Tupac Shakur's Mother

Tupac Shakur's mother has vowed to release the late rapper's "entire body of work" so new generations of fans can experience his previously unheard music.

The hip-hop star was killed in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996, aged 25 and his mother, Afeni Shakur, is head of his estate and founder of the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation, which helps underprivileged children receive education and training.

Shakur has now handed over her son's estate to Jampol Artist Management (JAM) and indicates there is more music to be released.

She says in a statement, "I believe it is our responsibility to make sure that Tupac's entire body of work is made available for his fans. My son left many incomplete pieces and even more unfinished ideas. Using the blueprints he gave us, I am committed to fulfilling this duty."

Tupac ShakurJAM founder and president Jeffrey Jampol says, "It's our responsibility, and our privilege, to ensure that new generations of fans experience the power of Tupac's music, his ideas and his storytelling."

JAM is adding Tupac to a roster which includes The Doors, Janis Joplin and Otis Redding, according to Billboard.com.

-- Rapper MC Hammer launched a string of tweets Saturday with his side of the story two days after he was arrested in northern California for allegedly obstructing an officer.

Among his tweets, Hammer said, apparently referring to the arresting officer, that he was asked whether he was on parole or probation before the man tried to pull him out of his vehicle Thursday night.

Police in Dublin, east of Oakland, said Hammer was in a vehicle with expired registration and he was not the registered owner.

"After asking Hammer who the registered owner was he became very argumentative and refused to answer the officer's questions," police spokesman Herb Walters wrote Saturday evening in an e-mail to CNN.

(Reuters) - Otis "Damon" Harris, a former member of The Temptations who sang on the group's 1972 hit "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone," has died at the age 62, the Baltimore Sun reported on Friday.

Harris, a native of Baltimore, auditioned to join the Temptations in 1971 at the age of 21 after the departure of Eddie Kendricks, one of the original lead singers of the group.

Harris died at the Joseph Richey Hospice on Monday after fighting prostate cancer for 14 years, according to the Sun.

As a teenager, Harris grew up admiring the Temptations, one of the top male singing groups of the 1960s and early 1970s, and formed a band with three high school friends named the Young Tempts that sang Temptations cover songs.

Harris sang with the Temptations until 1975, helping the group win three Grammy awards and lending his voice to hits including "Take a Look Around" and "Masterpiece."
