Earlier this year, Hulu & FX released this documentary series titled Dear Mama: The Saga of Afeni & Tupac Shakur streaming online.

Tupac was tragically killed in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996, only the year after releasing his track “Dear Mama”, and Afeni Shakur passed away in 2016 after carrying on his legacy for all of these years.
