Tupac Shakur's rap group the Outlawz have confirmed the long-standing rumors that they smoked the late MC's ashes at a memorial service in Las Vegas in 1996. Young Noble and E.D.I. told Vlad TV, "We twisted some of that great granddaddy California kush and mixed the big homie with it" and smoked the ceremonial blunt.

"Yes, it's definitely true," Noble claims. "We ... had a little memorial for him with his mom and his family. We had hit the beach, threw [in] a lot of s--- he liked at the beach. Some weed, some chicken wings, he loved orange soda... Pac loved that kind of s---, so we were giving him our own farewell."

E.D.I. adds in that they were following 2Pac's last wish verbatim. "If you listen to Black Jesus, he said, 'Last wishes, n----s smoke my ashes.' That was a request that he had. Now, how serious he was about it? We took it serious."

2Pac formed the Outlawz, who were featured on his 'All Eyez on Me' album, shortly after his release from prison in 1995, the year before the legend was shot multiple times in Las Vegas and succumbed to the injuries days later. The crew's most recent revelation comes closely timed to the upcoming 15th anniversary of 2Pac's death. Even closer is the timing of the Outlawz' new album release date, which falls exactly on Sept. 13, the day of the West Coast rapper's passing.
