All Eyez On Me

Posted June 16 2016 — 9:02 AM EDT

Just in time for what would have been the late rapper’s 45th birthday, a new teaser trailer for the upcoming Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez on Me has been released.

The tense clip, which was posted to the Instagram account of radio show Big Boy’s Neighborhood, features a voiceover from The Walking Dead starDanai Gurira, who plays Shakur’s mother, Afeni, in the upcoming film. “This ain’t just about you. Like all black men, you have a bullseye on your back. They are going to give you the tools that you need to destroy yourself,” she says, a somber version of “Ambitionz Az A Ridah” plays in the background as scenes showing a chanting crowd, an FBI raid, and the rapper performing onstage flash by. “Above all else, to thine own self be true. Now, let me see your spirit.”

All Eyez On Me endured a troubled pre-production phase that saw a revolving door of directors, including Antoine Fuqua, Carl Franklin, and John Singleton, enter (then exit) the project, on top of a legal battle between film company Morgan Creek and Afeni. The rights to the biopic reverted back to Tupac’s estate in 2015, and the film secured veteran music video director Benny Boom to helm the project. All Eyez On Me was partiall filmed in Atlanta, Georgia, and completed production in Las Vegas in April.

In addition to Gurira, newcomer Demetrius Shipp, Jr. stars in the film as the music icon, who was killed in a 1996 drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. The trailer also introduces Dominic L. Satana as Suge Knight and recording artist Maino as one of Tupac’s associates, Walter “King Tut” Johnson.

Watch the new teaser trailer for All Eyez on Me in the video above, ahead of the film’s planned Nov. 11 release date.

STATEMENT FROM THE SHAKUR FAMILY AND THE ESTATE OF TUPAC SHAKUR REGARDING AFENI SHAKUR PDF Print E-mail
Written by TASF   
Wednesday, 11 May 2016 01:08

We are deeply saddened by the untimely passing of Afeni Shakur.

 

Afeni embodied strength, resilience, wisdom, and love. She was a pioneer for social change and was committed to building a more peaceful world.

An outspoken and eloquent advocate for today’s youth, Afeni founded the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation to instill a sense of freedom of expression and education through the arts.

 

Afeni was a deeply devoted mother, grandmother and sister. Her spirit will forever inspire all of those who had the honor and privilege of knowing her.

 

With love and endless respect,

The Shakur Family and The Estate of Tupac Shakur

 

“You always was a black queen, mama…

There’s no way I can pay you back

but the plan is to show you that I understand

You are appreciated.”

Tupac Shakur, “Dear Mama”

 



The family has received numerous inquiries on ways to honor the memory of Afeni Shakur.  What would have pleased Afeni the most would be a donation in any amount to the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation, the foundation she created to carry forward Tupac’s vision of inspiring young people to excel in life through the arts.

Donations may be made here:

This film is NOT speculations like many others, this is the real thing from the man Tupac Shakur chose to have him followed around to document in video and photos the inner-side of Pac's rise and untimely death. We at ThugLifeArmy.com are extremely excited that this project even exists.

An exclusive 2008 interview with Afeni Shakur and Thug Life Army.. PDF Print E-mail
Written by Robert (RB) Riddle

By Robert (RB) Riddle Thug Life Army

This is Part Two of our ‘Exclusive’ web interview with Afeni Shakur-Davis, mother of the late hip hop icon, poet, actor, and social activist Tupac Shakur (2Pac).

In the second part of the interview Afein Shakur-Davis goes into Pac’s Kids and the summer camps, the publishing of Tupac hip hop music, the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation, a normal day for Afeni Shakur-Davis and life on her organic farm. She also tells us her favorite Tupac (2Pac) tracks, music and the remains of Tupac’s ashes. We also ask what she would like Afeni Shakur-Davis’ Legacy to be. She also speaks to the young people and gives direction to them.

Most notably you will hear that she asks for help. Not for herself, she is a giving person, but help to finish the Center for the Arts. The Foundation and the Arts Center are dear to her and she needs help to finish them and preserve them for future generations.

This is a side of Afeni Shakur-Davis that is rarely seen or heard. She did the phone interview from her home and she was comfortable. She was in her element and it is obvious that she is most comfortable at home.

The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation and Center for the Arts are not only part of hip hop’s Legacy and the Legacy of Tupac Shakur but they will become apart of Afeni Shakur-Davis’ Legacy as well. And it is time for everyone to step up and help her finish what she and the family have started.

Tupac touched the entire world, not only as a hip hop artist or a rap lyricist but as a person who recognized the wrongs in the world and he was not afraid to point them out; and the entire world should be interested in seeing the Center for the Arts finished and the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation flourish.

The children are depending on all of us to help finish this project and support it so the magnificent work they do can not only go on, but can grow and produce the leaders of tomorrow. An investment in TASF or The Center for the Arts is an investment in our future.

We hope you enjoy this interview with Hip Hop’s most famous MOMMA, Afeni Shakur-Davis. But most of all we hope and pray that you will answer Afeni’s plea for help and respond with any donation you can afford to the Center for the Arts, so it can be finished.
