2pac’s ‘dear Mama’ Fx Series Earns Perfect Rating on ‘rotten Tomatoes’

2Pac’s new Dear Mama: The Saga of Afeni & Tupac Shakur docu-series has received a perfect 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and comes after the FX series already shattered TV records.

The new perfect score was unveiled on Friday (May 5), with critics such as TIME, Variety, and The Hollywood Reporterpraising the sensitive approach to 2Pac’s legacy taken by the director Allen Hughes.

“One of the most thorough, sensitive portraits I’ve seen of an artist who has by now been eulogized for longer than he was alive,” wrote TIME. “And of the remarkable woman who created him.


The five-part docu-series focuses on the mother-son relationship between Afeni Shakur – a revolutionary and member of the Black Panther Party – and 2Pac Shakur. The series premiered on April 21, and in turn, was the most-watched premiere episode for an unscripted series in FX’s 28-year history.


“It’s only fitting that Allen Hughes definitive piece on Tupac and Afeni Shakur delivered a record performance for us and it speaks to Tupac’s enduring legacy,” Nick Grad, president of FX Entertainment, said in a statement. “Allen’s examination of Tupac viewed through the prism of his mother Afeni is a fascinating take that really gets beneath the education and experience that shaped his life and inspired him to become one of the greatest artists ever.”


Hughes is no stranger to crafting rap-oriented films. He’s previously directed legendary pictures such as 1993’s Menace To Society, and 1995’s Dead Presidents, as well as the four-part Netflix docuseries The Defiant Ones focused on Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine.


2Pac’s former manager, Leila Steinburg, also recently opened up about the new docuseries, and told SiriusXM’s The Last Mile Radio that Dear Mama is fo “‘Pac’s fans and loved ones, and gives an honest picture of the prolific rapper’s life.”

“Well, I wanted to say something about Dear Mama. Last year, [director] Alan Hughes reached out to me and said he was doing the five-part series on FX that’s coming out…April 21st…. Part of [Alan] wanting to really do this piece was about healing, was about honesty, was about all of us looking at what happened. And, so I’m just saying this to say, he’s done an incredible piece,” she said.


She continued: “I have to sit here as someone who was close to 2Pac until his death, who was present many times when I no longer worked with him in a managerial capacity. I was at lots of video shoots that he did. I was in the studio at Can-Am when he was with Suge [Knight]. And this industry is so destructive, that if I point the finger, I would say that executives and this industry had more to do with his collapse than anything.”

2Pac was fatally shot on September 7, 1996 in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was only 25 years old.
