Yesterday, 2Pac’s “Dear Mama” was inducted into the National Recording Registry. The late honoree’s mother, Afeni Shakur spoke on her son’s behalf. You are appreciated.
“I’m incredibly touched. It could have been any song, but I’m honored they chose ‘Dear Mama’ in particular. It is a song that spoke not just to me, but every mother that has been in that situation, and there have been millions of us. Tupac recognized our struggle, and he is still our hero.”
