Before I close my eyes I fantasize I'm livin well
When I awake and realize I'm just a prisoner in hell

from 2Pac (Ft. Dramacydal) – Outlaw Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Pac dreams of a life where he lives an easy life and away from his current life. He feels like he’s in hell because he feels miserable and lives in a dangerous place full of bad guys.

This form of despair and hatred for the life of a black man in America is prevalent throughout Pac’s catalog.
