It’s no surprise Durant is a huge fan of hip-hop. In the past, he’s spoken on his favorite rappers like Drake and the Notorious B.I.G. You can also see below Pac’s head with is a small portrait of the Wu-Tang Clan logo. Warriors columnist, Marcus Thompson tweeted out that Durant had always admired Tupac.
Durant is a huge Pac fan, I just learned. Biggie is his favorite but he is supremely impressed with Pac’s mind at such a young age

The internet had a big reaction to the super star’s latest ink.
Right now, in a quiet beachfront town in Cuba, Tupac is getting a huge Kevin Durant tattoo.

Durant will hope his new tattoo brings him luck. By joining an already stacked 73 win Warrior team, he will carry a huge target on his back going into the upcoming NBA season.
