Estate Of Tupac Shakur Joins Jampol Artist Management

Jampol Artist Management has signed on to manage the estate of Tupac Shakur.

It looks like the estate of the slain Tupac Shakur will be placed under new management.

In a recent report from Billboard, Tupac's mother Afeni Shakur announced that Jampol Artist Management will be taking over the management duties of her late son's estate. It was also revealed that Jampol will be working with Tom Whalley, the label executive who first signed Tupac to Interscope Records, to release previously unheard music. 

"I believe it is our responsibility to make sure that Tupac's entire body of work is made available for his fans," said Afeni Shakur in a statement. "My son left many incomplete pieces and even more unfinished ideas. Using the blueprints he gave us, I am committed to fulfilling this duty...[we] will find innovative ways to continue to keep his music, his message, and his legacy alive."

Jampol founder and president Jeffery Jampol echoed Afeni's statement, saying that, "It's our responsibility - and our privilege - to ensure that new generations of fans experience the power of Tupac's music, his ideas and his storytelling,"

In addition to Tupac, Jampol currently manages the likes of the Doors, Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, Peter Tosh and Henry Mancini. Jeffery Jampol himself also advises in the management of the late Michael Jackson's estate.

Earlier today, DX spoke to Tupac's personal videographer Gobi M. Rahimi about the rapper's final days before his death in 1996. Rahimi alleged that Suge Knight may have falsified reports of getting shot on the night of Shakur's death.

    "Best rapper alive still goes to Tupac Amaru Shakur!" Eminem would disagree with you there.

      They could stand together at the top for all I care

      2Pac was one of Eminem's biggest influences. Eminem himself, from his own mouth, said that 2Pac was the greatest rapper ever. You might wanna learn a little about the music and its artists before assuming stuff...

    All this Lesane news is insane! It's giving me the feeling he is gonna return in 2014. If he comes back I wonder how much his style has changed and what he has learned wherever he's been. So I'll just sit back and wait one more year for what I've been waiting for my whole life. Best rapper alive still goes to Tupac Amaru Shakur!

    "Nope...actually she did this to protect his estate and to keep his legacy alive" Maybe so, but this legacy was worth over $15 million in 2008. No doubt she loved her son, but they don't call it the music business for nothing, cause if it was just about releasing music from the vault, she could have just had somebody put it on-line for free.

    whenever we lose such an influential person we try to keep that legacy going, but honestly, tupac's legacy is long gone. I loved what he brought to the game back in the day, but just like biggie, we have to let it go. It's gone, but long live the brother and bless his mom's heart for loving her son the way she does. That's what any mother would do.

      Too Much "let it go" talk... This is how Jazz got forgotten... We gonna "let go" the culture that brought you here to this site in the first place. You know what "let it Go" results in? it results Ryan Seacrest being the Host of Soul Train & Vanilla Ice having a greater legacy than Tupac. Newtown CT being the new Compton CA and your girl that signed to Sony that look like Amy Winehouse having a greater impact on Hip Hop than Queen Latifah..Let it Go huh??? Let it Go so like Black History Month all contributions by black artist can be forgotten. Let it Go so history can be HIS STORY 1000 years from now..... Come on fam "Letting it GO" is the reason why you can't name off the top of your head (without googling) the Black contributions to the very world you live in today.....

    2pac is a legend. But honestly I havnt heard anything good from him since the first 2 releases after his death.
  • Anonymous
    I disagree...He wants his mom livin poverty free, She raised him to be who he was,if it wasn't for her, he wouldn't be the revolutionary his is. they put out that REAL unheard from Pac, that deep revolutionary/liberating music, she still grindin as is he.

    He would be even more ashamed of how his mother has steadily made money off his name.

      Nope...actually she did this to protect his estate and to keep his legacy alive...Do you know how much of Pac's stash has been abused over the years by that shady Death Row regime??? There has been so many unathorized leaks to his music without his mother's permission...he left her in charge of his estate, who else did he have???? Suge, the main dude that was robbing him??? She did the right thing by going to a LEGIT management company to handle his unreleased music...do you honestly think Pac made those songs to be stashed away forever??? She's releasing his music so his legacy and ontributions to hip hop wont be forgotten...and not to mention change the way he is perceieved throughout pop culture and the media...this is a good look by Afeni...
    • ez to blame suge
      You say shady Death row regime but who ever leak the records did us a favor. The music afeni has giving the green light to has been fucked up by hot for the moment producers and wack rappers that Pac would have never worked with. I'd gladly buy the original recordings that Pac made but not some shit thats thrown together for a quick buck that sounds like tash and edits pac lyrics and song meaning. Loyal to the game and Pac life was some bullshit the way it was put out, so Im glad for the bootlegs. and IF/WHEN they put out pac's music with the original beats and rappers I'd by that

    Shit more on his legacy, tupac would be ashamed of these record label white boys squeezing the last drops out his catalog
