It was nineteen years ago today that Tupac Shakur's life was taken too soon. The rap world would never be the same, and the community really felt the loss.

Dozens of rappers have recorded verses and entire songs to commemorate the fallen MC. You heard some of these tributes on the Rose That Grew from Concrete compilations, where different MCs took unused Tupac lyrics to create songs. You may have also heard cuts like Nas' "God Bless The Dead" where he tips his hat to both Pac and B.I.G.

To pay our respects to Tupac, we've decided to compile what we feel are the best tribute songs recorded for the infamous west coast MC. There will never be another like Tupac Shakur, may he rest in peace.
