Afeni Shakur, the mother of the late and great Tupac Shakur, wants the world to hear all the music her son recorded, and she is determined to get it all out.
“I believe it is our responsibility to make sure that Tupac’s entire body of work is made available for his fans,” Shakur said in a statement reported in Billboard. “My son left many incomplete pieces and even more unfinished ideas. Using the blueprints he gave us, I am committed to fulfilling this duty.”
Tupac’s estate is now managed by Jampol Artist Management. Afeni Shakur has been named the head of the estate. Since he was gunned down in 1996, Tupac’s music has slowly been leaked and released to the mainstream. Three of the last seven albums released since his death reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200, and all have cracked the Top 10. Tupac’s last album, “Pac’s Life,” was released in 2006 and peaked at No. 9 on U.S. charts.
