Remembering the LIFE and LEGACY of #TupacShakur! [videos]

Tupac Shakur’s lyrics are still very present today just as they were when he was here with us. The lyrics, “How Long Will They Mourn Me,” are forever a historical piece of poetry that will never be forgotten. So it’s only right that he is still such an icon in todays’ pop culture scene.

Wednesday, September 13 – today – marks the 21th anniversary of the day the rapper was fatally shot at the age of 25 after attending a Mike Tyson heavyweight championship fight in Las Vegas. Although that horrible shooting stole one of the most influential stars of hip hop to date, the THUG LIFE emcee incredibly influenced a fleet of artist that are still using his samples or snippets of his lyrics in rap culture today.

During his lifetime, 2pac released multi-platinum albums and was nominated for Grammy awards including Best Rap Album for 1995's "Me Against the World" and 1996's "All Eyez on Me."

21 years after his death, Tupac is still credited as a major influence for current hip-hop music, regularly immortalized in lyrics and tribute songs. Today we REMEMBER the LIFE and LEGACY that Pac left us and that is STILL so OMNIPRESENT in HIP HOP TODAY. Tupac's INFLUENCE will FOREVER be ETCHED in the annals of POP CULTURE! So today we TRIBUTE one of the GREATEST POETS there ever was.

MORE TUPAC after the JUMP!
