Tupac Shakur was officially cemented among the stars as he posthumously received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 

Tupac Shakur has officially been honoured with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame – nearly 27 years after he was murdered. The rapper, who died age 25 after being gunned down on 7 September 1996 in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas, got his place on the walk of fame Wednesday, a little shy of what would have been his 52nd birthday. Among the speakers at the event was his younger sister, Sekyiwa ‘Set’ Shakur – who was presented with a resolution by the City of Los Angeles honouring the work the late performer did in the community – radio legend, Big Boy, and Dear Mama director Allen Hughes.
