A whole host of unreleased music by the rap legend Tupac Shakur is to see the light of day soon
apper, poet and songwriting hero Tupac Shakur was noted for being a prolific writer during his lifetime. There is though a raft of music that went unreleased prior to his death in September 1996 that is set to become available, as advised by Jeff Jampol, president of JAM Inc, the company responsible for Shakur’s estate.
Working together with Tupac’s mother and Tom Whalley, the man who signed the rapper Interscope in 1991, Jampol has been reviewing the vast amount of unreleased music held in Tupac’s estate. When speaking to Billboard Jampol said that the estate has, “unreleased music, released music, remixes, original demos, writings, scripts, plans, video treatments, poems.” Jampol went on to say “Some of it is good, some of it needs work. But I think the work that is left can be completed, and is worth his fans hearing.”
JAM Inc has history with making the unreleased material of late musicians available, having done so for Michael Jackson, the Ramones and The Doors. With the 20th anniversary of Tupac’s death coming next September there is the suggestion that his unreleased work will be made available at that time.
In life he was a great and in death nothing changes.
