It's been 26 years since 2pac died, but his legacy lives on.

2Pac, also known as Tupac Shakur, is one of the most influential hip hop artists of all time. His music was a powerful message that touched and moved many people around the world. He was a pioneer for the Black community and is remembered for his ability to captivate and inspire with beautiful lyricism. His music portrayed a violent and gritty gangster lifestyle but, more importantly, it showed that the struggle for justice was real.

Despite his success and popularity, Tupac's life was plagued with troubles and turmoil. He fought several times with his fellow rappers, including Notorious B.I.G, and was in the middle of a feud with Death Row Records' CEO Suge Knight. In addition, he was involved in two robberies and had run-ins with the police.

The controversies surrounding his life did not help his reputation either. This is largely due to his constant association with drugs and violence. In 1996, he was shot multiple times by a gunman in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. He was taken to hospital, but he died six days later.

His passing was devastating for his fans and left a huge hole in the entertainment industry. Since his death, other rappers have tried to imitate his style and his boldness. However, they have failed to replicate the magic that was 2Pac.
