There have been big changes to the state of some of Tupac Shakur’s previously unreleased music.
A bundle of recordings the hip-hop icon made before his death have been returned to his estate as part of a settlement to a drawn-out legal struggle.
Tupac’s estate had accused the Entertainment One company in a 2013 lawsuit of keeping a stranglehold on the rapper’s unheard master tracks, as well as on royalties for his music.
The “Changes” rapper’s music will now be returned to his estate, while a six-figure payment will be made to cover the royalties, according to TMZ.
It’s currently unclear what the future holds for those unreleased tracks, or if there is any plan to release them to the public.
Shakur’s mother, Afeni, had been at the forefront of her son’s estate, and the legal battle for his recordings continued on after her death in 2016.
Tupac died at the age of 25 in 1996 in an unsolved drive-by shooting.
