Street in Oakland, California to be renamed after Tupac Shakur

The late Tupac Shakur will have a stretch of street in Oakland, California renamed for him after a unanimous vote by the city council earlier this week.

Shakur was born in Harlem, New York and later lived in Baltimore, Maryland; and in Marin City, California, but credited Oakland as the location where he got his "game" and launched his career, according to legislation authorising the commemorative street renaming.

The City Council legislation says the renamed part of the street will remind people of Shakur's contributions to Oakland and celebrate art and culture as a catalyst for societal change.

No timeline was provided for the name change.
