Tupac's Mother Sues Record Label for $1M Over Unpaid Royalties


Afeni Shakur, the late rapper's mother, says Entertainment One fails to pay royalties to her son's posthumous release, 2007's 'Beginnings: The Lost Tapes 1988-1991'.

The family of Tupac Shakur is suing a record label over alleged unpaid royalties. TMZ reports that Afeni Shakur, Tupac's mother and family co-administrator, has filed a lawsuit against Entertainment One after claiming that the company breached a contract to pay royalties to Tupac's "Beginnings: The Lost Tapes 1988-1991" that was released in June 2007.

According to the suit, Entertainment One (formerly known as Koch Records) bought the rights to Tupac's music in July this year from Death Row Records, which went bankrupt in 2006. Afeni now says that Entertainment One owes Tupac's estate $1.1 million.

The 66-year-old woman also demands the company to hand over the master recordings of all her son's unreleased music. The company hasn't commented on the news.

Tupac died after getting shot multiple times back in 1996. His posthumous release, "Beginnings: The Lost Tapes 1988-1991", contained some of Tupac's first songs recorded in 1988.
