Originally hand selected by 2Pac; EDI, Young Noble, Kastro, Hussein Fatal, Big Syke and Kadafi, The Outlawz are considered legends in the streets. While the group has experienced many ups and downs, failure for them has never been an option. The Outlawz have held it down for over a decade and have become leaders among their peers, social activists, dedicated fathers, and businessmen – yet through it all, the Lawz have remained family and kept it G for their adoring fans all over the world.
