The hip-hop community, and the music industry at large, is taking to social media today (September 13) to share memories, new interviews and touching tributes to someone who changed the world forever in just 25 years on this planet.
Tupac Shakur, who is fondly referred to by his stage name 2Pac, is celebrated today, on what is now the 20th year anniversary since he passed away six days after being shot in a drive-by shooting back in 1996.
With many touching on the iconic rapper’s influence on him or her, both personally and on hip-hop culture as we know and love it, it’s clear that 2Pac’s legacy is alive and well all these years later.
As our timelines are being appropriately filled with those paying homage, we took a moment to round-up some of our favorite tributes, penned by the likes of Nas, The Game, DJ Khaled, Snoop Dogg and more.
Take a look at some of the love being thrown 2Pac’s way in the posts below.
