Kendrick Lamar pens open heartfelt letter to Tupac

Kendrick Lamar has written a very heartfelt letter to the late Tupac revealing what he felt the moment he first saw Tupac on the 19th anniversary of his death.

Read the letter below:

“I was 8 yrs old when I first saw you. I couldn’t describe how I felt at that moment. So many emotions. Full of excitement. Full of joy and eagerness. 20 yrs later I understand exactly what that feeling was. INSPIRED. The people that you touched on that small intersection changed lives forever. I told myself I wanted to be a voice for man one day. Whoever knew I was speaking out loud for u to listen.

Thank you, K.L.”
