“Wanted Dead or Alive” is a collaboration song by Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, & Daz Dillinger, released as a single from the Gridlock’d (Original Soundtrack). It was made into a video. The video showed the cops trying to catch Snoop Dogg and clips of the deceased rapper Tupac Shakur. The storyline is similar to “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted”. The video is directed by Scott Kalvert.

Gridlock’d Facts:
Gridlock’d is a 1997 film starring Tupac Shakur, Tim Roth, and Thandie Newton. It was the directorial debut of Vondie Curtis-Hall, who also wrote the story and screenplay. The film’s opening was relatively low, despite critical acclaim for its powerful and gritty substance. Its opening weekend netted $3,603,049 and it finished finally at only $5.5 million. The film paid tribute to star Tupac Shakur who had been murdered several months before the film’s release.

Set in Detroit, Heroin addicts Spoon (Tupac Shakur) and Stretch (Tim Roth) decide to kick their habit after their best friend and bandmate, Cookie (Thandie Newton), overdoses on her first hit. Throughout a disastrous day, the two addicts dodge police and local criminals while struggling with an apathetic government bureaucracy that bars their entrance into a rehabilitation program.

— In her review for The New York Times, Janet Maslin praised Shakur’s performance: “He played this part with an appealing mix of presence, confidence and humor”. Desson Howe, in his review for the Washington Post, wrote, “Shakur and Roth, who seem born for these roles, are allowed to take charge – and have fun doing it”. USA Today gave the film three out of four stars and felt that Hall had not “latched onto a particularly original notion of city blight. But he knows how to mine the humor in such desperation”. Entertainment Weekly gave the film “B” rating and Owen Gleiberman wrote, “Gridlock’d doesn’t have the imaginative vision of a movie like Trainspotting, yet it’s more literally true to the haphazard torpor of the junkie life than anything we’ve seen on screen since Drugstore Cowboy … Curtis Hall has caught the bottom-feeder enervation of heroin addiction”.[ —
