In honor of the 25th anniversary of 2Pac’s album, Me Against The World, Interscope Records, and Amaru Entertainment reissued the hit record on vinyl over the weekend and we can not wait to get our hands on one!
Debuting this same month 25 years ago, the album debuted #1 on the Billboard 200 and landed in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the Definitive 200 Albums of All Time list. This iconic project gave us the famous song, ‘Dear Mama,’ that was nominated for Best Rap Album at the Grammy Awards in 1996, as well as many other well know tracks like, ‘So Many Tears,’ and ‘Temptations.’
Recording the album at only 23 years old, you can hear his intelligent perspective on living through violence, poverty and police oppression told through poetry like lyrics. Topics some rarely talked about but one of the many reasons why he’s hailed as a one of the greatest rappers in history.
The double-platinum album is being re-released on 180-gram LP vinyl and you can pre-order it here! Watch the ‘Dear Mama’ video below and tell us your favorite 2Pac song on Facebook or send us a tweet over @thehoneypop!
