Demetrius Shipp, the rising star employed to portray Tupac in Benny Boom‘s ‘All Eyez on Me’ can be found on the cover of ‘Rolling Out’ magazine this month.
Set for release on June 30th, the movie tells one side of the Tupac story with help from the writers Jeremy Haft and Danny Gonzalez and will introduce Shipp to the millions expected to fly into theatres to catch it when it drops.
‘Eyez’ tells the true and untold story of prolific rapper, actor, poet and activist Tupac Shakur. The film follows Shakur from his early days in New York City to his evolution into being one of the world’s most recognized and influential voices before his untimely death at the age of 25. Against all odds, Shakur’s raw talent, powerful lyrics and revolutionary mind-set propelled him into becoming a cultural icon whose legacy continues to grow long after his passing.
