Tupac Estate Files $1.1 Million Lawsuit Against Entertainment One

Tupac's estate files a $1.1 million lawsuit against E1 for a breach of contract.

Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, who is the co-administrator of Tupac's estate, has reportedly filed a $1.1 million lawsuit against Entertainment One, according to TMZ

The lawsuit claims Entertainment One (E1) breached a contract to pay Tupac's estate royalties for Beginnings: The Lost Tapes, a project released in June 2007, as per TMZ. 

E1 reportedly purchased rights to Tupac's music in July 2013 from Death Row Records, which used to own the rights to the material. Death Row reportedly went bankrupt in 2006, as per TMZ. 

Tupac's estate is also seeking the ownership of the master recordings for all of Tupac's unreleased music.

In February, Jampol Artist Management signed on to manage the estate of Tupac Shakur.

"I believe it is our responsibility to make sure that Tupac's entire body of work is made available for his fans," Afeni Shakur in a statement about the deal. "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."

    "He still gets a check cut for his movie reruns" It's peanuts, and after all these years of 2pac being dead Afeni shouldn't need to worry how many times BET is going to air Poetic Justice for her to get a small check.

    Hollywood - At some point Afeni Shakur has to let go and fully let it sink in that 2pac is dead. I don't care how much unreleased music he still has rotting in a vault somewhere. If she needs money that bad go get a job and move on with yourself. You need to move on yourself, and take your sad commentary with you. Need a tissue? lol You sound like an idiot crying over the fact Pac's mom is still relying on him to provide her a life she could never provide for herself.

      You get paid royalties when your music is played on radio, movies, commercials, arenas, sporting events, runways, malls, elevators, jukeboxes, karaoke nights. He still gets a check cut for his movie reruns. Publishing is a very lucrative business and you look stupid trying to say she needs money and should get a job. Now you move on and take that sad commentary with you.

    Keep letting them know they're guests. Continue to laugh at these young boys who hate their momma but rely on her for everything they do.
