Product Description

The gruesome details surrounding Tupac's third solo offering are enough to give any music fan the willies. Released when Tupac was in jail serving time for a rape conviction and just after his recovery from being shot-up gangland-style at a recording studio, this was his most introspective piece of work to date. The heavy-hearted album opens up with a radio commentary describing the circumstances surrounding his shooting, and then plunges headfirst into Pac's infatuation with death. "So Many Tears", "Death Around the Corner" and "If I Die 2Nite" are all dark, eerily prophetic tunes that lend credence to widespread theories which suggest that Pac anticipated his impending death. The perpetually thugged-out wonder reveals a more benevolent side when it comes to gender and family issues. On "Dear Mama"--a fitting tribute to his mother recorded in the "Keep Ya Head Up" vein--Pac takes listeners into the loving recesses of his heart, while on "Can U Get Away", he echoes similar respectful sentiments to black womynkind. This is probably 'Pac's most progressive issues-oriented release before he signed to Death Row and became a full-blown thug. --Dalton Higgins

There are two reviews below this one that contain mindless, idiotic insults directed at 2Pac. This is directed at them. It never ceases to amaze me how stupid some kids (yes, I said KIDS) really are. Unfortunately, youth tend to throw up boundaries among themselves based upon personal tastes (music, clothes, etc.) and then call each other inferior based upon them, and the people below are examples of such stupid kids. Clearly, said kids have serious personal problems and need a way to vent their anger, because it is the only explanation for their behavior. Making fun of people doesn't do anything except make you look stupid. And neither does whining about what's really "music" and what's not.
Using exaggerated, foolish stereotypes of "ebonics" usage, they claim all rap fans are stupid posers trying to be cool, and that they're happy 2Pac has died. And yet they expect us to believe they're the ones who are smart and mature, and that all rap fans are dumb. Does anybody who really is mature (and by that, I do NOT mean some zit-faced high school kid) see the contradiction in that logic? Then, they proclaim that rock and metal are the only types of music that involve talent, and that rap is just "talking fast". Anybody who has listened to hip-hop seriously knows just how much talent it really takes to rap, and 2Pac is one of the finest rappers that ever lived. What's even more idiotic is that one of the stupid kids below (the dumber of the two) tried to claim he's read 2Pac's lyrics, when he obviously hasn't. If somebody ever played "So Many Tears" or "Dear Mama" and asked him to call that "talking fast", he would have nothing to say. He'd just stand there looking like the foolish, naive child he is.

1 - Intro: This is just a drum beat over several newscasters talking about what happened to Tupac so I usually skip over it.
2 - If I Die 2nite: My favorite song on the album, the rhymes really flow, the beat doesn't seem forced, and the even though the chorus is sort of minimalistic, it sounds really good. My only complaint is when 2pac says at the end kill kill kill, murda murda murda. This "growl" at the end doesn't keep the rest of the tone of the song. - 9/10
3 - Me Against the World: A very competent song, the beat is ok but its nothing special. The rhymes flow like always, and the chorus is ok. It's basically talking about how Tupac is against the world. It's not bad, but it's not great. - 7/10
4 - So Many Tears: Excellent song almost on the level of If I Die Tonight. Talking about whether Tupac would get into heaven and how he's so tired of "the game". I love the beat and the harmonica in the chorus. Because Ja Rule can't make any good beats on his own, the beat from this song was jacked by him, Nas, and Ashanti in the Pledge Remix. I don't know if it's in the original but it really makes me mad that they took an anti - gangsta beat and made it into a gangsta song. Pac was real, you are not Mr. Rule! - 8.5/10
5 - Temptations - This is a good song talking about how Pac is a player and he can't really settle down ever. Excellent chorus saying, "I know you've been searching for someone...". For some reason though, I find my self skipping over this song. I don't know why. - 7/10
6 - Young N***AZ - This a cool track with an instresting beat about a topic I haven't really heard any other rapper talk about before. I like the guys voice in the chorus. - 8/10
7 - Heavy in the Game - Ugh... one of the few bad songs. I hate the womans voice in the beginning.

Not including his post-humous albums, Tupac Shakur released six masterpiece albums during his lifetime. This album, "Me Against The World" (his 4th project, 3rd solo album) is one of his most outstanding efforts, and one of the greatest rap albums ever recorded. How anyone can give this album less than 5 stars I will never figure out.
Much of the album was recorded in 94', when he was going through perhaps the most turmoil in his career. Official release date was March 1995. It was during this time he had many run-ins with the law and his music was being scrutinzed by the media. But this album really shows another side of Pac, a side that many chose to ignore. This is a very deep, sentimenal, and poetic album. Its starts off with an intro of newscasts reporting on some of his legal trouble, and then heads into one of his darkest and most powerful songs ever, the prophetic "If I Die 2Nite". This song sets the tone for the album.
There are many different types of songs on here, but all of them have a deep message in one way or another. "Dear Mama", the biggest hit off the album, is one of his greatest songs ever. The sheer emotion of it alone will make ANYONE feel this track, while the song "Old School" pays tribute to the founders of hip hop. Perhaps the best written song on the album though, and one of the best written songs in hip hop PERIOD, is "So Many Tears". Through four incredible verses, the listener is taken through the mind of a man who has lost all hope. This track is as close to a suicide letter as you can get, yet it has the power to uplift. The Stevie Wonder sample works very well also. Other great tracks include "Heavy In the Game", "Death Around the Corner", and the disturbing "Lord Knows".
