Originally dubbed Tupac, the film All Eyez on Me has officially revealed its first teaser trailer. Demetrius Shipp, Jr., whose father worked with Shakur on the album The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory, will take on the role of the revolutionary rapper in the upcoming film. Covering the life of Shakur up until his untimely death in Las Vegas in 1996, 2Pac fanatics can look forward to the raw and uncut nature of Pac along with additional outlets of his impact such as acting and societal issues.
