All Eyez on Me, the long-awaited biopic of late rapper Tupac Shakur, will be released June 16, on what would have been his 46th birthday.
The film follows the life of the iconic 1990s rapper, depicting his rise to stardom as a hip-hop artist, actor, poet and activist, as well as his imprisonment and affiliation to Death Row Records, owned by the controversial Suge Knight.
The Benny Boom-directed film stars Demetrius Shipp Jr. as Shakur. Danai Gurira, Kat Graham, Dominic Santana, Jamal Woolard, Keith Robinson, Lauren Cohan and Hill Harper.
All Eyez on Me was produced by Morgan Creek’s James G. Robinson and David Robinson, along with Program Pictures’ LT Hutton.
Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment has acquired the U.S. rights of the flick.
Tupac Shakur, regarded as one of the greatest rappers of all time, has sold more than 75 million records worldwide.
His fourth studio album, 1996’s All Eyez on Me, has sold more than 10 million copies.
One of the late rapper’s famous love letters was recently auctioned by Goldin Auctions for $25, 000.
The explicit love letter is a poetic prose that was written during his prison stint in 1995.
