Rap icon, Tupac Shakur's fast and complicated life is about to be filmed starting this June.

Now you might say, ''Hey? Didn't I already here about this like four years ago?'' And to that I say, YES! This movie has been talked about for quite a number of years now, but everything is finally set in place. Well, almost everything.

As far as we know, the cast hasn't been chosen yet. That includes the role of Tupac himself. Which is quite understandable because it's going to take more than a guy with a bald head, tattoos, and a bandana to play his role. How is someone supposed to play a person so complicated? A man who knew he was going it die before he was 30 years old? Who knows, I couldn't do it, that's for sure. Hopefully everyone behind this movie knows exactly what they're doing with the rap genre icon, or else there is going to be huge backlash.

Thankfully, one of the people behind the movie include his mother herself, Ms. Afeni Shakur. Who I'm sure wouldn't let the same kind of atrocities happen to this movie like that of other biopics.

Take Aaliyah's biopic for instance. If you haven't seen should know that it was very, very poorly made. It was sort of rushed, and she really wasn't given a proper tribute with the film at all. Her family wasn't behind it either, but Tupac's biopic is obviously in a different place. It has the full support from people that actually knew and loved him in person.

Another thing, one of many, to mention is that all of [Tupac](movie:40842)'s legendary music rights have been acquired. So a proper biopic can take place with all of his most recognizable songs!

10 Things They Have To Feature In Tupac's Biopic

  • Tupac
  • Poverty
  • Bullets
  • Bandanas
  • Rapping
  • Success
  • Death
  • Knowledge
  • A Mega East Coast - West Coast Rap War
  • A Legacy

And so much more! I can't begin to express how many important things they have to include in this movie!

But again, this brand new biopic seems to be headed in the right direction. Hopefully this is proven true whenever the film is finally released.
