Tupac's 38th Birthday Marked With Atlanta Celebration Concert

Today is the 38th birthday of rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur and folks here in Atlanta are celebrating with a concert.

Tupacs mother, Afeni Shakur, has confirmed the participation of more celebrities for today’s (June 16) Atlanta celebration of her son’s 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 in Stone Mountain, GA, 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.
