Jhene Aiko Pays Homage on Tupac’s Birthday With Photo Recreations


Whatever controversy you may or may not believe surrounding his life and death, Tupac Shakur’s impact is everlasting. When he died on September 13, 1996, Tupac left behind a legacy that transcends generations, influencing the likes of Kendrick Lamar and countless others to pick up the pieces. On what would have been his 44th birthday, Jhene Aiko and photographer Danny Williams revealed three tribute photos paying homage to iconic Tupac images, including his classic “All Eyez On Me” cover and David Lachappelle’s “Becoming Clean” photoshoot. In an interview with MTV on the photos, Jhene expresses that in order to recreate the photos she had to “channel her inner ‘Pac ,” emulating his confidence and swagger that drew people to him and his work. Hit the jump to peep the photos and catch a Jhene doing her rendition of ‘Pac’s classic, “Keep Ya Head Up.”
