In "Hip hop, woah!" news, members of Tupac Shakur's crew, The Outlawz, smoked his cremated ashes at a wake.
Like Keith Richards’s snorting of his father’s ashes, Young Noble and EDI Mean of west coast rap crew The Outlawz confirmed that they did indeed roll up the their founder member Tupac Shakur and smoke him at a memorial party. When asked about the long-rumoured incident, Young Noble told Vlad TV:
“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 shit he liked at the beach. Some weed, some chicken wings, he loved orange soda… Pac loved that kind of shit, so we were giving him our own farewell.”
EDI Mean chipped in that he came up with the plan to smoke Pac:
“I came up with that shit. If you listen to ‘Black Jesus’, he said, ‘Last wishes, niggas smoke my ashes’. That was a request that he had. Now, how serious he was about it? We took it serious.”
