We, as the true fans of 2Pac\'s music, request that Afeni Shakur and Amaru Records allow Suge Knight and Death Row Records to release a brand new album of 2Pac material in its original form.
We have suffered through multiple unnecessary changes and remixes to Tupac\'s music combined with the addition of artists that he either never knew or never liked and, for the most part, we have continued to support Amaru Records through every single release.
We, the original 2Pac fans, are responsible for the financial success of all of his posthumous albums and we have not been shown the respect that we deserve as true 2Pac fans.
We also understand that this is a business, and that Amaru Records has a right to protect what it feels that is rightfully theirs, so as a compromise, we request that both sides allow the album to be co-branded with both Amaru and Death Row and that Amaru receives a certain percentage of royalties (to be determined by both parties involved) from the album sales.
In any other genre with any other artist, remixing and watering down a deceased artist\'s unreleased material would be unheard of and would surely cause an uproar, so why is it permissible in hip-hop Is not 2Pac just as must of an artist as Elvis or Jimi Hendrix We request that both parties involved find a reasonable solution so that this album can be released in its original form. We have supported Amaru through thick and thin and, quite frankly, Amaru owes us one.
Please, for the sake of every fan that has followed 2Pac loyally through the years, release this album as is!
