Despite what was perceived as a bi-coastal rap war, the East Coast had love for Tupac and it continues today, as a star-studded group will celebrate the hip-hop martyr’s 33rd birthday.

The party takes place at The Coral Room in New York on 512 West 29th Street. Appearances include Chuck D of Public Enemy, The Outlawz, Immortal Technique, spoken word artist Amanda Diva, Digital Underground, Saigon, Sway of MTV and others. Pac’s immediate family, Jim Jones of The Diplomats, Kanye West, Treach from Naughty by Nature and Ghostf ace Killah are expected to appear as guests.

Organizer Candy Man stated that the birthday celebration will focus on Tupac’s more prolific, activist side side.

“There was more to Pac than all that drama. Tupac did want peace. He was positive. He saw what was going on and he said, ‘Lets change this.’ Tupac had a big dream. [Fans] listen to his music, but … there was a lot more to Tupac that people portray,” he said.

Candy Man said that the performers were handpicked by Pac’s stepfather/activist Mutulu Shakur. Additionally, any proceeds from the birthday party will go towards Mutulu’s legal defense fund and Tupac Amaru Shakur Center For The Arts fund. Mutulu is currently incarcerated in the Atlanta-area for crimes centered around bank robberies. He maintains his innocence and has pledged that he is a victim of the government’s Counterintelligence Program (COINTELPRO).

Of Mutulu’s influence on his son Candy Man said, “Most people know that Mutulu was one of the biggest figures in Tupac’s life, especially father-wise and with people of color, this is something that affects all of us deeply.

“The significance of the event is to educate brothers about whats going on, what’s happening and continuing Tupac’s legend. Its all about carrying on his legacy, his memory.”

For those that want to remember Tupac further, they can purchase “Tupac: Resurrection,” a DVD that is specially edited to be narrated by Pac himself.

The DVD version features an abundance of new material including commentary by Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, four deleted scenes, a fiery Malcolm X dinner speech, an interview with Mutulu Shakur and a number of other featues.

Tupac was murdered on September 13, 1996. He would have been 33.

Hey Caramelpython

I heard a tribute to Tupac today here in California. It lasted severals hours this morning. It was powerful. The brother said some stuff I had never heard, and it was a great reflection of him and the deep thinking and positive aspects he had about him. You know I wish I had recorded the program. I'm gonna ask the DJ to burn the program onto CD.. he is cool like that.

Tupac often said he didn't like his father. That he was never there. Now that is not a good thing , on the fathers part, using and needing or using his son's talent, and love he garnered in the world, TUPAC felt he fell into a life of crime because he didn't have a father figure. Now he needs to use him like this to bail him out of jail and a life of crime as serious as bankrobbery. I have mixed feeling on the fathers attempt to portray love that wasn't there. I do hope the program goes well.. and the proceeds go toward the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center For The Arts fund. That brother was a deep poet.

The government is going to milk those funds and use all of our tax dollars to win their case. His father would do better by giving all the proceeds to the center.

Now I say honor thy father and mother, but Tupac spoke what he felt. I ain't mad at him for that.

i love 2pac as a poet... thanx for the info!

if u dont mind ima share 2 of my favs

and a really good book about by his former love interest is out.

and a really good book about by his former love interest is out: inside a thugs heart( 2pac/angela ardis)


A Love Unspoken

What of a love unspoken? Is it weaker without a name?
Does this love deserve 2 exist without a title
because I dare not share its name
Does that make me crule and cold
2 deny the world of my salvation
because I chose 2 let it grow
People tend 2 choke
that which they do not understand
why shouldn't I be weary
and withold this love from MAN
what of a love unspoken
no one ever knows
But this is a love that lasts
and in secrecy it grows
_______________________________
Forever and Today

U say that u'll love me forever but what about today
As the dusks become dawns and the years pass on will u love me the same way
If so let us rejoice and bathe in constant pleasure
if not spare my heart today and I shall recover before forever
And if my doubts and ?'s upset u, forgive my fragile heart
I jus wanted 2 kno if u'd love me forever before today would start!
