Hollywood, CA (PressExposure) September 03, 2008 -- ThugLifeArmy.com was blessed to be the only web site to sit down with Afeni Shakur-Davis in this âweb exclusiveâ interview. The best known âMommaâ among the hip hop culture, Afeni Shakur-Davis is much more than the mother of late hip hop rap artist Tupac Shakur (2Pac).
Afeni opened up in this interview and spoke on many topics. Topics range from her son Tupac and the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation and Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Stone Mountain Georgia, to hip hop, to her own legacy and everything in-between. This interview brings out a great side of Afeni, one that is seldom seen. She laughs, she cries and the commitment to her son Tupac is evident thru out the interview.
A very loving spirit pours thru her words as she answers the questions put forth to her. She has an overwhelming love and commitment towards children and the youth of the hip hop nation. She talks about the summer camps held in Oakland and Atlanta this past summer.
She talks about the trip to South Africa and the work the TASF is doing there. She is a very giving and caring person but also very humble and this interview shines a light on her persona.
One thing that is dear to Afeniâs heart is the completion of the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts Visitor Center and Peace Garden in Stone Mountain, Georgia. In this interview she explains her âcommitmentâ to Tupac, and getting the Arts Center finished is one thing that she wants to see finished. Hip hop and even the mainstream society should want to see the Center finished for all the work they do and for preserving the legacy of Tupac Amaru Shakur. Afeni Shakur-Davis has given so much and has asked for nothing in return. It is time we all stand up and help her finish the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts. Not just for Afeni but for us as the hip hop community and for our children and for their children.
