Former member of the Outlawz, Mutah ‘Napoleon’ Beale, appeared on CNN’s Quest World of Wonder where he spoke about 2Pac and the Outlawz.

Napoleon who retired from the music industry over a decade ago, has been living in Saudi Arabia since 2002. Prior to converting to a Muslim, Napoleon was living a dangerous and unhealthy lifestyle. Although he enjoyed success with his comrades the Outlawz and Tupac, Napoleon’s life was filled with uncertainty.

“I was signed to Death Row records. They had Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Tupac, Outlawz, Dogg Pound. So we was in the mist of this and the people that were involved inside the studios were gang members. It was a very violent situation,” Napoleon said. “I got tired of the way I was living my life. After Tupac died, I wanted something that was gonna bring me peace. Peaceful life.”

Back in 2021, Napoleon was able to share his incredible story with the help of author Sulaiman Jenkins, in the autobiography “Life Is Raw.” This biographical memoir takes an in-depth look into the life of Mutah Beale, formerly known as Napoleon of the legendary Outlawz rap group who was affiliated with the late Tupac Shakur. It examines his life starting from birth after the murder of his parents and growing up in an unforgiving environment where he encountered insurmountable obstacles at a young age. Becoming intimately acquainted with Tupac Shakur, Napoleon rises to stardom as a member of rap’s most recognizable groups only to suffer tragedy after tragedy.

Highlighted in the CNN special is Napoleon’s MW Cafe located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. “The coffee culture in Saudi is one of the fastest sectors of specialty coffee,” Napoleon tells Richard Quest.
