Afeni Shakur Set To Release 2Pac’s Entire Discography
The legacy of 2Pac remains intact thanks to the tireless mission of his beloved mother Afeni and the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation, and seventeen years following his untimely death, Afeni has pledged to eventually have every and any song of her son’s catalogue dispensed, whether completed or not (though likely those of the latter will be somewhat concluded) for his loyal fanbase.
The ambitious goal will be guided by the Jampol Artist Management and Tom Whalley, the label executive whom first to signed Shakur to a record deal in the early ’90s. JAM specializes in handling with memorabilia and products of late music greats and their roster includes the estates of Otis Redding, Michael Jackson, and Peter Tosh, so the complex works of Makaveli is in good hands. While seven albums have been released posthumously with collaborations of hip-hop’s current superstars, Pac had revealed in prior interviewd to having tons of songs on the cutting floor or shelved for the time being. According to Afeni, his music has a definite bright future, which she shared in an exciting statement:
“I believe it it our responsibility to make sure that Tupac’s entire body of work is made available for his fans. My son left many incomplete pieces and even more unfinished ideas. Using the blueprints he gave us, I am committed to fulfilling his duty”
