As many of us celebrate Fathers Day, Hip Hop fans across the globe are also paying tribute to the late great, Tupac Shakur. Today, June 16th, would have been the legendary rapper’s 48th birthday. The iconic Los Angeles icon (by way of East Harlem & Baltimore) continues to be remembered for his contributions to Hip Hop.
From penning some of Hip Hop’s most iconic songs such as “Brenda’s Got A Baby,” to his breakout role alongside Janet Jackson in “Poetic Justice,” to his role on one of Hip Hop’s infamous labels, Deathrow Records, Tupac is legend. Simply put.
Not just because we’re a Los Angeles based brand, but because we appreciate the culture we draw inspiration from - this one is for you, Pac.
The night of the Tyson/Seldon fight Tupac Shakur was wearing a large medallion that he had purchased containing $30,000 worth of diamonds which was 3 inches in diameter. The medallion itself isn't odd but the image on it is. The middle of it contained an emblem for "Euphanasia" the name of 2Pac's new company. It had a image of a muscular black angel of death on his knees with his head tilted down and on his back a huge pair of wings and a halo.
Euphansia was 2Pac's take on Euthanasia which means an easy and painless death or a way to end suffering. This was the last chain Tupac was seen wearing alive and it's been said, "the energy of Pac lives within those who wear the Euphanasia necklace."
