Before his passing, the "All Eyez on Me" rapper drafted a logo and theme with the hopes of opening up "The Powamekka Cafe" -- a music-themed restaurant where artists could include their own recipes -- but sadly could not bring his vision to life.

Take 3 will honor Shakur's vision with the pop-up, where patrons can order Tupac-inspired dishes such as "Thug Passion" cake pops, "Mac-and-Cheeseburgers" or even a "California Love" chicken sandwich. The celebration -- which will begin at 7 p.m. -- will also give local artists the  opportunity to cover some of Tupac's greatest hits. 

A Tupac biopic, All Eyez on Me, is also set to hit theaters on November 11, 2016; watch the trailer below.
