Although he is no longer with us, the legacy of Tupac Shakur still alive. When he wasn’t making hit records, Shakur, who died in 1996, imagined owning a restaurant called Powamekka Cafewhich he meticulously detailed on a page of yellow lined paper in a notebook.
Now the family of the deceased rapper opened a temporary restaurant in The Angels with the same name and is ready to receive guests until June 30.
The restaurant, which is an entity of Fixins Soul Kitchen of Sacramento, serves lunch and dinner, and its menu features the “Changes” hitmaker’s favorites, including fried chicken wings and meatloaf.
Tupac Shakur dreamed of having his own restaurant
AmericanPost.News reports that the Hip-Hop icon came up with the concept before his murder nearly 26 years ago, which remains unsolved. In September 1996, Shakur was struck four times in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. He died six days later at the age of 25.
In a handwritten note found by family members, Tupac wanted the cafe to be a place for “divaz” and “playaz.” His family shared an image of the note on Instagram. According to Eater Los Angeles, the pop-up restaurant has already popped up in Fresno, California, and New York City in recent years.
