Outlawz Affiliate Seeks To Have Tupac Shakur Added To Hollywood Walk of Fame

In an effort to

keep Tupac’s worldwide legacy alive, Tupac’s protégé, Muszamil,

is spearheading a petition to get the Hip-Hop legend a star on the prestigious

Hollywood Walk of Fame.The

on-line petition, which currently has close to 6,500 signatures, will be presented

to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, as well as Johnny Grant, head of the Hollywood

Walk of Fame selection committee.As

part of the criteria to get a star, nominees must have accumulated a body of achievement

over a period of some longevity with at least some measurable contribution to

the community. Applicants

are also required to pay a $15,000 nomination fee. Out of roughly 200 nominees

a year, about 20 to 30 celebrities receive a Walk of Fame star.There

are several categories for receiving stars including a posthumous category, motion

pictures, television, recording (as in music), live theater and radio.Muszamil

is currently touring the country to support his campaign to get Tupac a Walk of

Fame star, as well as, the release of his second album, Makaveli Presents…Muszamil

– Reparations is Due, which arrives in stores Sept. 19.Muszamil

became an affiliate of Tupac’s Outlawz, shortly after his brother Mutah began

recording with the rap group under the alias “Napoleon” in 1995.Muszamil

eventually became the first to sign with Outlaw Recordz. Despite Tupac Shakur’s

tragic and untimely death ten years ago, the legacy of the late rapper Tupac Shakur

continues to live on through his inspirational music, spoken word projects and

movies.The

cultural icon is the best-selling rap artist in history and has had his poems,

and musical work studied in various schools and colleges.For
