Tupac’s estate to release ‘Me Against The World’ anniversary merch
The merch is currently available for pre-order.
Tupac Shakur’s estate will be selling merchandise in honor of the 25th anniversary of the late rapper’s Me Against The World album.
The collection will include vinyl copies of the album, which he recorded at age 23 while facing a prion sentence, according to Complex. “Me Against the World was really to show people that this is an art to me. That I do take it like that. And whatever mistakes I make, I make out of ignorance, not out of disrespect to music or the art,” the rapper said about the album while in prison, which is when it was released.
He continued, “So Me Against the World was deep, reflective. It was like a blues record. It was down-home. It was all my fears, all the things I just couldn’t sleep about. Everybody thought that I was living so well and doing so good that I wanted to explain it. And it took a whole album to get it all out. It’s explaining my lifestyle, who I am, my upbringing and everything. It talks about the streets but talks about it in a different light. There’s a song on there dedicated to mothers, just a song I wrote just for my mother. And it digs deeper like that. I just wanted to do wanted to something for all mothers. I’m proud of that song. It affected a lot of people.”
The anniversary merch will consist of three graphic t-shirts, a pullover hoodie with the album’s tracklist on the back and the album in vinyl form. The prices for the items range between $30 and $96. The merch is currently available on Pac’s online store for pre-order and is expected to ship out next month.
On another note, an upcoming film on the rapper titled, 2Pac: The Great Escape From UMC, claims that he is alive and hiding in New Mexico. According to XXL, Las Vegas filmmaker Rick Boss spoke of the film to KTNV Las Vegas and said, “This movie is about Tupac actually escaping from University Medical Center here in Vegas and relocating to New Mexico [and] getting protection from the Navajo tribe.”
The film will also reenact the September 1996 shooting, which landed 2Pac in a Vegas hospital. He died six days later, however, in Boss’ film, he alleges that Tupac devised a plan to escape to Mexico. He also said that ‘Pac used a lookalike to replace him in Suge Knight’s car because he had been tipped off about the plan that had been devised to kill him.
