Jay-Z Not Buying Tupac Shakur’s Unreleased Music

This may be a good thing for Jay-Z not to purchase because of his image and status. Not only is he not on +Tupac Amaru status, +Jayz Carter is publicly known for having former beef with Tupac. Rumors that hip-hop mogul Jay Z and Roc Nation have purchased the music catalog of Tupac Shakur‘s unreleased material for $384 million are not true, Billboard has confirmed.

The false rumors began surfacing on social media Saturday (March 28) that Jay Z had purchased Shakur’s unreleased work from Entertainment One. Some reportsalso noted that a new album from the late rapper — titled And Now I Rise – would be released in 2016, with features by Snoop Dogg, Drake, Nas, The-Dream, DMX, Beyonce and Jay Z.

As the 20th anniversary of the Shakur’s September 1996 death approaches, elements in the works include new apparel rolling out later in 2015, collections like a recent Grammy Museum exhibit showcasing his writing, and a biography by a “very serious writer” whose deal is being finalized, Jampol recently told Billboard.
