EXCLUSIVE: Mac Dre’s Mother Recalls Relationship With Afeni Shakur


(AllHipHop News) Just months ago AllHipHop.com reported an exclusive news story on Mac Dre’s mother Mac Wanda, where she spoke on her relationship with Afeni Shakur.

The two mothers had grown closer after both of their rapping sons were murdered at the hands of the game. In the interview Mac Wanda broke down her relationship with Tupac Shakur’s mother, Afeni Shakur.

She revealed that she’d spent some time with Afeni as they both tried to make sense of the loss of their sons.

“Afeni and I have become friends. She’s invited me to her home a couple of times and she and I have compared stories and notes on what our sons have gone through. She and her daughter continue to coach me in this business,” Mac Wanda explained to AllHipHop.com in March.

Mac Dre’s mother said the two spoke on a regular basis and help each other cope with their respective losses.

“Ever since Andre’s death it has grown and has not stopped growing. I’ve had to come out of my mourning and grief and handle the business, so I’ve been getting a lot of coaching from her on how to handle this. I haven’t talked to Biggie’s mother, but I talk to Afeni on a regular basis,” Mac Wanda said back in March.

Mac Dre’s mother said she identified with Afeni and her loss, which helped her find ways to cope with losing Mac Dre.

“The first time we met, we sat together just the two of us and we just talked about what she’s gone through and what I’m going through. She’s been where I’m going and for me to sit and listen to her tell me her story and the things she’s gone through, how she’s coped, I can totally identify.”
