With today (September 13th) being the 20th anniversary of Tupac Shakur’s death, it is a bittersweet time in hip hop as fans worldwide both celebrate and mourn his passing.
However, two establishments are hoping to honor him in completely different ways. A Fresno, CA restaurant will transform into a pop-up shop based on one of ‘Pac’s ideas, the Powamekka Café, and now a second trailer of his upcoming film All Eyez On Me has been revealed.
Produced by Morgan Creek Productions and directed by Benny Boom, the film stars Danai Gurira, Harold House Moore, Kat Graham, Dominic L. Santana, Jamal Woolard (who played The Notorious B.I.G in that rapper’s 2009 biopic, Notorious), and first-time actor Demetrius Shipp Jr. who bears an uncanny resemblance to ‘Pac. This snippet shows more of 2Pac’s life, from his experiences with former Vice President Dan Quayle to getting shot multiple times, his final ride with Suge Knight and more.
The film was slated to come out on November 11th, 2016. However, IMDB has removed that release date from the credits and there is no updated date.
