JheneJhene Aiko paid homage to late rapper Tupac by recreating some of his most classic photos on what would’ve been his 44th birthday!

The 27-year-old music star released the photos exclusively to MTV News and was photographed by Danny Williams.

MTV writes:

One of the photos captures the feel of the rapper’s diamond-selling 1996 classic All Eyez on Me, by recreating the LP’s album cover; while another pays homage to the photo used to cover his posthumous Greatest Hits collection. The third photo, finds Aiko laying in a bathtub, covered in gold, saluting David Lachapelle’s “Becoming Clean” photo shoot, which took place right after ’Pac was released from jail in 1995.
