New, 5 comments

Right on what would have been the legendary rapper's 45th birthday, the first trailer for the upcoming Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez on Me has arrived. Here, we see the rise of one of rap's greatest performers, from his early life on through the violent east coast-west coast hip-hop rivalry that defined his career and all the way up to his death after a drive-by shooting in 1996.

All Eyes on Me, helmed by music video and film director Benny Boom, stars Demetrius Shipp Jr. as Shakur, looking every inch the part as he takes the stage. Joining him is Jamal Woolard, stepping back into the role of the Notorious B.I.G. after portraying him in 2009's Notorious. Rounding out the cast are The Walking Dead's Danai Gurira as Afeni Shakur; Kat Graham as Shakur's lifelong friend Jada Pinkett; Stefon Washington as Puff Daddy; and The Vampire Diaries' Lauren Cohan as Leila Steinberg, Shakur's mentor and first manager. All Eyez on Me hits theaters on November 11th.
