Newcomer Demetrius Shipp, Jr. stars as the legendary Tupac Shakur in this powerful, true, and untold story of the rapper, actor, poet, and activist – from his early days in New York City to his evolution into a cultural icon whose legacy continues to grow long after his untimely death at the age of twenty-five. ALL EYEZ ON ME also stars Kat Graham, Lauren Cohan, Hill Harper, Jamal Woolard, and Danai Gurira.
A very well done look into what made Tupac into the super star he was becoming when he was shot to death whilst driving down the road. The murder is still unsolved and may never get solved considering the rumors and theories that suggest the police had something to do with the entire horrible situation. I went in wondering if I would even recognize any of Tupac’s music, I was never a huge fan and being a middle class white kid in a religious family his music wasn’t welcome in our home, so I was pleasantly surprised to recognize nearly a dozen of the tracks. Demetrius Shipp, Jr does an absolutely stunning job in his role, I’m sad that he hasn’t done much movie-wise since this came out in 2017.
