Former Thug Life rapper and close friend of West Coast great Tupac Shakur, Big Skye, has died at the age of 48.



Police found Skye at his home in Hawthorne, California when they responded to a call late Monday night. The cause of death was determined to be natural causes as he had a history of suffering from heart problems.



Big Skye started his career with the hip-hop group Evil Mind Gangstas with fellow members Domino and Mental Illness (RIP).



Due to the relationship Mental Illness and Tupac had, Big Skye was able to form a relationship with Pac before eventually joining Tupac’s Thug Life Outlawz. Big Skye is best known for featuring on four tracks on Tupac’s, All Eyez On Me album, most notably on the lead single Picture Me Rolling.


RIP Big Skye.
