The 20 greatest West Coast hip-hop albums of all time

#2 Me Against the World by 2Pac (1995)


Often imitated, never duplicated. Recorded while 2Pac was in the midst of controversy and personal crisis, the hip-hop legend’s third album is somber, fatalistic and unflinchingly dark. But there’s very real catharsis in the music, and the result is one of the most introspective and moving hip-hop albums ever.
