As Billboard reports, Afeni Shakur, Tupac’s mother and head of the rapper’s estate, has announced that she’s working with Jampol Artists Management to handle her son’s posthumous affairs.
In a statement she said, “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.”
The label executive who first signed Tupac, Tom Whalley, will also be working on the project with Jampol Artists Management, which will now be in charge of licensing as it relates to Tupac’s music, name, and likeness. The company also oversees the estates of other music legends such as The Doors, Janis Joplin and Otis Redding.
According to Afeni Shakur, this decision is an attempt to “find innovative ways to keep [Tupac’s] music, his message, and his legacy alive.”
