From the moment I started seeing photos pop up on Instagram of Demetrius Shipp Jr. in character for the up and coming Tupac biopic, "All Eyez on Me," I knew this film was going to be something special. Any fan of 90's hip-hop and those of us who are old enough to remember the infamous east coast, west coast beef, would inevitable have to compare this film to "Notorious," the 2009 Biggie Smalls biopic, which I always thought was a bit premature. After all it was 6 years before "Straight Outta Compton," the NWA biopic.
I was always drawn more to Tupac, even though he was a west coast rapper, because of his strong social and political convictions, but that doesn't mean I am biased when I say this trailer looks like it will be a much better film than "Notorious."
Take a look at the teaser for both films below and let us know what you think in the comments.
