:: The Ultimate Tupac Fan ::
In the run-up to Tupac Day we held a massive competition to find the UK's biggest Pac fan.

After successfully beating 1000s of other entrants by passing our online quiz and a series of elimination rounds on Semtex's show, you voted Simon from Birmingham as Tupac's Ultimate Fan.

Simon's once in a lifetime prize was a trip to LA to meet the people who were in Pac's life and record a show about the legendary rapper.

Listen to Simon's show
