Another day, another All Eyez On Me criticism. Now, one of Tupac’s friends, legendary rapper Scarface, is questioning the authenticity of the movie.
If you didn’t know by now, not everybody is a fan of the Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me. The latest thumbs down comes from Scarface, with whom Tupac recorded one of his last verses with for ‘Face’s 1997 single “Smile.”
‘Face was a special guest at the Classic Hip-Hop Lives event in Chicago where legendary artists perform and sit down for an interview with host Knowledge Beckom. Of course, the topic of All Eyez On Me came up and ‘Face answered truthfully, and biasedly.
He claimed that if ‘Pac’s close friends like Big Syke, Spice 1, Too $hort, Richie Rich and to a lesser degree himself, were not mentioned or portrayed, then in it’s “not a real Tupac movie.” After that, he took the microphone from the stand and stood up as if he were about to deliver some realer talk than that, which he did.
‘Face urged the crowd, that whenever he dies, do not buy any albums that any record label puts out on him. In that context, he also urged people to stop supporting Tupac related albums and films and to “let [Pac] rest.” He also added that since both Tupac and his mother Afeni Shakur are dead, and that he never had any children, there is no reason to support anymore Tupac related material because any money made would not be going to his family anyway.
