Since Keith Richards admitted to snorting his Dad’s ashes, then denied it, then finally admitted he had done it after all, members of Tupac Shakur’s crew Outlawz, the hip hop collective and group founded by dead gangsta rapper have admitted that they smoked his ashes.
Conducting an interview with Vlad TV, Young Noble and EDI Mean revealed that they had a toke on the dead star’s ashes while attending a memorial event for the star held on a beach.Tupac was gunned down in Las Vegas in 1996 in a drive by in an alleged feud with East Coast rapper Biggie Small, who he had supposedly been dissin’.
If you believe them, Tupac had informed his homies that he wanted his ashes be rolled up and smoked in the lyrics to his track ‘Black Jesus’. Asked if they really had inhaled the original gansta, Young Noble admitted: “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.”
According to EDI Mean, it was all his plan. “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.”
