TeeRoy's 2 Cents:
- Better late than never!
- It's a tragedy that it took a certified West Coast legend like Tupac this long to get his own star.
- Ok, now it's time to add a star for Biggie, too.
- The star reflects not only Tupac's musical contributions but his contributions to cinema and poetry as well.
Tupac will be honored next week with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Variety reports that on Wednesday, June 7th, a star with Pac’s name will be the 2,758th added to the world-famous strip. The accolade comes on the heels of the premiere of the new FX docuseries Dear Mama, which some, like Chance the Rapper, have called one of the best documentaries ever made. There was also a street in Oakland dedicated to ‘Pac last month.
Walk of Fame organizer Ana Martinez notes that Tupac was selected for inclusion all the way back in 2013, but that it took most of the last decade for his estate to set a date.
