Trapped is a song by 2Pac that deals with police brutality. It was a single from his debut album, 2Pacalypse Now. The first verse tells a story of 2Pac being harassed by the police, and one even shooting at him. He then fires back and says he did it, because he would be ridiculed by girls if he didn’t. 2Pac then depicts the police chasing after him and eventually cornering him. He then ends the song with the line “I’d rather die then be trapped in the living hell”, implying if forced into a corner he would rather die than live life in a cell. Around the time the music video was debuting, Tupac was assaulted by the Oakland Police Department after he cussed at them for demeaning his name and prolonging the issuing of a ticket sustained during a jaywalking incident.

The music video features Shock G singing part of the song’s chorus and depicts 2Pac in jail. It appeared as a bonus on the DVD for Tupac: Resurrection.

The song samples “Holy Ghost” by Bar-Kays and “The Spank” by James Brown

“Trapped” was featured on 2Pac’s Greatest Hits in 1998.
