Tupac's Sister Pays Emotional Tribute at His Hollywood Walk of Fame Ceremony

Delivering a speech on behalf of her late rapper brother's family at the posthumous induction, Sekyiwa Shakur says, 'he was always meant for something great.'

AceShowbiz - Tupac Shakur's younger sister could not help but be emotional at his posthumous Hollywood Walk of Fame induction. On Wednesday, June 7, the late rap icon was honored with a star on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles and Sekyiwa Shakur delivered a speech on behalf of his family.

Holding back her tears at the induction ceremony, Sekyiwa told those present, "It fills my heart with honor to stand here today representing the Shakur family." She went on to share, "Tupac knew deep down that he was always meant for something great."

The 47-year-old continued, "And as his little sister, I had the privilege to watch that greatness unfold. From the first time he stepped foot on the stage of the Apollo Theater at 13 years old, before anyone recognized his name, he knew he had the dream to have a star here on the Walk of Fame."

"And now we gather here today to unveil Tupac's star - not only a tribute to his contribution in the music industry but also it speaks volumes to the lasting impact he's had on this world," the president-slash-CEO of Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation proudly reminded.

"Today we're not just honoring a star on the ground, but we're honoring the work and the passion that he's put into making his dreams come true. His heavenly star will shine a little brighter today. Once again, he has made us all extremely proud," Sekyiwa said in conclusion. "We love you Tupac."

Tupac was given the honor nearly twenty seven years after he passed away from drive-by shooting when he was just 25 years old. His star was the 2,758th handed out by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. It is located near Amoeba Music at 6212 Hollywood Boulevard.

The "California Love" rapper's induction ceremony was also attended by many notable people, including YG, Mike Epps and Naughty By Nature's lead rapper Treach. Radio host Big Boy, in the meantime, served as the MC for the special event.

In the wake of Tupac's induction, fans flooded social media to share their thoughts. One complained in the comments section of Hollywood Walk of Fame's official Instagram post, "This is sooo long overdue I am glad but am upset on the inside cause this was supposed to happen when the g was alive."

Another shared similar sentiment by asking, "But sorry why this late?? Pac had break this record for long. love u pac." Others, on the other hand, simply rejoiced with such comments that read, "All eyes on you Pac! Congrats. May your energies keep you in the highest of Heavens. Well Deserved," and, "YES!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS TO THE GOAT!! TUPAC AMARU SHAKUR!! It was a Beautiful day 2DAY. #2PACDAY."
