Tupac Shakur was a hugely influential figure in the world of rap and hip-hop right up until the moment when he was killed in a drive-by shooting at 25 years young. All Eyez On Me, is a Lionsgate’s rap biopic and after languishing in development for years, finally we have a release date to be June 16th.
To wet our appetite a gripping first trailer has arrived, in it Demetrius Shipp Jr. take on the role of the visionary artist, flanked by Kat Graham, Lauren Cohan, Hill Harper, Jamal Woolard and Danai Gurira.
From roadie/back-up dancer to one of the biggest artists on the planet, Benny Boom’s biopic is set to chronicle 2Pac’s blistering rise to superstardom, and how he made a few enemies along the way.
Promising to tell the true and untold story of one of the greatest rappers to ever live, All Eyez On Me bows in select theaters on June 16th.
