Did Tupac Have Kids and is Jaycee Shakur Really His Daughter?

Tupac did not have a daughter, nor did he welcome any biological children before he was shot and killed in Las Vegas in 1996. 

Tupac was an American rapper and actor who successfully carved a niche for himself in the entertainment industry before his death on September 13, 1996. With his sudden death, there have been several rumors surrounding the fact that he has children, including a daughter known as Jaycee Shakur. The truth about whether Tupac has children or not has been revealed below.

Did Tupac Have Kids?

Tupac did not have any kids that are known to the public, nor has there been proof from a credible source that he became a father for a day prior to his death. The legendary rapper was previously married to Keisha Morris in 1995 while he was serving a prison sentence. The duo met in 1994 at the Capitol Club in New York and dated for some time before getting married. However, their marriage was short-lived, as it lasted just 13 months before they called it quits.

Meanwhile, their marriage welcomed no children, though Keisha mentioned that the rapper had plans to have babies. Keisha made it known that Tupac’s smoking habit made conception a herculean task. She further stated that he chose names for his children and stated that when he welcomed a girl, he would name her Star and a boy would be named Michelangelo, though the latter did not suit her taste.

Unfortunately, the rapper did not live to actualize his dream of becoming a father, as he was shot and killed five months after he called it quits with his wife. Though he moved on from his divorce and started dating Kidada Jones, cohabiting with her, they still did not welcome any children before his death. On the other hand, Keisha moved on and had two children later in life, but the identity of her children’s father has remained under wraps.

Is Jaycee Shakur Really Tupac’s Daughter?

As stated earlier, Tupac did not have any children with any woman before his death. Meanwhile, there is no evidence that he is Jaycee Shakur’s father, nor is he related to her in any way. However, the news about the TikTok Star being Tupac’s daughter began making waves on July 20, 2021, after she uploaded a video titled I Am Tupac’s Daughter on her social media page.

She went on to upload one of Tupac’s family pictures where they had a small gathering, showing his mother holding a baby girl who is assumed to be Jaycee Shakur. Jaycee also uploaded a picture of the rapper with a baby and tagged it “Father and Child,” but the public looked forward to more to affirm that she is really his daughter.

The story caused quite a buzz and made a greater part of the public start digging up facts to back up or debunk her claims. As much as the video gained her recognition, Jaycee was also met with both negative and positive remarks from the public. While some believed her, many saw her post as an avenue to garner many followers, which she eventually achieved as the video had numerous views. Some still remained skeptical about her claims, as she did not come up with strong evidence to prove them.

Meanwhile, various proofs to back up Jaycee Shakur’s claims started circulating, most especially from Busta Rhymes’s lyrics, which he sang after the death of Tupac. In the 1997 album, When Disaster Strikes by Busta Rhymes, he sang in his song, “Tupac: soldier, warrior, may Allah bless your family, your daughter, her mother, your mother (Afeni Shakur).” Jayce Shakur bears the last name Shakur, which is also the late rapper’s last name, and is also black, just like the rapper, but these are not enough to convince the public to believe her claims.

Another fact that has been a strong backup to the claim is the fact that nothing is known about Jaycee Shakur’s parents. This made many believe that her mother chose to remain off the radar so as to protect herself and her daughter from the public.

A Comparison Between Jaycee Shakur and Tupac’s Age

With the heated rumor about Tupac and Jayce, their age difference is taken into consideration. Tupac was born on June 16, 1971, while Jaycee Shakur was born between 1993 and 1996. At this time, the rapper was 22 years old and 25 years old respectively, and at the peak of his career. With his achievements and age at that time, the rapper had become old enough to father a child and might truly be Jaycee Shakur’s father. Until any other close person to Tupac, like his immediate family member, comes up to clear the doubt, the fact still remains that the rapper never fathered any children.

What To Know About Jaycee Shakur 

Jayce Shakur is the alleged daughter of the American rap legend Tupac. Though she is famed for her claims of being Tupac’s daughter, nothing is known about the exact month, date, or year that she was born. However, based on various reports, her year of birth falls between 1993 and 1996, which infers that she is between 28 and 31 years old.

The rapper’s alleged daughter is an American national who is of African-American ethnicity. Meanwhile, based on the fact that her relationship with Tupac Shakur has not been confirmed, he cannot be tagged as her father.
