Blessings! Chance the Rapper took to Twitter on Tuesday, Oct. 31, to share a photo of himself and longtime love Kirsten Corley dressed up as Tupac Shakur and Jada Pinkett Smith for Halloween. Chance and Kirsten recreated a photo of the late hip-hop legend and his pal Jada from back in the day, and it is so spot-on. Check it out in the video below!
Chance, 24, has never been shy about his love for Tupac, whose life was tragically cut short at the age of 25 when he was shot multiple times in Las Vegas on Sept. 7, 1996. The Chicago native reminisced on Tupac’s legacy at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, which took place just days before the 20th anniversary of the iconic MC’s death. “I see him as a great man and an outspoken man and a truth teller,” Chance told Billboard at the time.
Of course, the “No Problem” hitmaker isn’t the only member of the hip-hop community who has been influenced by Tupac. Several other rappers shared their love for the legendary musician at the 2016 VMAs, including Jidenna — who, like Tupac was, is politically outspoken in his lyrics.

"Tupac Shakur was not afraid to say what he wanted to say," he said of ‘Pac. "I do think that we have artists in our generation like Kanye West. They don't wear a mask like most of us on this carpet, including myself. I'm still learning as a rookie, how to be as honest and passionate as Tupac Shakur.”
