May 22, 2023 | By Kali Girl

On Tuesday, the Oakland City Council’s unanimous vote honors Tupac Shakur, renaming a stretch of MacArthur Boulevard in his memory, reports KTVU. The area between Grand and Van Buren Avenues will now be called Tupac Shakur Way, with commemorative plaques set to be installed.

In 2016, Oakland proclaimed June 16 as Tupac Shakur Day. In addition to Tupac, Oakland also renamed a street for the rapper Too $hort and another for Huey P Newton a co-founder of the Black Panther Party.

Congratulations to the Shakur family.
