Earlier in August, The Outlawz confirmed a rumor stating that they had smoked Tupac Shakur’s ashes. The confirmation has reached the Shakur family and according to TMZ, a family spokesperson says many within the family, including Afeni Shakur, do not approve of the act. 

Among other things, the spokesperson noted that Afeni Shakur would “never participate in smoking her son.” The Outlawz have claimed his mom was present during the smoke session. 

The spokesperson added that if the Outlawz in fact were able to smoke the ashes, they had to go through some obstacles in order to get some of those ashes. 

“[They] would have had to sneak the remains past the family member in charge of keeping an eye on the ashes at the memorial.”

While the family does not appear to condone the act, per statements made to TMZ by this spokesperson, the family also presently does not plan to pursue legal action against The Outlawz.
