2Pac: Me Against the World

Me Against the World

Me Against the WorldIs it just me or does every 2Pac song sound exactly the same? Something about the step-slide-step beat, that exact same tempo, and his trademark cadence makes his tunes about drug dealin’, shootin’ and niggas blend together like milk in a pot of cream. I mean, how many times can you use the word “cemetery” in a song? (And why would you want to, what with it not rhyming with practically anything?) Between the contradictions–I love women/I hate bitches, guns and drugs are bad/people who use guns and sell drugs are good–and some seriously candy-ass tracks, I’m not sure what the hype is about. Wasn’t this the goofy, smiling dude from the Digital Underground video?
