Today marks the 19 anniversary of the death of one of the greatest icons of world Hip-hop, Tupac Shakur.

A hip-hop legend, with explicit and controversial lyrics, Tupac Shakur was embroiled in a feud between East Coast and West Coast rappers.

Born in New York City in 1971, Shakur has sold more than 75 million albums worldwide, making him one of the best-selling music artists in the world.

Most of Tupac's songs are about growing up amid violence and hardship in ghettos, racism, other social problems and conflicts with other rappers during the East Coast-West Coast hip hop rivalry.

Shakur was shot and killed in Las Vegas, Nevada, in 1996.
