New York grill brings rapper Tupac’s cafeteria prophesy to life


NEW YORK A grill in New York has temporarily brought to life an eatery envisioned by Tupac Shakur, coinciding with a late rapper’s initiation into a Rock Roll Hall of Fame.

Sweet Chick, a Southern-style grill in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, remade into ‘Powamekka Cafe’ on Friday, formed on Shakur’s skeleton that were created on 3 handwritten pages in his personal journal, a grill said.

The pop-up cafe, recreated in partnership with Shakur’s estate, will be open by Sunday and will underline some of a rapper’s favorite dishes such as macaroni and cheese, meatloaf, cheese fries and boiled duck wings.

It will also have some of a rapper’s personal photos, communication and memorabilia on arrangement and special equipment for fans to purchase.

Shakur, who was 25 when he was killed in a drive-by sharpened in 1996, is one of a many successful total in swat history. On Friday he will turn usually a sixth swat act to be inducted into a Rock Roll Hall of Fame.
