WATCH: FX Releases Teaser Trailer for “Dear Mama” Docuseries About Tupac and His Mother Afeni Shakur

In celebration of Mother’s Day, FX released a brief teaser for the upcoming docuseries Dear Mama, centered around the late 2Pac and his mother, Afeni Shakur.

The teaser for the five-part docuseries, named after 2Pac’s 1995 hit song, doesn’t show much aside from a voiceover from Afeni describing a lesson she taught her son when he was younger. “It was my responsibility to teach 2Pac how to survive his reality,” Shakur says in the clip. “So, 2Pac do something wrong, take your little sorry self in that corner, get the New York Times and let’s have a debate about it. Not a discussion, a debate. Let me hear what your idea is, stand up, defend it.”

FX describes Dear Mama in its press release as being “told through the eyes of the people who knew them best.” It’s directed by Allen Hughes, whose previous directorial credits include the HBO docuseries The Defiant Ones, about the partnership between Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, as well as films like The Book of Eli and Menace II Society, which were directed with his brother Albert.
