"Pac's Life" is a single by Tupac Shakur from his posthumously released album of the same name. Produced by L. T. Hutton, it includes guest appearances from R&B singer Ashanti and fellow American rapper T.I. The second Tupac verse was recycled from a song titled "This Life I Lead". That song was released as part of the Pac's Life album in 2006. T.I. said in an interview that working on a Tupac song was an honor, as he idolized him while growing up. The song was a top ten hit in Ireland and a number 21 hit in the UK.

The single peaked at #1 on the Billboard Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles in the December 2, 2006 issue of Billboard magazine.

On MTV Australia, "Pac's Life" peaked at the number 1 spot on the Hip Hop Countdown, beating new releases from Jay-Z, Eminem and 50 Cent, and Nas.

The original version of the song samples Prince's "Pop Life" and is a minute and 34 seconds in duration, with some speculating it might have been cut off when it was initially leaked. It first features Tupac's verse and Tupac singing the hook.
