E.D.I. Mean Speaks On Why They Smoked 2Pac's Ashes

The Outlawz notoriously smoked what they thought were the ashes of their fallen bro 2Pac after the legend died.

While it's assumed that's because 2Pac asked them to in the track "Black Jesus", in which he raps "We die clutchin' glasses, filled with liquor bombastic/Cremated, last wish is n*ggas smoke my ashes," according to Outlawz spitter E.D.I. Mean that's not the whole story.

He told DJ Vlad that there was a lot more behind the decision to smoke Pac than a couple of bars.

"That was a conversation we had prior to doing that song," he said. "The song was just a song and he had that line in there because that's what he chose to talk about in the song. But it wasn't like we had that conversation, now we gon' do a song about it. The conversation was a real conversation. He was giving us some history on where it came from, what he learned about it, why he thought was something interesting. 'Wouldn't that be some shit if one of us died, just so we always a part of each other we did that? Wouldn't that be something?' Sh*t you talk about when you young and you high ... It something the Native American's did.  He had some Native American friends he went to school with that told him about it."

E.D.I Mean also clarified that they were never sure what they smoked was actually Tupac. Perhaps that because Pac's family pushed back 2011 when the Outlawz first told the tale of their unusual smoke session.

"[Afeni Shakur] would never participate in smoking her son," a family spokesperson said at the time . "[The Outlawz] would have had to sneak the remains past the family member in charge of keeping an eye on the ashes at the memorial."
