Shakur Family:

NO ONE Had Permission

to Smoke Tupac!

Tupac Shakur
's mother would "never participate in smoking her son" ... a family spokesperson tells TMZ.

As TMZ previously reported, members of the The Outlawz -- Tupac's former rap group -- released a video for VladTV.com in which they claim they rolled up Pac's ashes with weed and smoked him up at a family memorial event. The rappers claim Pac's mother was present at the time.

But the family spokesperson tells us ... no one in the Shakur family EVER signed off on the Pac puff 'n pass ... especially his mother, Afeni.

The family rep tells us ... the Shakurs simply don't know if there's any truth to the claims made by the Outlawz -- but if they DID smoke Tupac, they "would have had to sneak the remains past the family member in charge of keeping an eye on the ashes at the memorial."

The rep tells us ... no one in the family would ever approve of the act -- but they currently don't plan on pursuing any action against The Outlawz.

Doesn't make any sense. They are not actually ashes. The remains are grounded up bone and teeth. You can't smoke that!

Obviously know one at TMZ or on here has ever seen cremated ashes, they are no like something found in an ashe tray, but rather nothing but bone fragments YOU CAN"T SMOKE THEM. Keith Richards joked about this once before and is still laughing his ass off that anyone even believes this is possible

You'd be better off smoking Biggie's ashes. You'd get a lot more for your money.

This story is absolutely true. The Outlawz confirmed it on vlad and they told the same story about 3-4 years ago. There may be a lot of racists on this board who think they're funny with the comments, but that won't change the fact that it happened. TMZ has always been a stupid site, organization and company. It shocks me that some of you are surprised on the things they report. TMZ has never been respectable and some of you are surprised they reported on this story?

That said, 2Pac always talked about his friends smoking his ashes if he died. I'd bet he was 100% serious about wanting them to do it. Furthermore, I can't believe Afeni would be mad about this. Some of the Outlawz are 2Pac's actual family members. If that was 2Pac's desire, I can't believe she'd be throwing a fit like this. But, then again, TMZ does have a tendency to dramatize everything they report on, so it's probably not as big of a deal as they're making it out to be.

Anyway, the haters can keep on hating. I feel sorry for you if you have nothing better to do in life then come on a website and criticize a dead rapper.
