Afeni Shakur Dies at age 69


Afeni Shakur Davis, the mother of late rap legend Tupac Shakur, died on Monday, May 2. She was 69. 

According to the New York Daily News, police responded to Davis' home in Sausalito, California, on Monday, after she had reportedly suffered from cardiac arrest. Police said on Tuesday, May 3, that she was rushed to the hospital, where she passed away shortly before 10:30 p.m. local time.


Davis welcomed her son, Tupac, in June 1971. She was an activist and a member of the Black Panther Party, which heavily influenced Tupac’s politically-charged music throughout his career. Davis and her son remained close throughout his upbringing in East Harlem, NYC, and the rapper even dedicated his 1995 hit, "Dear Mama," from his third studio album, Me Against the World, to his mom. The song eventually landed at No. 9 on the Billboard Top 100 chart.

    Harriet Tubman on $20 Bill




    Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced Wednesday that the Treasury Department will remove Andrew Jackson's face from the $20 bill and replace him with Harriet Tubman.

    This change was expected, but it wasn't known which woman would replace Jackson. Tubman's name had been floated as a likely candidate, however.

    Alexander Hamilton's face will also stay on the front of the $10 bill, and won't be replaced by a woman as was previously speculated.

    Brandy Sues Record Label for $1 Million





    It's been about four years since R&B sensation Brandy Norwood has released a new album. Though she's been working on other business ventures like tv shows, Broadway, and more, it seems the singer is ready to come clean about what's been holding up an album release. 
    Tuesday Brandy sued her record label for $1 million stating that she refuses to release an album under a contract that would allow Chameleon Entertainment to double dip at her expenses. She recently has filed a suit against Chameleon and the owner Breyon Prescott. Prescott is trying to get her to sign to Epic while also releasing her album through Chameleon, which would give him twice the profit. 
    It looks as if Chameleon is obligated to release her albums, but they refuse to do so until she signs with Epic. Brandy is suing for compensatory damages, plus punitive damages, for international interference with contract, interference with business relations, and business law violations.
