Tupac’s Father Billy Garland Displeased With Hulu’s ‘Dear Mama’ Docuseries

Tupac’s biological father has spoken out about his disdain for the Allen Hughes directed ‘Dear Mama: The Saga of Afeni & Tupac Shakur’ docuseries.

In a sit-down interview, Billy Garland revealed that he initially denied wanting to sit down to speak with Allen Hughes in an interview about 2Pac, but was persuaded by him, even though he didn’t know the actual footage would be used for ‘Dear Mama.’

We did an interview for about two hours,

Garland said.

After I saw the interview in the documentary, I was slightly disappointed, let’s just say that. I didn’t like it. It was more about something else, than about 2Pac, if you know what I’m saying. If I knew it was about ‘Dear Mama,’ I might’ve still did it, but I probably wouldn’t have. Not for nothing.

Billy Garland then defended 2Pac against Allen Hughes calling him a

delusional mythmaker

prior to the documentary being made. Garland also said 2Pac wasn’t “bi-polar,” but rather he was reacting because

people were betraying him

throughout the timeline of his success in music.


Did you watch the docuseries and if so, what were your thoughts on it?
