Tupac is finally being recognized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It’s about time, since Pac is one of the greatest artists and entertainers in history. Pac is going to be one of 22 people honored by a star, and we’re only surprised that it didn’t happen sooner.
It’s 17-years after Tupac’s death and he’s sold 75 million albums worldwide and will never be forgotten. If only the artists of today would learn from Tupac, hip-hop would be better off altogether.
Shakur, who recorded music as 2Pac, will be awarded his star for his recording career. After touring as a roadie and dancer for Digital Underground, he earned his first major national notoriety when he appeared on Digital Underground’s 1991 single “Same Song,” which was featured in the film Nothing But Trouble. Later that year, Shakur released his debut album, 2Pacalypse Now. The 13-cut collection featured the singles “Trapped,” which discussed police brutality, and “Brenda’s Got A Baby,” which focused on a 12-year-old girl who became pregnant after being sexually abused.
