Me Against the World is 2Pac’s third studio album, released on March 14, 1995 through Interscope Records. This album was created in 1994, the year he was shot outside Quad Recording Studios in New York City (as discussed on the intro) and sent to prison. Many critics feel this album was arguably his best due to the introspection he displays throughout the album

Me Against the World is the third studio album by American rapper 2Pac, released on March 14, 1995 by Out Da Gutta/Interscope Records. Drawing lyrical inspiration from his impending prison sentence, troubles with the police, and poverty, the album is described as being 2Pac's most introspective album.

2Pac faced jail time for a sexual assault charge when he recorded Me Against the World; he was also shot by unknown assailants in the fall of 1994. Amidst all the controversy, he made his first great album. The music was angry, reflective and despondent, and he asked for sympathy with blues laments like "It Ain't Easy," "So Many Tears" and the lovely tribute "Dear Mama. On the suicidal "Lord Knows," 2Pac worried that he would meet an untimely end.
