Afeni Shakur Teams With Evergreen Copyrights to Market and Promote Tupac Material

tupac.jpgAfeni Shakur, mother of slain hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur, has inked a deal with Evergreen Copyrights to market and promote her son’s work on a global scale. Through the deal, Evergreen—an independent music publishing and marketing company—will seek out new opportunities for ‘Pac’s extensive catalog of recorded material. “I believe that after 10 years I have done as much as I can on my own to further the creative aspect of Tupac’s music,” says Afeni. “I’m looking forward to working with Evergreen’s publishing and creative marketing teams to reach a more global market and to expand the opportunities for my son’s music.” Some projects that are already in the works include a remix project for material from the All Eyez on Me and Makaveli LPs, a Tupac based Broadway play and a video game. Tupac Remembered, a book of interviews with political leaders, actors and rap artists about ‘Pac is also due out in 2008. To date, Tupac’s catalog has sold 67 million records worldwide, with his posthumous releases exceeding sales of 20 million.

    Oh my God you can’t further his creative aspect anymore. Do some shit for the community in his name. Put his legacy to good use, don’t just milk it by recycling everything we’ve heard a fillion times already. We remember your son Ma. We will not forget Pac anytime soon.

    First off to all the stupid people who say Afeni is milking Pac and she should stop producing music- SHUT UP! I 11 years later still mourn Pac and treasure all that his family does to keep his legacy alive. You people dont understand that Pac lived for his family- his mom his sister his aunt and cousins- he wants to take care of them. He always has because he believes in the importance of family. If you disagree with something that is going down write Afeni voice your concerns- she may not change, but I personally know she apperciates the feedback- if you do it in a respectful manner. After all she is one of our great civil rights leaders who risked her life for the advancment of minorities everywhere!!! I have met Afeni and she is a beautiful woman who has paid her dues. If you sick of Pac dont buy it, but ME I’m looking forward to the video game, the play or anything else Amaru put’s out! and by the way losers-remember that haters never prosper.. HAHA!! THUG 4 LIFE
    THUG N PEACE MAKAVELI AND YAK IMMA RYDE TILL I DIE!!!
