       Rick Ross was asked to perform at Shakur's 40th birthday concert celebration Thursday night,and he didn't hesitate to take the stage to pay homage to the slain rapper he calls his role model.
"Tupac played father for a lot of dudes like me," Ross told a crowd of about 500 at the Atlanta Symphony Hall after he and Meek Mills performed their single "Tupac Back."Ross along with singer Erykah Badu, jazz musician Roy Ayers, rapper Bun B, and the rap group 8Ball & MJG joined to raise money for the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation to help students develop their skill in the creative arts.
Comedian Mike Epps hosted the concert and presented a $10,000 check to Shakur's mother, Afeni Shakur, for the foundation. Attendees stood and applauded Epps for the donation.
