Tupac Shakur has finally received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Today, a ceremony was held in honor of the late icon joining the growing list of rappers to receive a Hollywood star. The ceremony was hosted by Big Boy, and Tupac's sister, Sekyiwa "Set" Shakur, accepted the star on his behalf. The event also featured speeches from Tupac's godfather Jamal Joseph and the director of the recent Dear Mama docuseries, Allen Hughes.
Tupac's star lives at 6212 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, joining stars for Missy Elliot, Nipsey Hussle, DJ Khaled, and more. Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Ana Martinez shared a statement with LA Times about the star. "Tupac Shakur was a rapper, actor, activist, poet, and revolutionary," Martinez stated. She continued, explaining, "This iconic artist has continued to be part of the zeitgeist for decades after his passing and will continue to be an important cultural figure for many years to come. Surely, as one of L.A.'s own, Tupac's star will be added to the list of most visited stars."

Tupac's Hollywood Star
Recently, various artists have taken to social media to share their thoughts on Tupac just now receiving his Hollywood star. "It took them 25 years + to give Tupac a star on Hollywood Blvd?" YG asked last week, "Y'all got him f****ed all the way up." Boosie Badazz also chimed in, writing, "Tupac ain't ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME?" He also said, "WTF THE DISRESPECT," adding, "Don't worry he saying F**K YALL from the Grave."
Last week, Tupac's biological father, Billy Garland, opened up about his feelings on Hughes' recent Dear Mama docuseries. "We did an interview for about two hours," he revealed. He also went on to say, "After I saw the interview in the documentary, I was slightly disappointed, let's just say that. I didn't like it. It was more about something else, than about 2Pac, if you know what I'm saying. If I knew it was about Dear Mama, I might've still did it, but I probably wouldn't have. Not for nothing."
