Yesterday (June 7), Tupac Shakur was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. West Coast radio icon Big Boy presented the star alongside 2Pac's sister, Sekyiwa "Set" Shakur, who released a statement about the event.

“We aren’t just honoring a star on the sidewalk; we are honoring the very essence of a person who fearlessly pursued his dreams and fought to turn them into reality. This is Tupac’s moment – the culmination of years of dedication and passion. Even before the world recognized his name, he dreamed of having a star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame. And today, the unveiling of Tupac’s star not only pays tribute to his contributions to the entertainment industry but also speaks volumes about his lasting impact, even after 25 years. I couldn’t be prouder of my brother to watch his star now shine even brighter.”

The star ceremony held special significance, coinciding with what would have been Tupac's 52nd birthday on June 16. Fans gathered to honor the artist whose influence continues to resonate even after his untimely passing. DJ Quik, The Outlawz, Ras Kass, Mike Epps, Allen Hughes, Mopreme Shakur, Above The Law, Money B, Treach, and more were on hand for the momentous occasion.

2Pac is the most recent Hip-Hop legend to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. LudacrisIce-T, and Salt-N-Pepa were also recently honored with stars.

In addition to receiving a star on the Walk of Fame, the actor/Hip-Hop legend who also had deep roots in Oakland, including his work with legendary Hip-Hop group Digital Underground and rap legend Ray Love, will have a street named in his honor.

Per OaklandSide, will rename one of its most prominent streets after 2Pac — the section of MacArthur Boulevard between Grand Avenue and Van Buren Avenue will now be known as "Tupac Shakur Way."
