Afeni Shakur, mother of hip hop legend and icon Tupac, died at the age of 69.
Sheriffs from Marin County in Sausalito, California went to her house Monday night, possibly suffering a heart attack. They took her to a hospital just before she passed away at 10:30 p.m.
“At this point there is nothing to indicate to us that there was any foul play, nothing suspicious about this other than this being sadly a natural event that has occurred,” Marin County Sheriff’s Lt. Doug Pittman said Tuesday according to the New York Daily News. “Attempts were made to try to remedy those problems at home, but when they got more severe, it was at that time the family friend called 911 and asked for medical help.”
It’s a shame to see a mother pass away that gave birth to a living legend, who continues to have his songs listened to from fans. There is a movie set to come out in November this year about Tupac’s life. Expect to see the mother in the movie as fans and others will see how much of an impact she had on Tupac.
