There is a post on some web sites and in many fan forums on the net concerning Tupac Shakurs new album ‘Loyal to the Game’ and a statement that was allegedly made by Jimmy Iovine, CEO of Interscope Records.
The statement is supposedly in response to a fan petition that has been circulating regarding fans un-happiness with the album.
I have check with sources at Interscope Records and they confirm that this statement is not true.
We would encourage sites and moderators of fan forums to be more careful about spreading ‘rumors’ and posting things without a source or without checking it out first.
The statement that is floating around follows, PLEASE remember this has been confirmed as not true by Interscope sources.
"As CEO of Interscope Records this petition was brought to my attention by an intern. Afeni Shakur and I have had several meetings in regards to the Tupac legacy and this album has already been accepted by my myself and my management staff. I have been assured by Afeni herself that an album of "untouched, unreleased material" from 2Pac is scheduled for release in the 4th quarter of 2005. I am not certain on what is going to be on the CD but each song will be full unedited verses from 2Pac. Johny J has been asked to exectutive produce the album and only produces that have worked extensively with 2Pac will be approached. I hope this changes peoples mind about the release of this CD. Any serious inquiries can be sent to the following address - Interscope Records, 2220 Colorado Avenue Santa Monica, CA 90404."
