Tupac Shakur’s estate brought his Powamekka Café to fruition in the wake of his death via pop-ups in Fresno, California, New York City and, most recently, Los Angeles. Thanks to a new partnership with LA’s Fixins Soul Kitchen, the restaurant will be extending its stay in the City of Angels for a few more days.

The pop-up started on June 16 and was initially scheduled to end June 30, but with the recent extension, the closing date has been pushed back to July 7. 

Prior to his untimely death, Tupac, known to the world as a rapper and actor, had also envisioned himself as a restaurant owner. In a handwritten note found by his family, he expressed his hope that the cafe would be a destination for “divaz” and “playaz,” “a passionate paradise 4 people with power 2 play and parlay” and “the perfect hideout 4 those who wish 2 escape the world’z cold reality.”
