Today marks 19 years since the untimely passing of one Tupac Amaru Shakur. And although his music has touched many, there is one person who does not let a day go by without letting the world know how appreciative he is of the life and legacy he left behind: Kendrick Lamar.
To show his eternal gratefulness and reverence, K Dot penned the following letter to Shakur, which was posted on 2Pac.com.
I was 8 yrs old when I first saw you. I couldn’t describe how I felt at that moment. So many emotions. Full of excitement. Full of joy and eagerness. 20 yrs later I understand exactly what that feeling was.
The people that you touched on that small intersection changed lives forever. I told myself I wanted to be a voice for man one day. Whoever knew I was speaking out loud for u to listen.
