On Friday 13 September 17 years ago 2Pac “Makaveli” Shakur dead

Received mortal gunshot wounds two months before release of “Killuminati” album.


The Singer/Songwriter of “Dear Mama” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mb1ZvUDvLDY), while in the critical care unit, on the afternoon of Friday, September 13, 1996, died of internal bleeding; doctors attempted to revive him but could not stop the hemorrhaging. His mother, Afeni, made the decision to tell the doctors to stop. He was pronounced dead at 4:03 pm (PDT). The official cause of death was noted as respiratory failure and cardiopulmonary arrest in connection with multiple gunshot wounds. Shakur’s body was cremated the next day and some of his ashes were later mixed with marijuana and smoked by members of the Outlawz. His fifth album, The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory was released two months later.
