2Pac Freestyles Over Snoop Dogg’s “Gz and Hustlaz” in Rare Footage
Though he was tragically killed 20 years ago, 2Pac's legacy lives on thanks to an extensive library of unreleased music and clips. Frequent 'Pac collaborator Big Syke unearthed footage of a studio session and a freestyle cypher featuring Warren G, Syke and Richie Rich flowing over Snoop Dogg's "Gz and Hustlas." The clip shows the late MC in his element, having fun and flashing his otherworldly talent as he bodies the classic G Funk instrumental.
With the success of Straight Outta Compton in box offices, rumored hip-hop biopics have been popping up all over the place. Unsurprisingly, a 2Pac flick has been in the works and looks like it's finally going to get made. All Eyez On Me began production in Dec. 2015 after a multimillion dollar lawsuit and several changes at the director position. Famed director John Singleton left the project in 2015 after claiming that, “the people involved aren’t really respectful of the legacy of 2Pac.” Benny Boom was later announced as director. ‘Pac’s mother, Afeni Shakur, is serving as Executive Producer.
In January, actor Keith Robinson joined a cast that includes Dominic L. Santana has been casted as Suge Knight, Demetrius Shipp Jr. will play Tupac, Danai Gurira will star as Afeni Shakur and Kat Graham is set to play Jada Pinkett Smith. Jamal Woodward, who played The Notorious B.I.G. in Notorious, will once again play Biggie in All Eyez On Me.
The film does not have a release date as of press time.
