Rapper Hussein Fatal died this past weekend at the age of 38. The performer was killed in a car accident on Saturday, July 11.
Fatal's passing was confirmed in the late hours of Saturday evening by the members of his hip-hop group, The Outlawz. The remaining musicians in the group, which was founded by the late Tupac Shakur in 1995, tweeted a photo of Fatal and Shakur from The Outlawz' official Twitter account.
"Rest in Paradise our brother Hussein Fatal he passed away in a car accident," reads the tweet, which accompanies the throwback photo of the two deceased rappers. "Pray for his family & kids at this time!"
The group, which now features a lineup of E.D.I. Mean and Young Noble, went on to share a link to a fundraising page supporting Fatal's family as his funeral is planned.
