We’re less than a month away from the theater debut of the N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton, and today we’re blessed with the first look at Marcc Rose as Tupac Shakur. Director John Singleton, who plans to put together a 2Pac biopic of his own at some point, took to Instagram earlier today for the official unveiling.
Based off looks alone, Rose is a dead ringer for the fallen Hip-Hop legend, but the real question remains… can he actually pull off portraying Pac? Because we all know people have tried and failed (miserably) before. Yeah, I’m talking to you, Papa Doc.
Straight Outta Compton hits theaters August 14th.
