American hip-hop artist Tupac Shakur, known by 2Pac on stage, would have celebrated his forty-first birthday today had he not been gunned down on a Las Vegas street fifteen years ago.
His birthday is remembered today, June 16, with a celebration in the San Francisco Bay Area, where Tupac once lived in a low-income housing project dubbed "The Jungle" with his mother, former Black Panther Afeni Shakur. As a teenager, Tupac and his mother moved there, to Marin City, in 1988 when he was 17. It's where Shakur formed the rap group Strictly Dope.
But Shakur first became noticed in Oakland's Digital Underground as a performer on the group's Nothing But Trouble soundtrack in 1991. On his birthday, the group is commemorating Tupac in a live show dedicated to the late rapper.
