Watch a Teaser for the Tupac Biopic: ‘All Eyez on Me’

By Hayden Wright

Today would have marked Tupac Shakur’s 45th birthday, an occasion which has become an annual remembrance of his life cut short. Since is death in 1996, artists and journalists have explored his legacy and examined that brief, fascinating life—a never-ending search for clues about the man behind the music. Also marking the day is the release of the first trailer for All Eyez on Me, the upcoming biopic about ‘Pac directed by famed video director Benny Boom, and featuring other figures from the 90s rap scene.

Demetrius Shipp, Jr. will play Tupac and told XXL Magazine that he feels a kinship with the late rap pioneer.

“I have to say that I’m a very passionate person, a person that’s very driven on integrity and my beliefs,” Shipp said. “I believe there’s definitely a similarity there. Just getting into the character, I fell in love with who he was. It was common things that were brought together with me and him, our childhood. It was a crazy thing to be able to do it.”

The trailer features powerful voiceover by Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead), who plays Tupac’s mother Afeni Shakur, the activist who passed away earlier this year.
