Hip Hop Pays Tribute To Tupac On 20th Anniversary Of His Death
Twenty years ago today, Hip Hop lost a legend. Tupac Amaru Shakur was pronounced dead on September 13, 1996, after being shot days earlier on the Las Vegas strip.
His music, poetry, acting and voice against social injustices served as an example for countless artists that came after him.
After being portrayed in the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton, Makaveli is set to get his own movie, All Eyez On Me. A new trailer for the film was released today in honor of the 20th anniversary of his passing.
Several took to social media today to pay tribute to the West Coast legend. Whether it was Public Enemy sharing a picture of Tupac with Chuck D, Paris reflecting on his time working with ‘Pac, or Tyga honoring his father figure, each person had fond memories.
