Tupac Shakur will be posthumously honored with a street name in Oakland, CA.
Reports say that MacArthur Boulevard between Grand Avenue and Van Buren will be changed to “Tupac Shakur Way.” The decision to change the street’s name to honor Shakur will be on the consent agenda which means that the vote will happen without discussion.
Councilmember Carroll Fife said in a statement about the honor, “Tupac Shakur’s legacy will continue through his contributions in art and social outreach, through his family and fans, touching countless lives of children and elders over the years while alive and after his death, taken too young by gun violence.”
Tupac’s career started in Oakland when he was with Digital Underground, and it was also the place where he created 2Pacalyse while residing in the Bay Area.
