He also noted that he was never informed that the show was also about Tupac's mother Afeni. He said:

"After I saw the interview in the documentary, I was slightly disappointed… I didn’t like it, to be honest with you. I thought it was more about something else than about Tupac if you know what I’m saying."

Tupac's song Dear Mama praises present mothers and slams, absent fathers. Speaking about his son's 1995 hit, Billy Garland said he did not like the song at first because the lyrics tagged him as a coward and a dead man.

The American Songwriter reports that Garland said he later realised that his son had been lied to and didn't know him too well.

“At first, I was upset because I’m trying to see you. But then it hit me, for one, I ain’t dead and so you really didn’t know me. Because if you would have known me, you would have known that I wasn’t dead. So I knew there that someone had lied to him from that point. So later on when I found out that someone did lie to him, that song made perfectly good sense. I understood it totally.”
