Tupac’s mother fights for songs

She tries to stop his record label selling unreleased recordings

Tupac Shakur’s mother is attempting to stop his former record label selling unreleased recordings as part of a bankruptcy settlement.

Afeni Shakur is seeking an injunction in a bankruptcy court claiming Death Row Records is attempting to sell material that belongs to his estate.

Her lawyer said that all unreleased material should have been turned over to the estate as part of a 1997 agreement.

The court is expected to consider the request in the next month, reports BBC News.

It will also decided whether Death Row should be allowed to released an album with the unreleased tracks to help pay its debts, according to Afeni Shakur’s lawyer Donald David.

The legal team representing Death Row Records was not available for comment.

Label head Suge Knight sought bankruptcy protection in Apriil 2006, claiming debuts of more than £48.5 million for both himself and the record label.

Last month he placed his seven-bedroom home on the market for £3 million as part of his financial overhaul.
