Me and My Girlfriend

Me and My Girlfriend

2Pac

“Me and My Girlfriend” is a metaphorical song, where 2Pac refers to his gun as his girlfriend, using personification as a figure of speech.

Young Noble, a member of Pac’s Outlawz group, has explained that the main inspiration for this track was the Nas song “I Gave You Power” where he raps from the perspective of a gun.

The Beatles“Happiness is a Warm Gun” also talks about a gun as a girl.

Tupac recorded this song on July 29, 1996, less than six weeks before the Las Vegas tragedy. Another song on the album, “Life of an Outlaw,” was also recorded the same day according to the dates written on the masters.
