In commemoration of the 19th death anniversary of legendary rapper Tupac, his estate released a contest asking fans for artwork remembering his life. The twenty best pieces were then published on the late rapper's social media accounts.

Most of the artists who got their work published were from the United States, but contributions also came from Australia and England. The various pieces all took a unique approach to their tributes. Most images were colorful and had a celebratory tone, while others were black and white with a more somber feel. All of the pieces incorporate the specific artist's style when recreating their Tupac portrait. Some opted for more realistic depictions of the musician, while others chose more artistic and graphic illustrations.

The outpouring of contributions to the contest only solidifies the important role Tupac played in many people's lives.
