FX Networks announced a five-part documentary series “Outlaw: The Saga of Afeni and Tupac Shakur” that will explore the lives of both Tupac and his mother, Afeni Shakur.

Directed by Allen Hughes, the docuseries will be told through the eyes of people who knew both of them best while also expanding their message of equality, freedom, persecution, and justice which has become even more relevant today.

Tupac’s relationship with his mother was always rocky but was immortalized in Tupac’s 1995 single “Dear Mama,” which appeared on his album “Me Against the World.” 

The rapper, who was killed in a drive-by shooting in 1996, has had his story explored many times but FX mentions that their series will take a deeper look at the inspiring and dangerous mother-son duo in American history. 

FX has yet to announce the release date.
