MARCH 14, 1995 – Tupac Shakur released his third studio album Me Against The World 24 years ago today. Recorded shortly after his near fatal assassination attempt in New York City, the explosive project is often considered the late Hip Hop legend’s most personal and introspective album. Themes of poverty, struggles with police and his impending prison sentence dominate the 15-track album.
In fact, by the time it was released, 2Pac was already behind bars on sexual assault charges. Despite his incarceration, Me Against The World debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart thanks in part to singles such as “Dear Mama,” “So Many Tears” and “Temptations.”
