Looking for a positive word about the Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me has been quite a challenge. Critics, social media pundits and even celebrities have been calling the film an assortment of things. 50 Cent called it “trash” and said we should watch it on Firestick. ‘Pac’s friend Jada Pinkett-Smith went as far to call the film inaccurate and “hurtful.”
But Snoop Dogg has come forward to debunk both of those reviews. The legendary rapper took to Twitter to share his thoughts.

Snoop inducted Tupac into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year and formed a tight-knit relationship with the rapper during their time on Death Row Records. Even though they weren’t on the best of terms when Tupac died, Tha Doggfather obviously still holds a special place in his heart for his friend and isn’t tolerating any slander.
Snoop also directed his followers to an L.A. Weekly piece by Original Gangstas author Ben Westoff titled “The All Eyez On Me Reviews Are Bullsh*t,” where he writes:
“On the whole, All Eyez on Me should be celebrated for its forthright and accurate-as-possible portrayal of its protagonist. Especially since it comes on the heels of a quarter-century of dishonest reporting about the man.”
