The group also recently addressed controversy surrounding the them after they revealed that they partook in the smoking of some of Tupac's ashes following the icons death.
Pac's mother Afeni Shakur came forward after their revelation saying that she never smoked or authorized the smoking of her son's ashes.
In an exclusive interview with HipHopDX, Outlawz member Noble clarified,
“We never said she was with us. Afeni Shakur had no knowledge of what we did. She wasn't present when we did it. She didn't approve of it. She had no knowledge of it period. That was the media taking what we said and basically putting words in our mouth.…That's his mother, we wouldn't have brought that to her and asked her to agree with it or none of that. That's stupid for people to even think she would've been there and had something to do with that.”
EDI added, “If you can't really respect our intentions, and the honor we was paying to our brother and our family member, then leave it alone and don't comment on it…This is the last time any of us gonna be talking about this subject, because when you bring Shyte up that people don't really understand, they take it and run with it and try to twist it and put they own spin on it [and] turn something positive and something that was special to us into some negative Shyte.”
