Afeni Shakur has confirmed the participation of more celebrities for todays (June 16) Atlanta celebration of her sons birthday.
The idea for the event originated with co-host Mike Epps, who worked hard to fit in the festivities with his national comedy tour commitment, and two new movies in Next Day Air and Janky Promoters.
The benefit concert will take place in the Tupac Amaru Center for the Arts, and feature appearances from Big Boi, Dungeon Family, Playas Circle, Bun B, Lil Scrappy, Young LA, B.o.B., and Eightball and MJG.
Along with Mike Epps, hosting duties will be handled by Dead Prez member M-1.
While attending the concert, first-time visitors to the Stone Mountain facility can experience the rotating exhibits, gift shop, 6-acre Peace Garden, and purchase Tupac memorabilia.
Tickets for the event are $25, and can be purchased at www.tasf.org, or the Tupaac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts box office, located on 5616 Memorial Drive in Stone Mountain, GA.
All proceeds from the fundraising concert will go to the Tupac Amaru Center for the Arts.
In the thirteen years since his death, Tupac has become an iconic figure whose influence has been studied on musical, educational, and social levels.
Today, Tupac Amaru Shakur would have celebrated his 38th birthday.
