Shakur Siblings Ranked Oldest to Youngest

Tupac Shakur’s 6 Siblings Ranked Oldest to Youngest

Tupac Shakur has left an indelible imprint on American and world culture. Tupac was recognized as a transcendent figure and an influential leader in the Black Panther and Civil Rights movement.

His lyrical content spoke to issues of race, violence, police brutality, and unjust laws set in place to subjugate and mistreat the lower class. These are all issues as relevant in 2022 as they were when Tupac took to the recording studio and streets to protest the injustices.

His interest in political activism came from his mother, Afeni Shakur, a prominent political activist and member of the Black Panther Party. For any fans of Tupac Shakur, it’s clear that her influence informed the messages in his music, interviews, and any creative endeavor he was involved in.

To learn more about the life and legacy of the man regarded as the greatest, there’s no better place to start than at the source – his family. So join us while we look at the Shakur siblings from oldest to youngest.

Mopreme Shakur, also known as Wycked, is the 54-year-old step-brother of legendary rapper Tupac Shakur. He’s also a member of the hip-hop group Thug Life (founded by Mopreme and Tupac) and Outlawz.

However, he was forced to drop out from the group after a disagreement with the infamous record label – Death Row Records. We can only assume it had something to do with shady contracts, which Death Row Records was routinely known.

Mopreme made his first notable musical introduction on Tony Toni Toné’s single “Feels Good.” Three years later, he collaborated with Tupac on “Papa’z Song.” As a member of Thug Life, Mopreme played an essential creative role as a songwriter alongside Tupac for the better part of the album Thug Life: Volume 1.

That only album went gold, and the group decided to quit while they were ahead.

The group consisted of Mopreme, Tupac, Big Syke, Macadoshis, and Rated R.

Did You Know?

Mopreme offered his knowledge of the streets, his father, and the life of a gangster as an official consultant for a single episode on the BET series American Gangster.

Tupac Shakur was a rapper, actor, and activist, often referred to as the greatest rapper there ever was. Known as much for his political involvement as his musical career, he’s solidified himself in pop culture immortality with his timeless catalog, introspective lyrics, and near-prophetic visions for the political climate of the future.

Shakur was born in New York and raised by parents who were active members of the Black Panther Party. Primarily raised by his mom, Afeni, the two relocated to San Francisco in 1988. Tupac credited the Bay Area as an inspiration in developing his unique sound.

On top of the several accolades he’s won for his music, he also found his niche as an actor, starring in films like Juice, Above the Rim, Poetic Justice, Bullet, and Gang Related. Poetic Justice is considered his best role, starring as the love interest of pop sensation Janet Jackson.

Tupac suffered his fair share of physical violence thanks to gang affiliations and as part of the inevitable result of the rivalry between east and west coast music. Before his fatal encounter with still-unidentified gunmen on September 7, 1996, in Las Vegas, he was shot five times in the lobby of a New York recording studio.

His assassination is clouded in conspiracy, mystery, and unanswered questions. His death sent shockwaves beyond the music industry, and several stars and public figures mourned the loss of a transcendent figure in our culture.

Did You Know?

Tupac’s life was chronicled in the 2017 biopic All Eyez on Me – the name of his fourth album, which debuted on February 13, 1996. That album made history as rap’s first double album, contractually fulfilling two of the three albums he was supposed to release for Death Row Records. The biopic starred Demetrius Shipp Jr., who has strikingly similar features to the late rapper.

Tupac had no children in his young life. He is survived by his six siblings, who live to keep his memory and legacy alive, carrying forward his message of equality, love, and the fight against social injustice.

3. Sekyiwa “Set” Shakur (1975 – Present)

Sekyiwa Shakur has carried the torch of her late brother and continued the fight against corruption and racism in America. She and Tupac share the same mother — Afeni Shakur. They were close in childhood, growing up together in Harlem, New York. Aside from her appearances in various protests, she stays out of the public eye.

Sekyiwa runs the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation based in California. The foundation offers services for mental health, creative arts, and families who have been affected by incarceration.

Did You Know?

Sekyiwa made headlines when she was spotted at the protest for George Floyd in 2020, who was another man killed by excessive police force. She spoke to thousands who gathered to honor his memory and use his untimely passing as a vehicle to voice their discontent with the complacency of our political figures in allowing these incidents to continue.

“We are worthy,” she remarked in her speech. “We are not disposable. Each one of you is just as precious as George Floyd, as Tupac Shakur.” Distraught from the tragedy, she collapsed into the arms of her friends before being taken away.
