This year has been off to a really rough start for many. We have been losing people left and right. It is with great sadness that we have to report the passing of Afeni Shakur, the mother of deceased rapper Tupac.

Reports are being made that Afeni passed away late last night (5/2/16) from an apparent heart attack.

TMZ is reporting that “the Marin County Sheriff’s Department says it responded to Afeni’s Sausalito, CA home Monday around 9:43 PM for a report of a cardiac arrest. She was transported to a hospital … where she was pronounced dead at 10:28 PM.”

Afeni Shakur was a black activist, former Black Panther and philanthropist. With the passing of her son, Tupac, in 1996, she ran the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation.

An investigation on the death of Afeni will take place to determine exactly how she passed.   The Tupac biopic “All Eyez on Me,” is set to be released some time in September this year.

We send big condolences to the family and friends of Afeni. May she rest well.
