Tupac Shakur’s Mother Promises More Music on the Way

February 18, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

The mother of Tupac Shakur says that more of the late rapper’s music is on the way. Afeni Shakur, the head of Tupac’s estate and the founder of the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation, has announced that his estate will be handled by Jampol Artist Management.

Afeni said in the press release, “I believe it is 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 this duty.”

Shakur’s former label associate Tom Whalley, who first signed him, will work with Jampol on future projects. Jampol will oversee the licensing, apparel and other ventures for Shakur’s name, likeness, music and films in all media worldwide.

Jampol said in the statement, “It’s our responsibility — and our privilege — to ensure that new generations of fans experience the power of Tupac’s music, his ideas and his storytelling.”
