A New Tupac Movie About His Final Days Is In The Works Print

It seems like only a month ago that John Singleton quit one Tupac biopic while promising to work on a different, “more respectful” project. There’s now word of another film, 7 Dayz, from director and Pac confidant Gobi M. Rahimi. Unlike the other projects, this film would focus on the seven days Rahimi spent with Shakur while the rapper was comatose before passing.

Rahimi – who helmed the music videos for “I Ain’t Mad at Cha” and “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted,” among others – wants to raise $300,000 to prevent his movie, 7 Dayz, “from becoming another watered down Hollywood film,” according to the project’s IndieGogo page. The feature film will also incorporate rare, actual footage of the rapper.

Rahimi, who claims to have penned a letter for Shakur in which he fired Suge Knight, wrote on the website that since he bore witness to the rapper’s final days, he owed it to Tupac and the world to tell the story now, nearly two decades after the rapper’s death.

As Rahimi says in the video: “This isn’t a documentary. It’s not a hologram and it’s not a repurposed album. This is my experience; my story.” This is an interesting take, and I’m all for any excuse to watch unreleased Pac footage. I just hope that letter to Knight doesn’t reignite that “Suge shot me” theory.

You can support the project through Rahimi’s Indiegogo page.
