doom , Danny! , Nujabes , Madlib , Wax Tailor , DJ Babu , DJ Krush , Hermitude Swindali  and Blockhead have garnered critical attention with instrumental hip hop albums. Instrumental hip hop has yet to be fully recognized as a genre unto itself, and is often classified as trip hop , breakbeat hardcore , drum and bass , oldschool jungle , grime , trap , or industrial music . This may be a result of its varied and experimental nature; a single track can incorporate samples from many different genres of music. Due to the current state of copyright law, most instrumental hip-hop releases are released on small, independent labels. Producers often have difficulty obtaining clearance for the many samples found throughout their work, and labels such as Stones Throw are fraught with legal problems. [ citation needed ]

On February 13, 1996, Shakur released his fourth solo album, All Eyez on Me . This double album was the first and second of his three-album commitment to Death Row Records. It sold more than nine million copies.  The record was a general departure from the introspective subject matter of Me Against the World , being more oriented toward a thug and gangsta mentality. Shakur continued his recordings despite increasing problems at the Death Row label. Dr. Dre left his post as in-house producer to form his own label, Aftermath . Shakur continued to produce hundreds of tracks during his time at Death Row, most of which would be released on his posthumous albums Still I Rise , Until the End of Time , Better Dayz , Loyal to the Game and Pac's Life . He also began the process of recording an album, One Nation , with the New York-based Boot Camp Clik and their label Duck Down Records.
