Hussein Fatal, one of the founding members of the Outlawz, died in a car crash on Saturday. Details of incident have not been revealed.
The New Jersey-born rapper is known for being a remaining member of the Outlawz, a group founded by Tupac Shakur.
Fatal, 38, appeared on early ‘Pac albums like All Eyez on Me and Me Against The World. He would go on to make several more albums with the Outlawz and built some excitement of their return with the Killuminati mixtape series. The last LP they made as a group was Perfect Timing, which released on the anniversary of 2Pac’s death on Sept. 13, in 2011.
He, along with fellow member Napoleon (real name Mutah Beale), coverted to Islam during their early days with ‘Pac. Napoleon confirmed Fatal’s death on Facebook.
