We have all been waiting for Tupac’s All Eyez On Me biopic. As the release date gets closer, June 16, 2017 – the more we can’t wait to see how his life is portrayed.
In most recent news, another new documentary of Tupac Shakur will be released. Director, Steve McQueen who also worked on 12 Years of Slaves, will be working with Tupac’s family to release a new project.
The film will be in collaboration with Amaru Entertainment, which is a company created by Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur, and White Horse Pictures.
McQueen says he’s extremely moved and excited to be exploring the life and times of the legendary artists. “I attended NYU film school in 1993 and can remember the unfolding hip-hop world and my overlapping with Tupac’s through a mutual friend in a small way. Few, if any shined brighter than Tupac Shakur. I look forward to working closely with his family to tell the unvarnished story of this talented man.”
Tupac is known as one of the most iconic rappers. His history explains so much of how the hip-hop industry has changed over the years. One thing forsure – Tupac will never be forgotten. Gloria Cox, Tupac’s aunt, will act as executive producer. If you’re worried of how Tupac’s legacy will be shown, we can relax because his own family will be in charge of production.
