Today would have been Tupac’s 45th birthday and today the first teaser trailer for upcoming Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez on Me has been released.
The story shows the rise of the one of the most influencial, inspiration and greatest rap artists to have ever lived. From his early life of growing up all the way up until the day of his death, this biopic is something I’m eagerly looking forward too with Straight Outta Compton and Notorious both being incredible biopic movies.
All Eyes on Me stars Demetrius Shipp Jr. as Shakur, a perfect look alike and alongside him is Jamal Woolard, stepping back into the role of the Notorious B.I.G. after portraying him in 2009’s Notorious. The Walking Dead‘s Danai Gurira plays Afeni Shakur, Tupac’s mother; Kat Graham as Shakur’s lifelong friend Jada Pinkett; Stefon Washington as Puff Daddy; and The Vampire Diaries‘ Lauren Cohan as Leila Steinberg, Shakur’s mentor and first manager.
All Eyez on Me hits theaters on November 11th.
Happy Birthday Pac. Rest in Peace.
