Amaru Entertainment was a record label founded by 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 2Pac, 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 has also released 8 posthumous albums by 2Pac and a documentary, Tupac: Resurrection. On May 2, 2016, Afeni Shakur died of a heart attack.
