In 1991, Tupac started his career with Oakland-based group Digital Underground. The Mayor of Oakland paid homage to Tupac and his contributions to the city.

“Although Tupac was born in Harlem, New York City, in 1971, later lived in Baltimore, Maryland, and in Marin City, California, he cherished his time in Oakland as his home, stating that he got his ‘Game’ from Oakland. Tupac once said: ‘…I give all my love to Oakland, if I’ma claim somewhere I’ma claim Oakland.’”
