Tupac Biopic Involved in Lawsuit

A production company has filed a lawsuit against Amaru Entertainment – Tupac Shakur’s mother’s business – claiming they didn’t sell them the life rights of the late rapper for a biopic, as promised.

Billboard reports that Morgan Creek has been in negotiations with Amaru since November and even had a written contract in place. But the company, run by Pac’s mother Afeni Shakur, denied the existence of any deal.

Although Pac had several documentaries released about his life there is yet to be a full-lenghth motion picture. Last month the life of Pac’s rival Biggie Smalls hit the silver screen and Notorious suffered its own controversy. Big’s former flame Lil’ Kim went on a media tour publicly condemning the portrayal of her character in the flick. – Elan Mancini

    I hope an agreement of terms is met. I want to see a Pac movie and I think its important for the younger generation to understand what Pac really was about, his family background, and upbringing and of course his music.

    SHIT….BOUT TIME THEY STARTED PUTTING A PAC BIOPIC TOGTHER. TO BE HONEST THIS SHOULD HAVE CAME WWAAAYYYY BEFORE “NOTORIOUS”. REAL TALK, PAC HAS HAD WAY MORE INFLUENCE IN THE GAME, WETHER IT BE MUSIC OR LIFE IN GENERAL MORE SO THAN BIGGIE EVER WILL.

    I doubt it’ll have more success than Notorious. Biggie was loved by so many while pac burned alot of bridges on his conquest to who knows what.

    • BirDMan

      Thats something that will always be argued, Pacs better then Biggie or vice versa, and people who think that way are automatically going to like on more than the other. Its not the people who may have been fucked over whos going to go see the movie, its the fans. And for Notorious, they chould have taken more time, it seemed like it was rushed from day one to get it out asap.

    All yall sound like some bitches(Mika,Devon&gkid12345). And no disrespect to biggie but his movie was wack (thanks to puffy)& he was nowhere near being a better rapper or a bigger star than pac. Only thing I do agree about is putting all these wacktastic ass rappers on all these songs with him….only niggaz that should be on those songs is the outlawz cuz nipsey hustle sound like he straight outta low cash & should be signed to sav-a-lot records

    Tupac’s legacy is deeper than rap (no William Leonard Roberts).

    Not a fan, just a realist.
