"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, one even shooting at him. He then fires back and says he did it because he was tired of constantly being profiled and abused by police officers. 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.
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.Around the time the music video was debuting, Tupac was assaulted by the Oakland Police Department after he cursed at them for demeaning his name and prolonging the issuing of a ticket sustained during a jaywalking incident.
