‘All Eyez on Me’ star on the movie that offers a Tupac ‘you can’t see anywhere else’

Tupac is polarizing. To some, the rapper-turned-actor was a mother-loving prophet and poet whose life was cut short. To others, he was a hardcore gangster whose chosen lifestyle, replete with guns, drugs and sexual assault allegations, dictated that death by drive-by shooting at 25 was probable.

But to Demetrius Shipp Jr., who plays Tupac Shakur in the biopic “All Eyez on Me” — due in theaters on June 16, what would’ve been the rapper’s 46th birthday — he was just a product of his environment, complex and complicated like everyone else.

“They’ll judge you by what you do, but they never know what you had to choose from,” Shipp said. “Like [producer] L.T. Hutton says, ‘The objective of this movie is to show you how he ended up in the car that night.’”
