Tupac Shakur (June 16, 1971 - Sept. 13, 1996): The rapper known as 2Pac died six days after being wounded in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. He was 25. Though no arrests have been made in the years since his death, it is thought to have been linked to an East Coast-West Coast beef between 2Pac and rival rapper Notorious B.I.G., who was also killed in a shooting six months later.
