The estate of Tupac Shakur just settled a five-year-old lawsuit with Death Row Records over royalties owed to the late rapper and now at least 2 new Tupac albums will soon be released.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Tupac’s estate filed documents this week stating the two sides have agreed to settle the suit. Shakur’s now-deceased mother, Afeni, had previously filed the case against Entertainment One, which bought Death Row a few years back, and claimed they were owed over a million bucks.
Sources close to the deal tell us a cash settlement was made that will go to Tupac’s estate, but the estate will also be getting a ton of unreleased recordings the late rapper made.
We’re told there are enough master recordings for at least 2, and possibly 3 new albums. As of now there is not a date set for when they will drop, but we’re told the plan is to start cranking them out ASAP.
As for the money made from the albums, we’re told that aside from Tupac’s beneficiaries, like his sister, getting big windfalls of cash, there will also be large contributions made to charities that meant a lot to both Tupac and his mother.
