Dem Vinyl Boyz EP 17 - Me Against The World
Dem Vinyl Boyz are back again and this week they’re dropping the needle on ‘Me Against The World’ a hip-hop album by arguably the greatest rapper of all time Tupac. It’s an amazing, cohesive body of work that completely illustrates all the nuances that made up the complicated persona of Pac. His previous works showed flashes of brilliance, but Me Against the World became a manifestation of his artistic vision and his ongoing evolution as a Black man in America during the 90s. “Dear Mama” released as the lead single on the album peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100, going platinum, which earned him a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Solo Performance. The song describes his poverty-stricken childhood, his mother’s drug addiction, and her triumph against insurmountable odds.
