Iconic rapper and actor Tupac Shakur was honored with a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, almost 30 years after his passing, reports People.

At the ceremony on Wednesday, June 7, 2023 in Los Angeles, radio host Kurt "Big Boy" Alexander, who emceed the event, and Tupac's sister Sekyiwa "Set" Shakur, who’s also the president of the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation, were in attendance. Pac's sister was filled with emotion as she spoke about her brother being honored in front of his enduring fans and friends.

“As the proud sister of Tupac Amaru Shakur, the daughter of Mutulu and Afeni Shakur, it fills my heart with honor to stand here today representing the Shakur family,” said Tupac's sister. “Tupac knew deep down that he was always meant for something great; and as his little sister, I had the privilege to watch that greatness unfold.”

“From the first time he stepped foot on the stage of the Apollo Theater at 13 years old, before anyone recognized his name, he knew he had the dream to have a star here on the Walk of Fame,” she continued.

Tupac's sister also shared that a star on the Walk of Fame would have meant the world to her brother.

“Today, we’re not just honoring a star on the ground,” Sekyiwa said. “But we’re honoring the work and the passion that he has put into making his dreams come true. His heavenly star will shine a little brighter today.”

“Once again, he has made us all extremely proud. We love you, Tupac,” she said to a roaring round of applause and cheers.

Allen Hughes, who directed Dear Mama, a documentary series about Tupac and his mom Afeni Shakur, spoke about the long-lasting impact of Tupac’s revolutionary influence.

“Tupac Amaru Shakur has become a global symbol of rebellion, a symbol as visible and important as Malcolm X and Che Guevara. And an inspiration for activists today," said Hughes. "Indeed, the entire world feels Tupac’s message."

Considered one of the greatest rappers, Shakur sold more than 75 million records worldwide with several multi-platinum LPs, including Me Against the World, All Eyez On Me, The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory, and several others.
