While most 2Pac fans will be celebrating his birthday and legacy by hitting theaters to see Demetrius Shipp, Jr. portray 'Pac in All Eyez On Me, Fred Blankenship and Mark Arum linked up once again to pay homage by working numerous 2Pac lyrics into their daily news broadcast on WSB-TV in Atlanta. "Like the 285, I get around," Blankenship began, "'round and 'round, 'round we go every Friday." 

Arum compliments the broadcast with gems like, "All I need in this traffic life of sin is me and my girlfriend," as well as calling the reporter in the skies Mark McKay "untouchable like Elliot Ness." You have to give Linda Stouffer props, too, although I can't front: Is she maintaining that smiling face so she doesn't bust up laughing, or is she not in on the gag and just smiling through her confusion?

For those who know, this isn't the first time Blankenship and Arum have paid tribute to hip-hop legends in this manner. They paid tribute to The Notorious B.I.G. back on March 9, and Arum went in on the Tribe references in tribute to Phife Dawg in 2016. It feels like a hilarious sketch from Saturday Night Live, but the fact that it's real makes it mad sincere.
