In memory of the 17th anniversary of Tupac Shakur’s tragic death, XXL is issuing a special collector’s issue commemorating the fallen icon’s life and music this month. XXL’s The Best Of 2Pac will feature 114 pages jam-packed with some of XXL’s best Tupac stories, interviews and features that have been in the magazine since its beginnings in 1997, a year after Tupac's tragic death.

The premium special collector’s issue includes interviews with the people that knew ’Pac the best including his mother, other family, friends, collaborators and his estranged father. The mag also has up-to-date album, book and movie discographies plus a definitive timeline of everything that has happened related to the late great Tupac since his death. And 62 rappers reflect on why ’Pac was so important to hip-hop.

XXL’s special collector’s issue, The Best Of 2Pac, hits newsstands on September 24.
