(INTELLIHB) — In an interview filmed after her son’s alleged death, Afeni Shakur-Davis, mother of the late famous rapper Tupac Shakur, admits that her son was “tired of fighting” and hinted that the famous rapper may still be alive and in hiding.
It’s well known that Tupac was, in his own words, just “trying’ to sell records,” however, his life in the fast lane would keep landing the rap superstar into trouble and even winded up getting him shot for the first time in November of 1994 at the age of 23 in the lobby of Quad Recording Studios in Manhattan where he suffered five gunshot wounds which he later recovered from.
“He was tired of fighting. He was tired of being vilified. He was tired of being called things that he knew inside of himself he was unable to be,” Afeni Shakur-Davis said. “I think he was just tired.”
She went on to say, “He had a right. Basically, he had a right and I couldn’t change it as a mother. You’re powerless. Can’t change it. Can’t make it right. Can’t fix it for my baby. So you know, I wish he was here every day but I don’t want him to be unhappy. And I know that my son […] chose his life and he chose — you know — in the end, he chose to leave quietly — and I think I can leave him alone.”
