Renaissance Men

For someone who's been dead (yeah, "allegedly," whatever) for nearly 16 years, Tupac Shakur sure has been in the news a lot lately. First the deceased rapper got some California love when a hologram resembling him "performed" alongside Snoop Dogg at Coachella. Then it was revealed that a gunman had admitted to involvement in a shooting that targeted Shakur two years prior to the gunbattle that resulted in his death.

We're not sure what comedian/rapper/filmmaker Mike Epps makes of all the ruckus, but as he made a documentary about a member of Tupac's Outlawz crew, chances are good the rapper might be a topic of conversation during upcoming sets at Stand Up Live.

Those looking for laughs will be treated to an in-person (read: non-holographic) Epps performing throughout the weekend.
