Tupac’s 15th Annual Vigil

On Sept. 13, it will have been 15 years since the world lost hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur. The mark he left on the music industry is undeniable, and his murder at the intersection of Flamingo Road and Koval Lane inadvertently turned Las Vegas into one of hip-hop’s historical landmarks. Every year since his death, his fans have descended upon Las Vegas to honor Shakur at the scene of the crime. (This year, the vigil begins at 7 p.m. on the southwest corner of the intersection.)

“People come and go throughout the day, but the core fans stay and exchange stories and sing songs,” says loyal attendee DJ September 7th, who recently released the remix mixtape 2Pac—Eternal Legend in honor of the fallen rapper. “It’s very respectful and full of positive vibes.”
