This week the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts was also the setting for the new video for the single "PAC'S Life" featuring T.I. and Ashanti.
Since 2Pac's tragic death ten years ago, his spirit has been kept alive thanks to the extraordinary body of work he left behind, and the commitment his mother Afeni Shakur, has made to continue to get his complete body of work out; work considered even more astonishing given that he was only 25 years old when he was murdered in September 1996. Throughout his life and in the decade since his untimely passing, Tupac has become a role model and inspiration for generations of aspiring artists the world over. To this day, 2PAC remains the greatest hip hop artist of all time.
The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation (TASF) was founded by Afeni Shakur to provide training and support to artists who aspire to enhance their creative talents. TASF fosters an environment that encourages freedom of expression, serves as a resource for the arts, and empowers through education. To date, more than 600 students have benefited from the program with a broad range of training available via the Annual Performing Arts Day Camp held at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts (home of the Foundation in Stone Mountain, Georgia).
