Amaru Entertainment was founded by Tupac Shakur's mother, Afeni Shakur, in early 1997 to handle the release of the unreleased material her son had created before his death on September 13, 1996. After the death of Shakur, the label inherited the rights to 2Pacalypse Now, Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z, Thug Life Vol. 1, and Me Against the World. Amaru Entertainment has also released eight posthumous albums by Tupac Shakur and one documentary, Tupac: Resurrection. On May 2, 2016, Afeni Shakur died of a possible cardiac arrest
