    Iconic rapper/actor Tupac Shakur will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Variety reports that Hollywood Walk of Fame committee chairman David Green announced that Shakur will receive a posthumous star on the Walk of Fame in 2014. Green made the announcement at Jennifer Lopez‘s Walk of Fame ceremony this week. Tupac will be honored for his musical career.

    Shakur shot to fame in the early-to-mid 1990s after being discovered and recruited by Digital Underground’s Shock G and releasing his debut album, 2Pacalypse Now, in late 1991. A string of major movie roles also raised his profile, including critically-acclaimed turns in films like Juice and Poetic Justice. Shakur was shot and killed in Las Vegas at the age of 25 in September of 1996.

    Since his death, he’s become the most mythologized and revered hip-hop star of his generation.

    Forget "hollywood" their recognition is unimportant. This brother was more than just "crack dealer and sex offender". His brilliance got twisted around somehow. Tupac was only 25 when he died. 17 years since his death, he could have easily reserved all that bad energy that was out there when he was rapper. Hate the game not the player, a game which I think you're playing.

    What did you do time for? Do people still refer to you as the loser who did time or do they respect you for what you do now?
