Tupac To Receive Star On Hollywood Walk of Fame

Tupac To Receive Star On Hollywood Walk of Fame

Just a few weeks before the late rapper’s 52nd birthday, it has been announced that Tupac will finally earn a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

On Wednesday, Variety revealed that the rapper would receive the 2,758th star on June 7 at his star ceremony on Hollywood BLVD.

Pac’s star will be presented by his sister Sekyiwa “Set” Shakur and West Coast radio legend Big Boy.

This has been a long time coming for the legendary California rapper turned activist, who was known for his multi-platinum albums and his 90’s movie roles like JuicePoetic JusticeAbove the Rim, and Gridlock.

In addition to his Hollywood star, the rapper will also have a street in Oakland named after him.

Between Grand Avenue and Van Buren Avenue, a section of MacArthur Boulevard will be renamed “Tupac Shakur Way.”

“Tupac Shakur’s legacy will continue through his contributions in art and social outreach, through his family and fans, touching countless lives of children and elders over the years while alive and after his death, taken too young by gun violence,” read the resolution for the street name change.
