WATCH: Tupac Biopic Releases Second Trailer

Tupac Shakur died twenty years ago today. Hip-hop is sitting solemnly this week, as we remember the life and death of the great Makaveli.

Among the tributes, articles, investigations and conspiracies pouring out today, the upcoming Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me has shared its second official theatrical trailer. The first was released to coincide with his 45th birthday earlier this year – and no, it’s not the unauthorised Chinese version.

The film was initially schedule to be released this month, probably around now. However, it was pushed back until November, allegedly due to licensing issues for the track Ambitionz Az A Ridah, with production money owed to Dogg Pound‘s Daz Dillinger.

The biopic is now scheduled for a November release. However, considering the film (and many proposed Tupac films before it) has already faced many issues, it’s not going to be that surprising if there are more delays. The trailer leaves this open, concluding with the simple words “Coming Soon.”

The film is set to star Demetrius Shipp Jr as Tupac Shakur, Jamal Woolard as The Notorious B.I.G, who previously played the late rapper in his own biopic Notorious, Danai Gurira as Afenia Shakur, Stefon Washington as Puff Daddy, Grace Gibson as Faith Evans and more.
