The mothers of late rap rivals Notorious BIG and Tupac Shakur are bringing their feuding sons together from beyond the grave - by collaborating on a new track for a hits compilation.

BIG's mother VOLETTA WALLACE reveals she has reached out to Shakur's mum AFENI to ask for samples she can use on a new track she hopes to get remixed for a best of package she aims to release next year (06).

Wallace regrets her son and Shakur weren't closer when they were alive, because she's convinced they would have been friends.

She says, "They were musicians; they were artists; they were poets; they were family people. They had a lot in common."
