Celebrating 2Pac’s Me Against The World 18th Anniversary


2Pac was born on June 16, 1971 and died on September 13, 1996, but his legacy was birthed on March 14, 1995. On this day 18 years ago, Pac’s third studio album, Me Against The World, was released and rap hasn’t been the same since. Because of this album and the controversy surrounding it, critics and fans have used the work as a litmus test for “realness” in rap. With Me Against The World, Pac took the opportunity to address his many run-ins with the law, his feelings towards friends-turned-enemies, paranoia and even his own mortality. The fact that his words were backed up by the truth via news headlines resonated with people around the world, making it his definitive body of work. To celebrate its impact here is a list of tidbits that make this album one of the most influential of all time.
