The mother of the late American legend rapper Tupac, Afeni Shakur is reportedly dead. She died on Monday in Northern California at the aged of 69.
The Marin County Sheriff’s Department confirmed her death via Twitter, adding that deputies responded to a possible cardiac arrest situation at her Sausalito home Monday and transported her to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.
She was born as Alice Faye Williams in 1947, a member of the Black Panthers and served 11 months in prison, during which time she was pregnant with Tupac. She served as her own Defence Attorney and was acquitted of multiple counts. She was released from prison shortly before her son’s birth in June 1971.
