Tupac Shakur is one of the most famous rappers of all time, and so it may seem surprising to find out that he has only just received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Yesterday, June 7, Shakur’s sister represented her late brother when he received his posthumous star. “Tupac knew deep down that he was always meant for something big,” he said. she said. “From the first time he set foot on the stage of the Apollo Theater at age 13, before anyone recognized his name, he knew he had the dream of having a star on the Walk of Fame here.”
Shakur was unfortunately killed in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas at the age of 25. The crime was never solved, leading to several conspiracy theories over the years, including some that claim the rapper is in fact alive.
