HollyHood Filmz to Produce Dear Mama: The Life Story of Afeni Shakur

afeni1.jpgHollyHood Filmz, an independent film production company headed by Tupac protégé Young Noble of The Outlawz and Omar “Ice Man” Sharif, has acquired the rights to Dear Mama: The Life Story of Afeni Shakur. The film will chronicle the life of ‘Pac’s mother from her birth as Alice Faye Williams in Lumberton, N.C. to her battles with record labels for the rights to her son’s posthumous material. Also covered in the film will be the extraordinary story of Afeni’s time with the Black Panther Party, her struggles with drug addiction and the murder of her son. “The Dear Mama story is long overdue…I’m just so blessed to be in a position to produce this movie and make sure Afeni and ‘Pac is proud when its done, this movie will offer hope and be an inspiration to the millions of people who will see it,” said Young Noble. “This incredible lady defended herself in court while pregnant with 2Pac during a bomb conspiracy trial facing 352 years and was acquitted of 156 counts against her and 20 other members of the Black Panther Party! I felt that the world needs to know where 2Pac got his mind, heart, spirit and courage so I called Afeni with the idea. She was excited and gave me her blessing.” HollyHood Filmz is currently seeking out top producers, directors and actors for the biopic. Additionally, the Dear Mama soundtrack will be produced by Young Buck and The Outlawz for Cashville Records and 1 Nation Entertainment in association with Amaru Entertainment. Artists expected to appear on the compilation include Young Buck, The Outlawz, 50 Cent and T.I.
