A pop-up Tupac-inspired cafe will open in Fresno to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the rapper’s death.
Before he died, the “Keep Ya Head Up” rapper left behind sketches for a cookbook and a restaurant based on his recipes.
The Powamekka Cafe will open thanks to Take 3, a Fresno burger shop, and Sam Hansen, a foodie and marketing director for the Fresno Grizzlies, a minor league baseball team, according to Rolling Stone.
The cafe will serve menu items from Tupac’s original sketches, as well as some of their own Tupac-themed dishes, such as a California Love Chicken Sandwich and Hennessey Apple Butter chicken wings.
Included will be Thug Passion cake pops, champagne cakes coated with Alizé butter cream frosting.
Adding to the Tupac tribute, Powamekka Cafe’s opening night will feature musical performances and an art show.
The rapper’s mother, Afeni Shakur, died May 2 at the age of 69.
Tupac was shot on Sept. 7, 1996 in Las Vegas, Nevada. After six days in the hospital, the then-25-year-old succumbed to his injuries. His shooter was never caught.
It is set to open on Sept. 13, the anniversary of Tupac’s death.
