Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur has made an announcement that her late son’s estate is under new management, and with the move, new music from the late emcee is on the way.
As reported by Billboard, Afeni Shakur revealed that the estate of her son Tupac is being moved to Jampol Artist Management (JAM), and she also noted that there is unheard music to be released.
Afeni Shakur explains the change in management, and plan to move forward with releasing new material:
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.
[We] will find innovative ways to continue to keep his music, his message, and his legacy alive.
Tom Whalley, who signed ‘Pac to his first label deal will be working with JAM on future 2pac music projects, and the management company will also “oversee licensing, apparel and other ventures in all media, worldwide, as it relates to Shakur’s music, film, name and likeness.”
JAM founder and president Jeffrey Jampol gave a statement on managing ‘Pac’s estate:
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
With the move, 2pac will be added to the JAM roster, which includes the Doors, Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, Peter Tosh and Henry Mancini.
