Tupac Shakur posthumously receives star on Hollywood …
Long ago Tupac Shakur asked the question: "How Long Will They Mourn Me?"
Almost 30 years after that song was released, fans are still paying homage to the West Coast rapper's legacy. Hundreds lined up along Hollywood Boulevard to witness Shakur posthumously receive a star on the Walk of Fame.
"He was an outstanding individual when it came to communicating a message to those that needed to hear it and he was always all about change and to make that change," said fan Janel Alexander-O'Connor, who traveled to Tinsel Town to attend the ceremony.
Shakur was gunned down on Sept. 13, 1996, but his influence lives on in his music and message. His memory has been honored in murals across the U.S. and even across the globe in parts of Africa and beyond.
