Mini Bio (1)

Yafeu Akiyele Fula was born October 9, 1977 in Montclair, New Jersey to Yaasmyn Fula. His father Sekou Odinga is a political prisoner currently incarcerated. Yafeu's mother and father were both respected members of the Black Panther Party along with Tupac Shakur's mother Afeni Shakur. Yafeu's family along with Tupac's family formed a strong bond together back in the days of the Panther 21 in New York. Kadafi and Tupac were inseperable, both growing up together living in the same households at times. Tupac served as Kadafi father figure and mentor. Always schooling him on the ways of the world, along with his mother. When Tupac was incarcerated in 1995 on the sexual assault charges, Kadafi would visit Tupac daily during visits, and it was there in one of those visits that Tupac and Kadafi came up with the rap group "Tha Outlawz". Kadafi was known as a local rebel by many in his community, he always spoke his mind and challenged the local authorities. Tupac kicked Kadafi out of Tha Outlawz briefly because of Kadafi defying him, amongst other things.

When Tupac was released in late '95, Kadafi went with him to DeathRow Records, and it was there in which Kadafi guest starred on Tupac's biggest album titled "All Eyez On Me", kadafi was featured on 3 songs. But sadly on September 7, 1996 Tupac was shot in a drive by shooting on the Las Vegas Strip, he clung on to life for six days. Kadafi was in the car directly behind Shakur, and saw the white cadillac pull up alongside Shakur and open fire. Kadafi was believed to have said that he could identify one of the shooters.

On September 13, 1996, like one of his prophetic rap songs, Tupac Shakur took his last breath and died. Kadafi was stunned by his loss, and immediately returned to New Jersey, before any detectives could interview him.

On the night of October 9th, 1996, Kadafi was visiting his girlfriend in an East Orange, New Jersey housing project and it was there in which he was shot and killed. He was shot between the eyes at point blank range, in a dispute over money. He was killed by the cousin of former Outlaw Member Napolean. Kadafi was found slumped in a stairwell of the housing project, at 3:30 am with a bullet wound to his head. He was found with his bulletproof vest still on him. Yafeu Fula was only 19 years old when he died, he left behind a loving mother, and 2 beautiful daughters.
