Tupac Shakur's Mom, Afeni Shakur, Passed Away, 69



Afeni Shakur speaks onstage at Tupac's 40th Birthday Celebration at the Atlanta Symphony Hall on June 16, 2011.

Afeni Shakur Davis, mother of late rap legend Tupac Shakur, has died at the age of 69.
Marin County deputies responded to Shakur’s home in Sausalito, Calif., Monday night after she suffered a possible cardiac arrest, the sheriff’s office said Tuesday morning. She was taken to a local hospital and died just before 10:30 p.m.
Born Alice Faye Williams, Shakur changed her name when she moved to New York City and joined the Black Panther movement. She and other party members were arrested in 1969 and charged with conspiracy to bomb multiple, busy city landmarks.  In May 1971, she was acquitted on all charges — and she gave birth to Tupac just one month later.
After her son’s 1996 shooting death, Shakur took over the late rapper’s estate, which reportedly earns about $900,000 each year.
Earlier this year, she filed for divorce from her husband of 12 years, Gust Davis, and was allegedly in a legal battle over the fortune, TMZ reported. Davis demanded half of the monthly $20,000 Shakur took home every month.
The Marin County Sheriff's Coroner's Office will lead the investigation to determine the cause and manner of Shakur's death.
Prayers going out to the family
