Locked up for: Three counts of sexual assault
Complex says: 2pac might have been going through the most stressful time of his short life when he was recording Me Against The World, but it only made his music that much more vital. With Me Against The World, Pac became the first artist with a No. 1 album while in jail. Beyond that, Me Against The World was also Pac's best (and least self-contradictory) album: A thematically unified masterpiece on which an overwhelmed, paranoid Pac curses the world, wishes to return to the innocence of childhood, and bares his soul like no rapper before or since. Eventually, Suge Knight bailed Pac out, he signed with Death Row, and you know the rest of the setup story.
