The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles is honoring the rap legend in a major way
It’s been a long time coming for something of this magnitude to happen for the West Coast legend Tupac Shakur and it’s finally coming to fruition. Opening up on Feb. 2 at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, the new exhibition dedicated to rapper Tupac Shakur will give fans an up close and personal view into the late great rapper’s life.
Titled “All Eyez on Me: The Writings of Tupac Shakur”, this exhibition will bring light to the incredible legacy that Tupac Shakur built. The exhibit will feature various handwritten notes, poems and lyrics written by Tupac along with performance footage and outfits he wore.
Afeni Shakur said these kind words to the LA Times regarding the Grammy Museum’s decision to dedicate a exhibit to her son:
“It means a lot to me that Bob Santelli and the Grammy Museum have chosen to honor my son with their upcoming exhibit of his works,” she said in the same statement. “Tupac’s writings are an honest reflection of his passions for, and about life. His timeless messages have instilled hope for those who have little, and for others, they serve as a catalyst for change. His words continue to motivate and inspire new generations.”
This exhibit is a great thing for Tupac fans, but more importantly, a large stepping stone for the culture of Hip Hop. Good to see the legacy of the late great Tupac Shakur is still living on.
