On September 13, 1996, Tupac Shakur tragically passed away after being shot in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. At around 4:03 p.m., Tupac was declared dead after his body started hemorrhaging blood and doctors were unable to stop the internal bleeding. His mother, Afeni, ordered the doctors to stop after blood loss became too severe and ‘Pac was soon declared dead after living seven days in a medically-induced coma. The official cause of death was noted after an autopsy as respiratory failure and cardiopulmonary arrest in connection with multiple gunshot wounds. After the autopsy, Tupac’s body was cremated the very next day.

During his brief life, Tupac was arguably the most revered and celebrated rapper to ever do it. In a career that stretched from his days as a background dancer for the Oakland-based hip-hop collective, Digital Underground, to acting in films and his celebrated run at Death Row Records, Tupac Shakur’s life and music touched the lives of millions of fans across the planet.

Due to having one of the most extensive and exhaustive catalogs of music, Tupac has sold over 75 million records worldwide making him one of the most commercially successful musicians of all-time. His discography features some of hip-hop’s most enduring records including “California Love, “I Get Around,” “Hail Mary,” “Dear Mama” and countless others.

Rest In Peace, Tupac Shakur.
