Tupac To Live On In Poetry

The late Tupac Shakur would have turned 27 last weekend, and his mother is making sure his legacy will continue.

Afeni Shakur, mother of the slain rapper, hosted a birthday celebration in her son's memory last weekend outside of Atlanta. Afeni has other Tupac projects in the works as she told MTV News' Chris Connelly last weekend.

"Let me tell you one of the things that we're really excited about unreleased is his poetry," Shakur said. "We are prayerful, prayerful that we are going to be able to release his poems as a studio spoken word project, coupled with the written word. I have just this slight ear that some company that you know, MTV fans is interested in doing this spoken word project, so you keep your fingers crossed."
