2Pac is unquestionably the most influential and enigmatic hip hop titan of all time, and Me Against the World is the moment he had crossed over into this realm. Unlike many of his contemporaries who celebrated the lifestyle drugs and violence, 2Pac used his third album as a moment of reflection on how he had reached this point in his life.
