Were he alive today, Tupac Shakur would be celebrating his 44th birthday.

Despite his untimely death, his music changed the rap landscape forever, and he lives on through the artists he's inspired, his hologram's performances, and a few crafty Pinterest- and Tumblr-users' unmatched creativity. Here are some fun art projects and cool pieces of fan art to celebrate the life and work of one of hip-hop's most influential homies. RIP, Pac:

This print has a major Kehinde Wiley feel, which is refreshing. More hip hop artists on floral backgrounds, please.

This cake is giving major side eye 👀, but the homage is nice (and that chocolate looks good, ngl).

As a prerequisite to making these cupcakes, you must have expertise in sculpting and making little rounded facial features. Additionally, you must master the art of making Tupac look like Biggie with a mustache.
