Family Of Tupac Shakur Holds Private Service

Compiled From Wire Services

The family of Tupac Shakur had his remains cremated over the weekend and held their own private services for the slain rapper, who died six days after he was shot near the Las Vegas Strip.

“The family had private services Saturday and it was the wishes of the family that nothing be done. It’s done and over with. There will be nothing more. The family doesn’t want us to say anything else,” said a Davis Funeral Home spokeswoman.

Shakur, one of rap’s most successful and notorious singers, was shot Sept. 7 in Las Vegas.
