Tupac Shakur’s godmother is on the FBI’s Most-Wanted Terrorists list. There is a 2 Million dollar reward for her capture Joanne Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur, is a radical who was convicted of a trooper in the 1970s in order to escape jail.
With the assistance of accomplices from the Black Liberation Army and Weather Underground, the left-wing radical group, Shakur escaped prison in 1979 and fled to Cuba and, now, New Jersey police are hoping that the new relationship status with Cuba will help them catch her.
According to the magazine Rolling Stone, Assata was a step-aunt and godmother to late hip-hop icon Tupac Shakur, the stepson of her brother Mutulu Shakur.
In 1973 she was convicted for shooting Trooper Werner Foerster where her gun was found near the victim, forcing the FBI to place her on the list of most wanted terroristst, the first woman to be added.
With both Cuba and the United States now on speaking terms, authorities in New Jersey are serious about capturing and extraditing Shakur, offering a $2 million reward for her capture.
