Tupac Shakur died 20 years ago today. One of the most highly-anticipated movies is the life story of the rap icon. In honor of the anniversary of his death, a new trailer has been released for the biopic All Eyez On Me.
In it, we see various facets of Pac's life, from his close relationship to mother Afeni Shakur to signing with Death Row Records. "Like all black leaders, you have a bullseye on your back," says Afeni. "I ain't no black leader," he responds. We see actor Demetrius Shipp, Jr.’s performance as the legend as he speaks to longtime rival The Notorious B.I.G. (telling him, "Loyalty is everything"). We also see Pac going to prison and getting shot.
According to Rolling Stone, the cast features Danai Gurira as Afeni Shakur, Dominic L. Santana as Suge Knight, Annie Ilonzeh as Kidada Jones and Jamal Woolard as the Notorious B.I.G. Fans remember Woolard as playing the late rapper in Notorious.
All Eyez On Me doesn't have a release date yet but Fact Magazine cites that it could be as early as November. What do you think of the trailer?
