Estate of Tupac Files Suit

Tupac1

Tupac’s mother and co-administrator of his estate, Afeni Shakur, has reportedly filed a $1.1 million lawsuit against Entertainment One (E1), claiming the company breached a contract to pay royalties for the 2007 project, Beginnings: The Lost Tapes.

Reports say E1 purchased the rights to Tupac’s music from Death Row Records in July of this year. 

Tupac’s estate will also seek ownership of master recordings for all of his unreleased music.
