He is a legend and has always been ahead of time. Tupac Shakur was greatly appreciated in the music business and worldwide. Shocked by his tragic death, the world has done so much to try to keep his memory alive. Brought “back to life” as a hologram and joined Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg at the 2012 Coachella Music Festival. Even now the memory is still being pushed.
Directed by Benny Boom, the much talked about biopic All Eyes on Me has naturally grasped the attention of many celebs. With an iconic celebrity as well known and respected as the late Tupac Shakur, you would think that Hollywood would try their best to portray the rappers life as accurate as possible… think again.
Actress Jada Pinkett-Smith most certainly did not agree with way she and Tupac’s relationship was portrayed. In a stream of tweets, she spoke her mind and set the record straight.
“Forgive me … my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth,” the actress wrote.
Tupac was not a one hit wonder and he never fell of his game in the industry, so viewers are constantly curious to dig a little deeper in the life and times of the late rapper. Tupac was special to Jada, I can most certainly understand the frustration of an incorrect portrayal of a genuine relationship.
The juice doesn’t stop there. Rapper 50cent also had a mouthful to say about the movie… or maybe just one word, “TRASH.”
Just like there are two sides to every story, there’s even more sides to an opinion of something.
Tupac’s great friend M.C.Hammer defended the biopic saying that the movie was not a documentary and everything in the film wasn’t supposed to be factual.
Wait for it… There’s more.
According to Billboard:
What are your thoughts on the new movie? Was the great Tupac given the best portrayal/ image possible or could Hollywood have done a little better?
