From back up dancer to lead actor to street gang organizer, there are very few Hip Hop artists that have been as influential to popular culture as Tupac Amaru Shakur. Even 23 years after his untimely death in Las Vegas following the now infamous Mike Tyson vs. Bruce Seldon fight at the MGM, ‘Pac’s musical and socio-political impact, especially during the era of Black Lives Matter, is felt more than ever.
On what would have been Tupac’s 49th birthday, The Source Magazine/The Northstar Group will be facilitating “Tupac Remembrance Day” on all of its platforms, including several IG Live conversations with the rap icon’s family members, friends and industry insiders who have their own personal stories about the immortal “Thug Life” general. His older brother Mopreme Shakur, his nephew Malik Shakur, West Coast legend Yo Yo, Steele of Boot Camp Clik’s Smif N Wessun, Bay Area favorite Mistah F.A.B. and legendary urban designer April Walker.
The conversations and interviews will be conducted throughout the day beginning at 12:30 PM EST, with topics including everything from personal stories, virtually unknown Tupac album collaborations and releases and his impact on both coasts as well as around the globe. Come join the conversation at @thesource on IG!
