On his third album, the stressed-out California poet turned a critical eye from his bleak surroundings to his own conflicted psyche. Me Against the World marks 2Pac’s official shift from gangsta to philosopher, sacrificing none of the rebellion. He imparts bittersweet brotherly advice over glossy G-funk ( Young N z ), spits sincere thug love ballads ( Temptations ) and dodges haunting premonitions of his own death on the bluesy So Many Tears. And then there’s Dear Mama, the best rap song about moms ever made. Me Against the World 2Pac.
2Pac faced jail time for a sexual assault charge when he recorded Me Against the World; he was also shot by unknown assailants in the fall of 1994. Amidst all the controversy, he made his first great album. The music was angry, reflective and despondent, and he asked for sympathy with blues laments like "It Ain't Easy," "So Many Tears" and the lovely tribute "Dear Mama. On the suicidal "Lord Knows," 2Pac worried that he would meet an untimely end. But if his often self-inflicted problems helped make classics like Me Against the World, then perhaps.
