LOS ANGELES — Tupac Shakur’s mother is seeking to prevent his former label, Death Row Records Inc., from selling the late rapper’s unreleased recordings as part of a bankruptcy settlement.
Afeni Shakur sought an injunction in federal bankruptcy court Friday claiming Death Row was attempting to sell Shakur material that belonged to the rapper’s estate.
Unreleased recordings should have been turned over to the estate as part of a 1997 agreement with the record label, said attorney Donald N. David, who represents the estate.
But during Death Row’s bankruptcy proceedings, “it was revealed that an album’s worth of unreleased Tupac material was being advertised to potential buyers as the jewel in the crown of the Death Row assets,” David said. [Source]
