The sheriff's office is currently leading an investigation to determine the exact cause of Davis' death.

The rapper's mother was big on keeping her famous son's legacy alive. In 1997, she opened the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation and the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Stone Mountain, Georgia. The center, which recently closed, was a place where young people of Atlanta could learn about the arts.
