Death Around the Corner (4:08)

Cover of Me Against the World

From Me Against the World and 5 other releases

In ‘95, 2Pac was in the darkest period of his life. He was accused of a rape that he didn’t commit, set up, shot and robbed by his best friends and constantly being surrounded by the police. Through all of this confusion, Pac made the most prophetic and haunting song of all time.

In his city, which has a crazy-high death rate, any one could die at any minute. Therefore, 2Pac is paranoid that his time is coming. Unfortunately, this song was dropped in 95’, like an omen, one year before 2Pacs untimely death.

    Excellent song, drenched in misery and paranoia. You know a song is good when an artist is sending real death threats to their father.
