Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema won the 202 Ballon d’Or award and on that night he stylishly paid tribute to his music idol Tupac Amaru Shakur.
It was the French striker that claimed the award following his immense display for Real Madrid last season Benzema put in the best numbers of his career, he was the top scorer in La Liga and the Champions League and scored a total of 44 goals last season.
He guided the Spanish club to the La Liga and Champions League, this season he has also won the European Super Cup and has helped Real Madrid to the top of the La Liga table following the 3-1 win against Barcelona at Santiago Bernabeu.
The former Lyon star wore an outfit almost identical to the one the rapper and actor, who was murdered in 1996, wore to one of the galas where he was presented with a music award.

The outfit has two special details: a kind of bow tie knotted around the neck and a pair of thin-rimmed glasses that stand out above all else. Otherwise, the outfit is simple: black blazer, white shirt and black trousers.
Benzema will start the defence of his Ballon d’Or when he laces his boot against Elche in their next clash in La Liga on Wednesday evening before they take on Sevilla on Saturday.
