So I was just blind-sided by the news that they're making a sequel to the highly successful 'Straight Outta Compton' movie. And all reports are saying it will focus mainly on 2Pac, Snoop Dogg, and Death Row Records.
This is what the movie is said to be about so far.
According to TMZ, Dogg Pound 4 Life will reportedly focus on another prominent West Coast rap collective, Death Row Records, specifically the careers of Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Warren G., and Kurupt, as well as Death Row head Suge Knight.
Music will be the plot’s primarily focus, according to TMZ, but it “also won’t whitewash gang violence and its impact on the rap industry.”In terms of casting, TMZ reports that none of the actors featured in Straight Outta Compton are expected to reprise their roles. Instead, Dr. Dre’s son, Curtis Young, will play the role of his father.
Honestly, this movie doesn't seem like a bad idea at all. It sounds like it will be just as intriguing as 'Straight Outta Compton'.
This is now the third upcoming movie that will have Tupac in it as a primary character. Directors John Singleton and Carl Franklin are both making standalone films about the life of the legendary MC. And the first is set to be released just next year.
