Unflinching and morose, Pac faces his afterlife. Not only does he—once again—foretell his own death, he also accepts his spot in hell. Where he will burn eternally. He lays out his demons and, most strikingly, confesses: “I'm suicidal so don't stand near me/My every move is a calculated step, to bring me closer to embrace an early death.” Spooky business. Such lyrics are also the birthplace of several half-baked conspiracy theories.
