Me Against the World resurfaces on 180 gram double LP. Hard to believe it’s been 25 years since this dropped. Written asTupacwas embroiled in controversy, this was the final project recorded before his affiliation withDeath Row. While there are so many classics, the often-overlooked tracks have always slayed me the most. Conceptualized during the filming ofAbove the Rim, TheEasy Mo Bee-produced “Temptations” is such a perfect time capsule of 90s Rap/R&B styles. During my heavyWildstyle-era hip hop obsession I used to get too hyped listening to Pac rap about the nascent NYC rap scene on “Old School”. Last but not least, “Death Around The Corner” captures the rawness of Pac’s defiant gangster persona; compared to earlier tracks like “Dear Mama”, it’s this duality that humanizes 2Pac’s complex and dualistic identity. Recommended.
