"Today marks the 15th anniversary of Tupac Amura Shakur‘s death from his fatal injuries he suffered after being shot multiple times on Sept. 7, in Las Vegas. After attending a Mike Tyson-Bruce Seldon boxing match at the MGM Grand, the late rapper was a passenger in a car driven by Death Row Records CEO Marion “Suge” Knight when another car pulled alongside it and a gunman fired 14 bullets into their vehicle. Tupac was hit four times — twice in the chest, once in the arm, and once in the thigh. Knight was grazed by bullets but was otherwise didn’t sustained any life-threatening injuries.The fallen rapper was only 25 years old when he passed away at UMC’s Trauma Center surrounded by his family, including his mother, Afeni Shakur. In a strange twist, Tupac’s presumed killer, Orlando Anderson, a member of the Los Angeles-based Crips street gang, was murdered in May 1998. Both homicides remain unsolved. Fifteen years after Tupac’s untimely death, we celebrate the music of hip-hop’s most polarizing figure and the legacy that he left behind that is still immeasurable in popular culture."
