There have been big changes to the state of some of Tupac Shakur’s previously unreleased music.

A bundle of recordings that the hip hop icon made before his death have been returned to his estate as part of a settlement to a drawn-out legal struggle, according to TMZ.

Tupac’s estate had accused the Entertainment One company in a 2013 lawsuit of keeping a stranglehold on the rapper’s unheard master tracks while also holding onto royalties for some of the rapper’s music.

The “Changes” artist’s unreleased recordings will now be returned to his estate, while a six-figure payment will be made to cover the royalties.

It’s currently unclear what the future holds for those unreleased tracks, or if there is any plan to release them to the public.

Shakur’s mother Afeni had been at the forefront of her son’s estate, and the legal battle for his recordings continued on after her death in 2016.

Tupac died at the age of 25 in 1996 in an unsolved drive-by shooting.
