Amidst all the foolishness that ensued at the VMAs last night, we here at The Chick Fix almost forgot that yesterday, September 13, 2009  marked 13 years since the passing of rapper/actor Tupac Shakur (coincidentally, Shakur and Knight attended the 1996 VMAs just days before Shakur's death).

Shakur was just 25 years old when he was murdered while riding in a car with then CEO of Deathrow Records, Suge Knight. The two were leaving a Mike Tyson fight at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada when gunmen opened fired on Suge's BMV sedan.

Initially, Shakur was in critical condition when he arrived at the hospital on September 7, 2009, but his condition was said to have improved.

Unfortunately, Shakur succumbed to his injuries 6 days after the shooting on September, 13, 1996.

I think the rap game would be totally different if Tupac (the same goes for Biggie) was still alive. Rest in peace Pac.
