His mom should have the right because Death Row Records is just trying to capatilize off Tupac's death. Tupac had a record deal with them and when he was murdered they lost out on lots of money so they're tryin to squeeze money out Tupac especially because he became even more famous after his death.

Both mom and son are/were thugs. She deserves nothing but memories of how she could have raised him to be a decent human being instead of a thug.

I don't think Tupac or his mother were lowlifes. Being a single, teenage parent myself, I know that they lived through rough financial and social emotional times for poor and Black people in America. Most people couldn't imagine how rough it was to be a poor single parent during the 80's when there were almost no jobs and there was increasing hatred of hard struggling single parents. I know that God was watching as those who claimed to be religious worked to destroy single parents who were giving up everything to raise their children often with extremely low amounts of money. Tupac was the voice that most mainstream people never heard. He let people know about the hopes, dreams and feelings of futility experienced by young African American and other poor young people. He worked to raise the feelings of self esteem of single parents and the downtrodden. To me he is an angel and so is his mom!

If tupunks baby momma would have raised him right he would not have become a (c)rapper and may have actually been a productive member of civilized society.(c)rap 'music' is an affront to western civilization and is only fit for uneducated dolts!

wtf is this shit

Tupac had a baby momma? No
You speak for the whole western civilisation? No

How was the guy not a productive member of society? Do you know how many people he has inspired? How many people he brought joy to?

He made hundreds and hundreds of songs. He was a great songwriter. Had heaps of poems that were published. Several movies in which he starred alongside well known celebs like Janet Jackson, dennis quaid, james belushi, tim roth, mickey rourke and others like omar epps, marlon wayans, duane martin and more.
He did heaps of charity work too.
How many people you know have done all this by the age of 26? For me when I was a teen 2Pac was a decent role model. one of the best things he inspired me to do was read. Not just read but to take it all in and question it.
You talk about uneducated? Tupac read books like:
The Tibetan Book of the Dead,
The Prince - Machiavelli
Kabbalah
Moby Dick
Sun tzu's the art of war
catcher in the rye
Bhagvad gita
and heaps of others. How many uneducated people under age of 26 read books like that?
Not trying to say intelligence comes from only reading, but just trying to give you some kind of insight into life of person your talking about but know nothing about. hell you dont even know what a baby momma is :/

Well said, and Tupac was a master of delivery that many of us studied during those bright days in the 1990s.
