HipHopWired Featured Video

It’s been a long time in the making, but after a few setbacks namely the back-to-back-to-back departures of directors Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) John Singleton (Boyz N The Hood), and Carl Franklin (Devil In A Blue Dress), the film based on the life of Tupac Shakur is finally gaining traction with it’s new director Benny Boom (Next Day Air) at the helm of the film aptly titled All Eyez On Me.

With the releases of Hip-Hop biopics such as 8 Mile, Get Rich or Die Tryin’, Notorious, and more recently Straight Outta Compton, it seems only right that the legendary artist is the next Hip-Hop icon to have his story told.

Now that the director is in place, casting has begun and HipHopWired has compiled a list of who’s been chosen thus far to play the roles of your favorite rapper, and the people who influenced his life.

See who’s who on the following pages.
