The death of the late Tupac Shakur’s mother, Afeni Shakur has hit the music industry hard. Afeni wasn’t just the mother of a famous rapper; rather a pillar in the community, a philanthropist and a woman who stood for something.
Shakur died on Monday at the age of 69 and already, tributes are pouring out across all social media platforms from celebrities and from those who knew and loved the former Black Panther.
Jada Pinkett Smith, who was dear friends with Tupac, wrote on Facebook:
Tyrese wrote on Instagram:
“One of the most sincere mothers I’ve ever known…….. Your son was on your mind and prayers everyday thank you for giving birth to Hip Hop thank you everything you stood for……. You embraced me and my daughter – sending love to my sisters and family I’m in the Middle East Qatar and my heart hurts from here.”
