|She is at peace with her son.|
Afeni Shakur, the mother of the late rapper Tupac Shakur passed away today. The mother who inspired her son for greatness was found dead in her Marin County, California home.
The family confirmed that she passed away from an apparent heart attack.
Shakur was an activist and motivational speaker. She urged rappers to put aside their differences for the sake of the Black community. There was a brutal hip-hop war between the West coast and the East coast. It led to the deaths of her son and his longtime rival the Notorious B.I.G. (Biggie Smalls).
Her name became famous in the 1995 Tupac Shakur single "Dear Mama" off the Me Against the World album.
Afeni Shakur sued Death Row for all of Tupac's music and licensing fees. She was awarded a cache of unreleased music, movie reels and poems from the rapper who many saw as a poetic but yet troubled soul.
Shakur led the fight to get a museum in her son's honor.
|The queen of a pride. Afeni Shakur fought to have her son Tupac Shakur's legacy preserved.|
World News Today send our condolences to the family of Afeni Shakur. The legacy of Tupac Shakur will forever be etched in music history. Afeni, a beautiful woman in the fight for equality in America.
Afeni Shakur you will be missed by me and S. Baldwin.
