Tupac's been known to incite a lot of things — in life and death.

But laughter?Tonight at Stone Mountain's Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts (5616 Memorial Dr.), comedian Mike Epps presents a birthday celebration and benefit concert in honor of the fallen rapper.

Featured guests include Big Boi, Bun B, members of Dungeon Family, Eightball & MJG, Lil Scrappy, Playaz Circle and more.As for the comic relief, Mike Epps says his streetwise brand of comedy was inspired by Pac, per the press release below:“I’m a long-time fan of Pac’s music.

It’s always been the soundtrack for overcoming struggle and when my life was in a desolate place it was his messages that helped bring me through,” says Epps.

“I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for his inspiration.

It’s an honor for me to stand alongside his mother, Afeni Shakur in celebrating such a personal moment in her son’s history.”On a side note, I interviewed Mike Epps via phone a few years ago.

It was memorable.

I think I sorta pissed him off after inquiring about whether he'd used drugs in the past.

He responded by unloading his gangsta dossier.

I kept listening for the punchline.

It never came.

The fact that he was serious made it that much funnier.

Trying to keep a straight face while Mike Epps snaps on you is like watching Eddie Murphy sing without busting a gut.

Whether its "Party All the Time" or his Jimmy Early solo in Dreamgirls, it just ain't happenin'.Funds raised at tonight's event will support the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts.Tupac Shakur Birthday Celebration and Celebrity Fundraiser.
