The cops on top of me
“On top” refers to being looked upon as a dangerous person (i.e. a criminal)… especially when the police are around.
Because Tupac possesses a so-called, “thug-like” attire and supposedly looks “suspicious”, the cops are going to be watching him more carefully than the “common person”.
*One could also take this part of the line and interpret it as his use of what it feels like to be a Black man (since they’ve been targeted by cops and put in jail at a harsher punishment and at a much higher ratio than Whites).
