On September 7, 1996, in Las Vegas, hip hop superstar Tupac Shakur was shot four times while sitting in the passenger seat of a car idling at a stoplight. Shakur died six days later at a local hospital. Shakur’s death was devastating to his family, friends and millions of fans. It also further inflamed tensions between rival record companies on the West and East coasts, as well as between the street gangs associated with them. In conjunction with the 25th anniversary of the tragedy, a panel discussion at The Mob Museum explored the events leading to Shakur’s death, the police investigations that followed, and Shakur’s cultural legacy. Panelists were rap music legend Chuck D, Tupac music collaborator E.D.I. Mean and retired Los Angeles homicide detective Frederick Reynolds. The discussion was moderated by journalist and film producer Stephanie Frederic.
