Tupac's star, the 2,758th on Hollywood Boulevard, represents a long-awaited recognition. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce had selected him unanimously in 2013, but it took a decade for the honor to materialize. The ceremony welcomed special guests like Mike Epps, YG, Mopreme Shakur (Tupac's stepbrother and fellow rapper), and Money-B.

In addition to this recent accolade, Tupac was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, and the Grammy Museum showcased an exhibit dedicated to his life and work titled "All Eyez on Me" in 2015. In 2022, The Canvas @ L.A. Live paid tribute to the late rapper, poet, actor, and activist through the immersive experience "Wake Me When I'm Free."
Tupac's sister, Sekyiwa, expressed her pride and emphasized the significance of this moment, acknowledging that her brother had always aspired to have a star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The unveiling of Tupac's star not only honors his contributions to the entertainment industry but also symbolizes his enduring impact, even after 25 years. It serves as a testament to Tupac's unwavering pursuit of his dreams and his lasting legacy.
