Tupac Shakur is largely regarded as the most influential rapper of all time, with over 75 million albums sold worldwide. Since Shakur’s death, five full albums have been released, all of which have been certified Platinum.

“What Tupac saw in himself, in the stories he felt were worthy of conveying, and what binds everyone to each other,” the collection description continues.

The estate of Tupac Shakur was projected to be valued at roughly $40 million in 2020. Afeni Shakur, his mother, oversaw his estate until she died in 2016. Trustees of Tupac’s estate, according to sources, are now in charge of the rapper’s fortune. Tupac was believed to owe his record label three albums in exchange for bail money to get out of prison, despite being worth $40 million.
