New York, NY (PRWEB) March 4, 2005
In this exclusive interview by PR.comÂs Allison Kugel, Dina LaPolt opens up on joining forces with Afeni Shakur after TupacÂs untimely death, unfreezing millions of dollars in unpaid royalties to the late rapper and building TupacÂs Estate into a thriving production and merchandising empire!
In the interview, Dina also praises the unwavering dedication of Eminem in contributing to ÂTupac: Resurrection,Â the Academy Award nominated documentary about TupacÂs life and most recently co-executive producing TupacÂs latest album, ÂLoyal to the GameÂ alongside Afeni Shakur.
Dina expresses both her and Afeni ShakurÂs enthusiasm about THE TUPAC AMARU SHAKUR CENTER FOR THE ARTS which is being built in Atlanta, GA as a public school for the Performing Arts, dedicated in TupacÂs name.
Some valuable Sound Bites from the Interview:
ÂTupac, when he died, he left behind 154 unreleased master recordings. He told everyone he was gonna die.Â
ÂWhen Tupac died, nothing was papered on his behalf. They were still allowed to release all his albums notwithstanding the fact that none of the paperwork was done, and they just didn't pay him. They just froze all the royalty streams and kept their profits.Â
ÂDina, Oh My God! I got the cutest letter from Eminem!" "Dear AfeniÂ I would like to produce the entire album. I am such a huge fan of your sonÂ " ÂAfeni Shakur on EminemÂs letter to her.Â
ÂI was in battle every day, fighting Death Row [Records] who was sending cease and desist letters to everybody and scaring the pants off of everybody.Â
ÂEveryone who meets AfeniÂ you fall in love with her. You just can't help it. Everybody who works for her company and the lawyers here at my firm, we have this mission, which is her mission, of building the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts.Â
