Tupac Shakur's mother, Afeni Shakur Davis, died on Monday night at age 69, nearly 20 years after the death of her son.
According to the Marin County Sheriff’s Office, police responded to a report of a possible cardiac arrest at her home in Sausalto, California at 9:34 p.m. Davis was then transported to a hospital, where she died at 10:28 p.m.
The sheriff’s office is currently leading an investigation to determine the exact cause of Davis’ death.
The rapper’s mother was big on keeping her famous son’s legacy alive.
In 1997, she opened the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation and the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Stone Mountain, Georgia.
The center, which recently closed, was a place where young people of Atlanta could learn about the arts.
Tupac died at 25 in September 1996, after a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The legendary rapper’s death is still unsolved.
