Big Wos & Nando Vila are back and are joined by writer Tashan Reed. Reed recently did a piece for Jacobin Magazine on Tupac's mother Afeni Shakur. He joins the show to shed some light on an amazing story not many know about.

"When she died, Afeni Shakur was widely known as the mother of a charismatic superstar: Tupac Shakur. Before then, though, she defended herself while pregnant with Tupac in the Panther 21 trial. My piece on the fight that made Afeni, but didn't break her" - Tashan Reed
