Tupac Shakur’s sister, Sekyiwa ‘Set’ Shakur got emotional during his posthumous Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony.

Before the rap legend got his star on June 7, his sister was given a recognition and resolution on behalf of the City of Los Angeles. Then she took the podium to give a moving speech where she talked about her how her brother always knew he was bound for greatness.

My brother is better’: The 47-year-old president-CEO of Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation was four years younger than the Harlem-born rap legend who died, age 25, in 1996 six days after being shot four times by an unknown assassin during a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas

Before anyone recognized his name, he knew he had a dream to have a star here on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” she said before tearing up as she talked about what it means for him to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Walk of Fame said Shakur was selected to receive a star in 2013, but the organization waited for his family and estate to select a date.

Shakur was given the 2,758th star on the Walk of Fame. His birthday is June 16.

While trying to hold back her tears, Set said: ‘It fills my heart with honor to stand here today representing the Shakur family. Tupac knew deep down that he was always meant for something great. And as his little sister, I had the privilege to watch that greatness unfold’

“Now we gather here today to unveil Tupac’s star not only paying tribute to his contributions to the music industry, but also speaks volumes to the lasting impact he’s had on this world,” she continued. “Today, we’re not just honoring a star in the ground. But we’re honoring the work and the passion that he’s put into making his dreams come true.”

His professional music career only lasted five years, but he sold more than 75 million records worldwide, including the diamond-certified album “All Eyez on Me,” which was packed with hits including “California Love (Remix)”, “I Ain’t Mad at Cha” and “How Do U Want It.” He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017.
