Remembering Tupac Shakur on the 17th Anniversary of his death [Video]

Remembering my beloved Tupac Amaru Shakur on the anniversary of his death. 


17 years ago, I was a freshman at Troy High School in Michigan getting ready to go on the Himalaya ride at the school carnival, when the man with the mic announced that my favorite artist had died in Las Vegas.

Tupac was shot 7 days earlier after leaving a fight at the MGM Grand Hotel. He was pronounced dead at 4:03pm PST.


On the anniversary of his death we pay tribute to my favorite recording artist ever inside the Jazzy Drive At 5 mixshow with DJ Heat

Since his death there has been many Tupac wanna-be rappers who never quite had the impact that he has.

On the 10th anniversary of his death, I met up with his step brother Mopreme Shakur (Via Matulu Shakur) to hear his thought on this trend.


A few years ago, I journeyed to Georgia to visit the to the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for The Arts and talked with some of his cousins that run it in his memory.

This life size statue of Pac rests at the head of a cross-shaped pool at the Tupac Amaru Shakur foundation, Stone Mountain Georgia. Of course, I was first in line to check out the center whose mission is to provide an environment that encourages freedom of expression, serves as a resource for families, and empowers via education.

Since its inception TASF has offered performing arts camps, essay competitions, youth book clubs, visual arts workshops, community development projects, and scholarships to students pursuing undergraduate degrees.


The peace garden serves as a mediation walk space.

Rest In Peace Baby,

Love your Gemini Sister Jazzy T #2PacForever
