Afeni Shakur

Afeni Shakur, a longtime political activist and mother of the late rap legend Tupac, has tragically passed away at the age of 69.

According to the Marin County Sheriff's Office in Sausalito, CA, police responded to a report of cardiac arrest at Shakur's home around 9:43 p.m. and transported her to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead not even an hour later.

Devastating.

As we told you in March, Afeni recently filed for divorce from her husband of 12 years, who was supposedly gunning for half of her son's estate. Yikes!

Authorities say a coroner will investigate the exact cause of death, but for now it seems to be an apparent heart attack.

We'll keep you updated as more information becomes available.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Shakur family during this difficult time.

new tupac projects in the works

Tupac fans rejoice! There are a few new Tupac projects on the way.

Hip-hop journalist/political activist Kevin Powell has signed a deal with Simon & Schuster to release a bio on Tupac entitled Tupac Shakur: The Authorized Biography.

That's right, it's completely authorized by Tupac's mom, Afeni Shakur.

Here's what she had to say about it:

“Kevin Powell is doing this Tupac Shakur biography with my full blessings. I trust him and his history of documenting my son’s life, and I know he will do the book from his heart.”

Here's what Powell had to say about the project:

"It is an honor to write what will be the definitive biography on the life and times of Tupac Shakur, one of the greatest icons in hip-hop and pop culture history.”

No word yet on a release date for the bio, but on Jan 26, the Tupac-related documentary film Uncensored and Uncut: The Lost Prison Tapes will be released. The doc is all about the time that the rapper spent in prison.

Tupac will also be gracing the big screen again in Training Day director Antoine Fuqua's upcoming biopic about the last day of the rapper's life.

Exciting times for Tupac fans! Plenty of opportunities to get your fix, without having to wear out those Tupac: Resurrection DVDs!

Are U looking forward to these new Tupac projects?
