2Pac’s Stepfather To Be Featured On BET’s “American Gangster”

The stepfather to rap icon’s 2Pac, Mutulu Shakur, will be featured on the new season of BET’s breakout hit, “American Gangster.”

The elder Shakur has spent the past 25 years in federal prison after being convicted for his part in concocting a bank truck robbery that left three dead. He was also implicated in the plot to help his sister Assata Shakur escape prison, which enabled her to receive political asylum in Cuba.

In addition to Shakur, the FBI’s Cointelpro initiative, Nicky Barnes cohort Guy Fisher, and Larry Davis will also be profiled.

BET’s “American Gangster” kicked off with a series of interview subjects ranging from Crips founder Stanley “Tookie” Williams to “Freeway” Ricky Ross.

The new season begins October 23 with an episode on Larry Davis.—Anthony Thomas
