With just a few days to music’s biggest night, Grammy week has officially started. On Monday (Feb. 2), The Grammy Museum unveiled its “All Eyez on Me: The Writings of Tupac Shakur” exhibit, and by the looks of it, an all-star packed guest list was in attendance.
Chuck D, YG, Paul Rodriguez, E.D.I Mean, Money B, Ray Luv and John Singleton moderated a panel that discussed the legacy of Tupac and his widespread influence. Tupac’s mother Afeni Shakur was also in attendance for the opening, as well other members of the iconic rapper’s family.
