 Tupac Shakur’s dream restaurant may finally open, and it’s all thanks in part to rap star Nas.

According to Page Sixx, Sweet Chick — the Lower East Side restaurant that’s backed by Nas — will launch a Powamekka Café pop-up to coincide with Shakur’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Shakur, who died in 1996, apparently imagined an eatery called the Powamekka Café, which he meticulously detailed in three pages of a notebook — complete with blue prints, recipes and a logo.

His handwritten plans for the place detailed a spot where patrons could “play and parlay” and “escape the worldz cold reality” while being served “down home Southern” food. The notes reportedly included restroom signs marked, “Divaz” and “Playaz.”

The pop-up is slated to go down on April 7 to 9, and the concept’s been created with the blessing of Shakur’s estate.

Tupac-inspired dishes will include meatloaf, gumbo and “his cousin Jamala’s fried chicken wings,” organizers said. The place will include a collection from Shakur’s archives, including photos, poetry and memorabilia from his favorite artists.

If you don’t recall, Nas and Pac famously got into a rap beef early on in their careers but settled their differences before Pac’s death at the 1996 MTV Awards.

We think it’s dope that Nas is helping keep the slain rappers legacy alive.

“It’s not a scripted show. This isn’t something from the network. We control all this. It’s about time that the people see some real reality s**t. Thank God for Mona Scott Young. She definitely deserves some credit. Even to get the opportunity to get on the platform. But it’s up to you how to you to be represented to the world.”
