Tupac Shakur Street Unveiled in Oakland to Honor Late Rap Icon

The G.O.A.T (Greatest Of All Time)

A stretch of street in Oakland, California, was renamed Friday (Nov. 3) for Tupac Shakur, 27 years after the killing of the hip-hop luminary.

A section of MacArthur Boulevard near where he lived in the 1990s became Tupac Shakur Way, following a ceremony that included his family members and Oakland native MC Hammer.

“Let his spirit live on the rest of these years in these streets and in your hearts,” Shakur’s sister Sekyiwa “Set” Shakur told the crowd, wiping away tears at the end of a nearly two-hour ceremony. The sign for Tupac Shakur Way was unveiled moments later.

MC Hammer the “U Can’t Touch This” rapper who spent many of Shakur’s final months with him before his 1996 shooting death at age 25, said in his remarks that Shakur was, “hands down, the greatest rapper ever, there’s not even a question of that.”

It’s Leo Season: Leo ♌-Royalty Of The Zodiac, King and Queen 👑 Of The Jungle

The Roar of the Lion is purrrfect…

Leos have a leadership role as they are known to be the kings and queens of the jungle. They have not just haphazardly been given this title, no, Leos have earned it. No animal in the animal kingdom has more heart than a lion. When it’s time to feed their young, they have been known to tackle some of the largest animals on land such as hippopotami, giraffes even elephants.

Leos are ruled by the powerful sun which there would be no life on earth without the warm, life-giving rays of the sun. Leos have inherited the vital force of the sun and all its qualities. When a Leo enters a room, you can feel the energy shift. It’s as though a ray of sunshine has just peeked out from behind the clouds filling the space with a soothing warmth.

And yes, Leos can turn that purr into a roar when they are betrayed or their love is taken advantage of. It’s best to stay on the good side of a Leo. Not because you are afraid of the roar of their anger but it’s best to stay on the good side of Leo in order to feel the warmth of their great, heartfelt love.

Watch: Teyana Taylor Head to the Desert With Diddy for Sci-Fi Inspired ‘Closer to God’ Video

Diddy and Teyana Sizzle in the Desert!

The track hails from Diddy’s The Love Album: Off the Grid.

Diddy and Teyana Taylor play a pair of lovers separated by the vast expanse of a desert in their video for “Closer to God,” release.

The video, directed by Taylor, kicks off with a shot of several islands floating in the sky, draped with chrome elements. The scene then cuts to a dry desert with Diddy walking around to see where he can find Taylor, but the two struggle to meet.

“I’ll be ya future baby mama, teacher, lover, friend/ While I’m all of the above, you know I can’t pretend/ I’ll be your lioness, I’ll post up in your den/ I, sing it, bae/ Oh-oh, oh, I/ I get closer to God when I’m with you,” Taylor passionately sings.

She wears an array of ornate and sculptural outfits in shades of gold, copper and vibrant red as she passionately sings atop a horse — the sole thing that keeps them tied together, as Diddy is seen riding the same horse throughout the desert. The pair ultimately reconnects by the end of the video.

In a press release for the video, Diddy praised Taylor’s artistry and work ethic. “Teyana is not just an incredible artist, she’s my sister,” he said. “She has this undeniable force and raw emotion she brings to every project. When we began conceptualizing ‘Closer to God,’ her name was at the forefront of my mind. I had to convince her to come out of retirement, but I knew she would perfectly capture the spiritual essence and depth of the song. Collaborating with her on both the song and its visual was like harmonizing with a kindred spirit. Together, we’ve created something truly special.”

Of hopping on the project, Taylor said, “Working on ‘Closer to God’ was a spiritual journey in itself … The song’s message of love and divine connection resonated deeply with me, and visually representing that was a beautiful challenge. I believe we’ve created something that will touch people’s souls.”

“Closer to God” hails from Diddy’s The Love Album: Off the Grid. The set has so far reached No. 19 on the all-genre Billboard 200, and No. 5 on Top R&B and Hi0-Hop Albums.

It’s Fiery🔥 Aries ♈ Season: Watch 👁 the Video and Feel The Fired-Up Energy!

Have You Been Procrastinating…Now Is The Time To Make It Happen!

Hello, it’s Aries Season ! Today the sun🌞moves into fiery Aries. This is the astrological New Year and time for fresh starts! Tomorrow we have a new moon 🌚 also in Aries. Wow, If you ever wanted to change the direction of your life, this is it…set your intentions!

Aries is the beginning of Spring when the flowers and trees are blooming, the grass is green, the days are getting longer and we hear the sweet sounds of birds chirping. We are hopeful as we say bye to the cold, bitterness of winter and venture out of hibernation into the warmth of sunshine. We may still experience some gentle spring showers but that’s okay because we know the golden sun is taking its rightful throne.

We can look forward to summer vacations, outdoor sports, barbecues, hanging out at the pool, cold lemonade and frolicking on the beach in skimpy swimwear not to mention those sumptuous, summer romances.

At this time we feel energized. This particular spring is even more energizing as on March 2oth, spring begins and on March 21st, we have a new moon in Aries! And when you throw in the fact that six celestial bodies: Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn and Pluto all leave one zodiac sign this month of March to ingress into a different zodiac sign, it seems as though we are enveloped in the universal ether of transition if not transformation.

Now is the time. As we leave behind the stagnation of winter to revel in the bursting colors of spring, there is hope that we too can mimic the magnificence of spring and bring  forth its promise into our earthly being.

Let’s Go!
