After the passing of Afeni Shakur earlier this week, the estate of Tupac is set to transition into new hands.
According to a report from TMZ, the West Coast rap legend’s mother set up a trust and the executor is former Warner Bros. CEO Tom Whalley. The executive was the one who signed Tupac to Interscope in the 1990s, was already assisting Shakur in overseeing the estate.
The trust has been and continues to be specific about where the money goes, including to charity and the family. Shakur was in the process of a divorce at the time of her death and her estranged husband is not listed in the trust, so the site says “Tupac’s money and music will be virtually untouchable.”
The estate has been selective into how it allows Tupac’s music and likeness to be used. Recently, Tupac was featured in a Powerade advertisement with Derrick Rose. The Tupac estate released a statement on Twitter regarding Shakur’s passing. She inspired the Platinum-single “Dear Mama.”
