Nineteen years ago today Tupac Shakur died. Today, 2 Pac’s official website has published a note from Kendrick Lamar honoring the late legendary rapper. It reads: “I was 8 yrs old when I first saw you. I couldn’t describe how I felt at that moment. So many emotions. Full of excitement. Full of joy and eagerness. 20 yrs later I understand exactly what that feeling was.

INSPIRED.

The people that you touched on that small intersection changed lives forever. I told myself I wanted to be a voice for man one day. Whoever knew I was speaking out loud for u to listen”.

Thank you.
