In Oakland, California, a section of MacArthur Boulevard between Grand Avenue and Van Buren will be renamed “Tupac Shakur Way.”

Tupac would join Peter Van Kleef, Huey P. Newton, Dorothy King, and Too Short as prominent personalities to be honored with city streets.

Tupac’s roots in Oakland are linked to the beginning of his career with Digital Underground. Tupac also made his 2Pacalypse Now album while residing in the Bay Area.

The Oaklandside reports that the “Dear Mama” rapper’s street will be on the consent agenda, which means it will be voted on without debate.

“Tupac Shakur’s legacy will continue through his contributions in art and social outreach, through his family and fans, touching countless lives of children and elders over the years while alive and after his death, taken too young by gun violence,” Councilmember Carroll Fife said.
