"Temptations" is a song by rapper Tupac Shakur, released as the third single from his third album, Me Against the World. The song was produced by Easy Mo Bee. Its music video featured cameos from fellow West Coast rappers, Ice-T, Coolio, Shock-G, B-Real and Warren G, as well as Salt-N-Pepa, Treach, Bill Bellamy, Marcus Chong, Isaac Hayes, Crystal Waters, Jasmine Guy, and Jada Pinkett Smith. Tupac couldn't be in the video for the song because he was incarcerated. The song was moderately successful in the United States, peaking at #13 on the U.S. Rap chart, #35 on the U.S. Hip Hop/R&B chart and #68 on the Billboard Hot 100.
It samples "Sing a Simple Song" by Sly & the Family Stone, "Watch Yo Nuggets" by Redman and "Computer Love" by Zapp.
"Temptations" was included on 2Pac's Greatest Hits album in 1998.
The song can also be heard in the movie "8 Mile", starring Eminem, after the first battle, towards the end of the movie.
