Singer Jhene Aiko recently debuted images from a editorial recreating some of Tupac’s legendary looks in honor of his birthday. In an interview with MTV the singer explains her love for Tupac and why she chose to honor the talented soul with a tribute spread.
“I feel like I have to give his legacy some type of present. It started off, one time I did a video shoot where they spread his ashes. And it was a coincidence that I was there that day, we were all like, “Wait a minute, this is Tupac’s birthday and we’re here on the same beach.” So after that, it’s been several years since then and every year I want to do something. I wrote a letter one year, I put it on my tumblr. It’s a special day because to me he was such a special person, so this year it was just an idea that me and my team had and I’m passionate about Tupac so it was something and I was like, “Yeah.” It was just random, it just happened on the spot; it was a really good idea for his birthday.”
