This apology to Black women in general and to his sister and mother in particular draws heavily from Shakur's roots in the Black Panther movement. The singing is pleasantly amateurish, and Pac speechifies throughout the song, as if at a rally. For obvious reasons, the rape trial took its toll on Pac's image as a fairly pro-woman conscious rapper.
In response, he crafted humble tributes to those who bear society's greatest burdens: Political prisoners, mothers and children, the have-nots. Even with his militant perspective, Pac again proves himself a potent voice against injustice of all sort. Listening to tracks like these makes us wonder what this world might have been like had Pac survived his addiction to gangster glamour.
