Tupac’s stepfather was diagnosed with a rare blood cancer

In prison, Mutulu Shakur, the stepfather of Tupac who has served more than 35 years in prison, received a diagnosis of a rare and terminal blood malignancy.

In light of the fact that Mutulu Shakur, Tupac Shakur’s stepfather, is suffering an uncommon and, according to physicians, incurable kind of blood cancer, activists are pushing for his release from prison. Shakur has spent more than 35 years behind bars. He has stage 3 multiple myeloma, a blood malignancy that can kill bones and kidneys, and is currently 71 years old.

Doctors have given the 71-year-old up to six months to live, and activists are fighting to get the American activist and former member of the Black Liberation Army out from behind bars so he can say goodbye to his family.

“His health situation is extremely dire right now,” Shakur’s attorney Brad Thomson told NBC News. “He’s very much on an end-of-life trajectory. We’re looking at a matter of months at the most but, realistically, it could be a matter of days or weeks.”

He continued: “At this point, the issue is getting him released so he can say goodbye to his loved ones, his family, his children, and grandchildren. To be surrounded by loved ones, so he can die in dignity, peace, and comfort outside of prison.”

The crimes for which Tupac’s stepfather was convicted

Tupac’s stepfather As a result of his 1988 conviction for conspiring to break the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, Shakur is currently serving a 60-year term (RICO). Charges include armed bank robbery, bank robbery, and bank robbery murder. Shakur was found guilty of leading a squad of revolutionaries in many armed robberies that took place in Connecticut and New York.

Three persons were killed in one of the robberies. Additionally, he was found guilty of assisting Assata Shakur, real name JoAnne Chesimard, in escaping from a New Jersey jail in 1979. Myeloma was discovered to be Shakur’s disease in 2019, according to his lawyer Brad Thomson.

In 2020, his legal team requested his “compassionate release.” Shakur’s request was turned down by U.S. District Judge Charles Haight Jr. that same year due to the severity of his offenses, according to Haight. Haight added that his health has not yet declined to the point where he should be released. According to Thomson, Shakur only has six months to live because his cancer treatment is no longer effective.
Supporters of Shakur have always argued that his actions were political rather than illicit. Shakur’s imprisonment, according to Jomo Muhammad, a Malcom X Grassroots Movement leader working to free him, is connected to his involvement with revolutionary Black organisations in the 1960s.

“Fifty years later, the United States government continues to hold a grudge,” Muhammad said. “You can make the argument that he is, in fact, a political prisoner.”
