FX has revealed the full-length trailer for Dear Mama. The docuseries Dear Mama: The Saga of Afeni & Tupac Shakur stars the late Tupac and his late mother, Afeni Shakur.
The new series will shed insight into Tupac’s relationship with his activist mother. The show airs on April 21 on FX, and the next day on Hulu.
The trailer features a 17-year-old Tupac Shakur detailing his Afeni lessons. He particularly pointed out her teachings on the importance of being vocal on issues surrounding society.
“My mother taught me to analyze society, and not be quiet, if there’s something in my mind, speak it,” Pac said. “My mother was a Black Panther and was really involved in the movement.”
Further in the trailer, the “California Love” rapper touched on how he and his mother never really got to spend time together.
“We never spent time together,” he said. “She was always speaking and going to colleges and everything. Then after that was over it was more time spent with me and we both were like ‘your my mother and she was like your my son, and what do we do?’” Pac added.

How Fila Paid Homage To Tupac
Even in death, Tupac inspires a whole new collection of apparel, footwear, and accessories with Fila. At the center of the footwear brand’s collection are the Grant Hill 2 Low sneakers to pay homage to the rapper’s life and legacy.
The Fila brand apparently gravitated toward Tupac, as he is wearing the Grant shoes in the original artwork of his All Eyes On Me album.
