Tupac Shakur received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, 26 years after the rapper’s death.

The hip-hop star will be honoured with a ceremony on the prestigious Los Angeles walkway on 7 June.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce confirmed the rapper would receive the posthumous honour to the LA Times.

Shakur, whose star will be the Walk of Fame’s 2,758th, was a New York-born rapper who heavily influenced hip-hop, particularly the West Coast rap scene.

Sekyiwa “Set” Shakur, Tupac’s sister, will accept the honour on his behalf during the formal opening ceremony.
