Outlawz was a hip-hop group formed by Tupac Shakur in the mid-1990s. It was slated to be the biggest supergroup in rap history, but the group’s future was unsure when the trio’s leaders, Tupac and Fatal, were killed and Napoleon and Young Noble left. The group’s success was in part due to independent releases and their appearances on albums that sold 40 million copies. Despite these setbacks, the group remained active and pumped out a series of hit independent projects, releasing several million-selling albums. It was at this time that Big Syke and Mopreme broke up with Death Row, which led to the group’s single “Karma.”
Young Noble joined the Outlawz in 1999. He was introduced to Tupac by Kadafi and Hussein in Los Angeles. Young Noble joined the group after Tupac’s death and appeared on many of his last recordings, including The Don Killuminati and the 7 Day Theory. Tupac never gave him an alias but kept his name as Young Noble. The group’s final albums were released between 2016 and 2017.
Hussein Fatal, a member of the Tupac Shakur-led rap group The Outlawz, has died in a car crash. His real name was Bruce Washington Jr., but the details of the accident have not been made public. The Outlawz have confirmed his death via social media. The group posted on Facebook that he died on July 11.
The Outlawz was an eclectic group of hip-hop artists. Members included Pac, Wyclef Jean, Young Noble, and the late Jermaine Culp. Pac was the most famous rapper in the group, and it was the latter’s success that made him a household name. The Outlawz’s rap songs helped break down barriers in hip-hop. They merged hip-hop and R&B into one cohesive sound.
Young Noble is the only member of the Outlawz who is not a member of Tupac Shakur’s family. He was added to the group before his death in 1996, and his mother recently released a book on his life. Malcolm Greenidge (aka E.D.I. Mean or EDIDON), is also a member of the Outlawz. He was introduced to Tupac Shakur when he was in third grade.
Big Syke’s name came from his childhood nickname, “Little Psycho.” The rapper was born and raised in Inglewood, California and was part of the legendary rap group Outlawz. Big Syke was an integral member of the Outlawz and was a friend to Tupac. The group was formed by Tupac Shakur and two other rappers. The group’s name became synonymous with the Outlawz and the Thug Life.
