Yafeu Akiyele Fula (9 October 1977 - 10 November 1996), better known by his stage name Yaki Kadafi, was an American rapper from Irvington, New Jersey. Kadafi's parents, Yaasmyn Fula and Sekou Odinga, were both members of the Black Panther Party. The mothers of Kadafi and Tupac Shakur shared a close friendship, which made Yaki Kadafi and Tupac remain close friends from early in their childhoods until their untimely deaths in 1996. Kadafi was credited for co-writing some significant songs by Shakur, and he was also a member of Shakur's group Outlawz.

On 10 November 1996, Fula was fatally shot in an apartment building in New Jersey.
