YG took to social media to share his opinion on Tupac receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame just recently. He thinks it's messed up that the iconic rapper hadn't been honored at the landmark up until now, and he's not the only one. Several other social media users flocked to the comments section to agree with him. "It took them 25 years + to give Tupac a star on Hollywood Blvd?" YG asked. He then claimed, "Y’all got him f****ed all the way up.” "I completely agree!" one user wrote, adding, "Should have given him one a long time ago." Another agrees, "mf the biggest star to come outta rap other than snoop, jay, & em from that era."

Another artist, Boosie Badazz, also shared his thoughts about the star on Twitter. "Tupac ain’t ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME?" he wrote, "WTF THE DISRESPECT." He also said, in typical Boosie fashion, "Don’t worry he saying F**K YALL from the Grave."

Tupac's Hollywood Star

It was recently announced that Tupac will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame sometime next week. Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame spoke to LA Times about the star. “Tupac Shakur was a rapper, actor, activist, poet, and revolutionary," Martinez stated. She also went on to explain, “This iconic artist has continued to be part of the zeitgeist for decades after his passing and will continue to be an important cultural figure for many years to come. Surely, as one of L.A.’s own, Tupac’s star will be added to the list of most visited stars.”

Tupac's star will be located at 6212 Hollywood Boulevard, alongside Big Boy, Missy Elliott, Cedric The Entertainer, Nipsey Hussle, DJ Khaled, Taraji P. Henson, Avril Lavigne, Jean Negulesco, and Jack Paar. The late rapper's sister, Sekyiwa “Set” Shakur, will officially accept the star. Big Boy is set to host the ceremony, and Tupac's godfather, Jamal Joseph, is also set to speak at the event.
