Oakland Votes to Rename Part of MacArthur Boulevard in Honor of Tupac Shakur

Tupac Shakur once said he gave all his love to Oakland, and on Tuesday, the city is giving back to him.

The city council voted to rename part of MacArthur Boulevard in honor of the hip hop legend — the section between Grand Avenue and Van Buren Avenue, near the Grand Lake Theater.

Tupac was raised in Marin City and Baltimore, but launched his music career in Oakland.

In 2016, city officials dedicated June 16 as Tupac Shakur Day in the city.

The resolution to rename the street in his honor, celebrates Tupac for his contributions to art and social outreach.
