“How Do You Want It/ California Love” peaked #1 for 24 weeks from platinum selling album Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z , “Dear Mama” , “I Get Around” and quadruple platinum album All Eyes On Me just to name a few , you can imagine the fan’s anticipation for the biopic for Tupac Anaru Shakur.
Its 15 years later and still people rave about Tupac Amaru Shakur as if he never left. He may not be here physically but his spirit, music and energy still move throughout blogs, the radio, television and discussions from everyday society. He was considered socially conscious; he had a lot of truth to speak about the world we live in.
No one can ever discuss or list any of the greatest hip hop artist to do it, without the mention of Tupac. He made his mark far beyond high with his music, poetry, acting and controversial lifestyle in the media.
This week is the release of a highly anticipated biopic for Tupac. I must say as a huge fan myself I am more than excited to see this movie.
Actor Demetrius Ship Jr. will be playing the role of Tupac. The casting for this big role, based of looks alone is head on.
They look just alike. What do you you think?
Fact: Demetrius Ship Sr. (father) worked with Tupac on album The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory.
As all of his fans anticipate this biopic but, the biggest question is : Is this movie going to meet the hype or the expectations of the viewer? Will it be cheesy? Will it be something people continue to talk about for weeks to come? After all this is Tupac- a platinum selling artist not just known for his music alone. His music is still generates revenue like he is still here.
Who would want to be disappointed,take the Aaliyah biopic for example (enough said).
