There’s a whole reservoir of unreleased Tupac Shakur material out there that will finally see the light of day. The deceased rapper’s family has given total control over to JAM, inc., the same company responsible for releasing posthumous material from The Doors, Janis Joplin, Otis Redding and more.
According to Rolling Stone, Jeff Jampol, owner of JAM, inc., has dug through “unreleased music, released music, remixes, original demos, writings, scripts, plans, video treatments [and] poems” from the rapper, who was murdered in the mid-90s.
The project will mark a “total reset of the Shakur estate,” says Jampol.
So far, Tupac has made an “appearance” in a Powerade commercial in which he recites a line from “Mama’s Just A Little Girl” (watch below). He also pops up on Kendrick Lamar’s new album To Pimp a Butterfly, with an old interview from 1994 refurbished into a “conversation” between Shakur and Lamar on the track “Mortal Men.”
