R U Still Down? (Remember Me) is the seventh album and second posthumous album by American rapper 2Pac, released in 1997 on Amaru Entertainment, Jive and Interscope Records. It is the first album by 2Pac to be finished without his creative input, and was overseen by his mother Afeni Shakur. This was the first release from Afeni's imprint Amaru Entertainment, a label that was set up to control 2Pac's posthumous releases.

Shortly after 2Pac was murdered in 1996, there were rumours that hundreds of unreleased songs remained in the vaults. After the release of his first posthumous album, The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory in late 1996, Afeni Shakur gained the rights to all of his unreleased recordings from both the Interscope and Death Row labels. This album contains previously unreleased material from the time period of his albums Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z...Thug Life: Volume 1 and Me Against the World. The album airs his views on life from a time before he became involved in the controversial East Coast-West Coast hip hop rivalry.

The album sold 549,000 copies in its first week, and reached multi-platinum status under a month. It topped the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart for three weeks in the United States. The album spawned two hits: "Do for Love" and "I Wonder If Heaven Got a Ghetto".
