Tupac Shakur, whose star will be the 2,758th on the Walk of Fame, was born in New York and had a major influence on hip-hop, especially the West Coast rap scene.

Sekyiwa “Set” Shakur, Tupac’s sister, will represent the rapper during the official ceremony.

The host of the ceremony will be radio host Big Boy, and guests will be director Allen Hughes and writer Jamal Joseph.

Shakur, whose stage name was 2Pac, released his debut album in 1991 and achieved chart success with hits such as California Love, All Eyez on Me, Changes and I Ain’t Mad at Cha.

He died on September 13, 1996 at the age of 25 after being shot four times in Las Vegas, so the star will arrive a few months before the 27th anniversary of his death.

He would have turned 52 on June 16.
