And I want everybody to view my autopsy
So you can see exactly where the government had shot me
He is comparing his eventual assassination to either the JFK or Tupac assassinations. The official report of JFK’s death (known as the Magic Bullet Theory) by the Warren Commission had many glaring faults in it. The conspiracy in the next line also refers to this. There is also much mystery surrounding Tupac’s murder regarding governmental cover up. Also, Tupac predicted his assassination several years earlier, hence “my fate is inevitable” in the next line. .

Since he was talking about Africa in the line above, these line can remind one about the South African anti-apartheid activist Steven Biko, who died in 1977 due to police brutality while in custody. .
The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.
