Shakur’s estate was valued at around $40 Million in 2020. Afeni Shakur was his mother and managed the estate of her son until her death in 2016. According to reports, trustees of Tupac’s estate are now managing the rapper’s inheritance. Tupac is believed to have owed three albums to his record label in return for money bail.
