Tupac’s Family Opens Pop-Up Restaurant In L.A In Honor Of Late Rapper 

Tupac Shakur’s family is keeping his legacy alive!

Late rap legend Tupac Shakur’s family opened a pop-up restaurant named “Powamekka Cafe,” which is set to be in business from June 16 until June 30 at 800 W. Olympic Boulevard in Los Angeles. The restaurant is an establishment of Sacramento’s Fixins Soul Kitchen. The chefs are serving fried chicken wings, gumbo, meatloaf, as well as other lunch and dinner options.

In September 1996, Tupac Shakur was shot four times in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. He passed away six days later at the age of 25. Before he died, he diligently wrote on a page of yellow-lined paper that he had dreams of owning a restaurant called the “Powamekka Cafe.” Tupac’s family shared a picture of the yellow note on his Instagram, indicating he wanted the place to have an aura for “divaz” and “playaz”:

Tupac also wrote that he wanted “Powamekka Cafe” to be “a passionate paradise 4 people with power 2 play and parlay.” This would be “the perfect hideout 4 those who wish 2 escape the world’z cold reality.”

The rapper also wrote:

“Come dine on authentic Italian food prepared by a reknown sic chef or the finest in down home southern & creole food from generationz of recipes & traditionz if u want more than we make the best sandwiches on the planet.”

“Powamekka Cafe” is now a reality in places like Fresno, California and New York City, which is an acknowledgment of Tupac’s legacy.
