26 Photos To Remember The Legendary Tupac Shakur On The Anniversary Of His Death

It has been 25 years since Tupac's death, but his legacy still lives on today.

Posted on September 13, 2021, at 1:16 p.m. ET

On Sept. 13, 1996, Tupac Shakur died after being wounded in a drive-by shooting six days earlier in Las Vegas. Though there have been numerous police investigations into the crime, no one has ever been charged. If he were alive today, the rap legend would be 50 years old.

Tupac was no stranger to the Billboard charts or the big screen; his hits include “California Love,” “Changes,” and “Hit 'Em Up.” Here are some photos that show off his indelible style.
