Atlanta was the central celebration location yesterday (June 16th) for what would have been Tupac Shakur’s 38th birthday. The 1st annual Tupac Birthday All-Star Benefit Concert was held at The Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Atlanta and his mother, Afeni Shakur & actor/comedian Mike Epps joined forces to honor the fallen rapper.
The unique partnership was created by Epps, who despite juggling a national comedy tour, promotion of the new DVD ?Funny Bidness? and two box-office films, ?Next Day Air? and ?Janky Promoters,? felt honored to interrupt his busy schedule to celebrate the late rapper:
?I?m a long-time fan of Pac?s music. It?s always been the soundtrack for overcoming struggle and when my life was in a desolate place it was his messages that helped bring me through,? says Epps. ?I wouldn?t be where I am today if it wasn?t for his inspiration. It?s an honor for me to stand alongside his mother, Afeni Shakur in celebrating such a personal moment in her son?s history.?
