Tupac’s Posse Smoked His Ashes

The Outlawz confirm they puffed on the star’s remains at a memorial event…

Tupac Shakur’s rap group The Outlawz smoked the star’s ashes after his death.

Members of the group, which was founded by the late rapper before his death in 1996, have spoken about the decision to inhale their mentor at a memorial gathering.

In a new interview with Vlad TV, rapper Young Noble recalled how Tupac’s mother was nearby at the time. “Yes, it's definitely true... Had a little memorial for him with his mum and his family. We had hit the beach, threw [in] a lot of s**t he liked at the beach. Some weed, some chicken wings, he loved orange soda... Pac loved that kind of s**t, so we were giving him our own farewell.”

EDI Mean said he came up with the idea to smoke the ashes due to the lyrics in Tupac’s track Black Jesus. “I came up with that shit. If you listen to Black Jesus, he said, 'Last wishes, n****s smoke my ashes'. That was a request that he had.”

He admitted they had no idea if the Dear Mama hitmaker’s request was legitimate or not. “Now, how serious he was about it? We took it serious.”

Tupac was shot dead in Las Vegas in 1996. A biopic about his life is in the works.
