'All Eyez On Me' LA Premiere
Very few icons impact multiple generations, so I would say Tupac Shukar through his style, his music, and his sheer braggadocio influenced the world and still does. So when I went to the LA Premiere of the 'All Eyez On Me' Tupac Bio Pic there was a summer buzz in the air. Was Tupac back? Many were asked what there favorite Pac moment and song was- it ranged from Actress Lisa Raye saying hers was the music video she appeared in "Toss It Up" to classics like "How Do You Want It". The lead actor playing Tupac was newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr., who eerily plays the part too well. With an uncanny resemblance you could argue Demetrius was born the play this role. With celebrity after celebrity coming down the black carpet, this was not your regular movie premiere. With old school rappers like Danna Dane and Hip Hop pioneers like DJ Quik walking about this was a win for the culture. Opening up at the third spot in the box office this past weekend against all odds the Tupac bio pic beat out the projections and was a hit theaters.
