In 2013, news of plans for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Tupac was in place. For reasons unknown, the plans seized. Sources tell us that despite the news coverage, Tupac receiving a star was not even close to official.

When he died, Tupac was only twenty-five but achieved so much by that age. What he accomplished in those years was truly amazing.

Afeni and Mutulu’s heavy involvement with the Black Panther movement paved the way for Tupac’s revolutionary ways. This upbringing would shape Tupac’s lyrical content, giving a voice and power to his community and the voiceless.
