The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory (commonly shortened to The 7 Day Theory or Makaveli) is the fifth and final studio album by American rapper Tupac Shakur. It was released on November 5, 1996, almost two months after his murder. Published under his new stage name Makaveli, on Death Row Records and Interscope Records, it was his first studio album to be posthumously released. The album was completely finished in a total of seven days during the first week of August 1996.[1] These are the last songs Shakur recorded before his fatal shooting on September 7, 1996. The album was originally scheduled for release in March 1997, but as a result of his death, producer Suge Knight released it four months earlier.

The album peaked at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 664,000 within its first week. By 1999, it was certified 4× platinum. The album was supported by three singles: “Toss It Up“, “To Live & Die in L.A” and “Hail Mary” .
