Also back in the news this week was the late Death Row star Tupac Shakur, who had a new double album in the racks -- a collection of old, unreleased material called "Are You Still Down," assembled by his mother, Afeni Shakur. She was also behind the video for the album's first single, "I Wonder If Heaven Got A Ghetto," which has a clip featuring a life-saving team of government nuns, and a bus-driving Tupac picking up other dead celebrities on his way to heaven.
We were a little puzzled, too.
AFENI SHAKUR: Tupac understood about his time limits here and Tupac worked like a demon to make sure that he had probably about 10 years worth of music to put out after he left. So to that extent I think that just leaves us with the mechanics of doing the work. Tupac left us a lot of work to do, so I'm really glad to be able to do it.
LIONEL MARTIN, Video Director: The concept is that Tupac is so powerful an individual as far as his music and controversial views, that he's
not really dead. So what we've done is taken the incident after the baby shoot, and left a possibility, however small it might be, that he's still alive.
Afeni Shakur also turned up in this week's "People Magazine," along with a photo of Tupac at the age of seven, and the information that she spread some of her son's ashes on her vegetable garden.
