Mama checking in my bedroom, I ain't there

from 2Pac (Ft. Outlawz) – Hail Mary Lyrics on Rap Genius


Very emotional image here. Tupac has some large talent with lyrics. His mom is obviously worried about her son and she is checking on him but he has left into the streets.

This line is allegorical with Makaveli in place of the figure of Jesus Christ. Jesus was put into a tomb and his wounds were cleaned after he was crucified, he later died in that tomb and 3 days after he was no longer there; he rose from the dead. The bedroom symbolises the tomb, his absence refers to resurrection of christ i.e. death of 2Pac and the rebirth into Makaveli.(exit 2Pac Enter Makaveli)
