Expect to soon take in some never-heard-before Tupac tracks. That’s because the legendary lyricist’s Dear Mama is gearing up to release a collection of pieces which she says Pac left behind.
The plan has already been green-lighted by Afeni Shakur, who recently joined forces with Jampol Artist Management over the release. You may recall the label’s exec, Tom Whalley, is the man who first signed Tupac to a major.
Here’s what Afeni Shakur had to say to Billboard:
“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.”
Does Jampol Artist Management’s licensing roster include the Doors, Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, Peter Tosh, Henry Mancini – as well as consults for Michael Jackson’s estate? Of course. Don’t believe me.. Ask JAM founder and president, Jeffrey Jampol.
