Me Against the World allowed us all to enter the realm of Pac’s innermost thoughts. The album kicks off with audio snippets of news anchors reporting his legal troubles and controversial instances. It then progresses to a deeper area of his subconscious. Thoughts of poverty, broken friendships…even death over serious beats is what we got to hear. As complex as he was, he was real.

Chris Rock is no stranger to using his celebrity platform to address and identify cases of racial profiling and mistreatment.

During an episode of Seinfield’s, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, the two entertainers were pulled over by the police for speeding to which Rock, part-jokingly, said: “If you weren’t here, I’d be scared. Yeah, I’m famous – still Black. Right now, I’m looking for my license right now.”
Chilling truth to Rock’s statement.
Recently, Rock has been documenting his run-ins with police. So far? He’s been pulled over by cops three times [...]
