Late music icon 2Pac‘s legacy is living on at Temple University. The fallen hip-hop mogul now has some of his most prized assets featured at the Philadelphia college’s campus.
According to reports, various items including a bullet-dented golden medallion from his near-fatal 1994 shooting are going to be showcased.
The rapper’s items will be on display at the school’s main campus at the Charles L. Blockson Afro-American Collection. The collection consists of roughly 500,000 items detailing “the global black experience.” “For a hip-hop head, this is truly a dream come true,” said Aaron Smith, a professor of Africology and African American Studies who teaches a Shakur-focused class at Temple. About a dozen items that belonged to Shakur were donated to the collection by Runnemede, New Jersey-based Goldin Auctions. (USA Today)
Last week, boxing icon Mike Tyson shared a rare pic of himself alongside Pac.
A few weeks ago, Pac’s former Death Row Records boss Suge Knight‘s son suggested he might still be alive.

Last month, reports emerged about Pac possibly faking his 1996 death and moving overseas.
And now Michael Nice has prompted more talk of a conspiracy by claiming Tupac is alive and living in Cuba. The British conspiracy theorist claims he was part of a security team that helped the rapper escape Las Vegas and smuggled him to the Caribbean. He now believes he is still hiding on the island.
