Happy Birthday, Tupac!

Rap legend Tupac Shakur would have turned 39 today. We remember him through his music.


Rap legend Tupac Shakur would have turned 39 years old today. How befitting that the man who would help shape hip-hop music and culture was born during black music month. Fourteen years ago Tupac Shakur was assassinated (yeah, Chris Rock, we said it and we mean it). We're still going through changes over it. Check out Pac's Top 10 hits and some honorable mentions according to the BVX. Did your favorite make the list? Let us know what you think. Happy birthday to one of the greatest and most influential rappers of our time! RIP.
