Scarface Says ‘All Eyez on Me’ Is Not a Real Tupac Shakur Movie
Well, the verdict is in, and it turns out there are tons of people who aren't feeling the Tupac Shakur biopic, All Eyez on Me. One of those folks is 'Pac's friend and collaborator Scarface, who spoke out against the film at Chicago's Classic Hip Hop Lives event this past weekend. See what he's got to say in the video below.
According to the Houston rap legend, the new Benny Boom-directed flick is invalid because it's missing key figures from 'Pac's life, including MC Breed and West Coast rappers like Spice 1, Richie Rich, The D.O.C. and a few others.
"If MC Breed not in that movie, then it ain’t no real ‘Pac movie. If the D.O.C. wasn’t mentioned in that movie, it’s not a real ‘Pac movie. If that shit wasn’t sanctioned by the people that grew up with ‘Pac … I don’t know, bro,” the Geto Boys member said.
Elsewhere in the clip, we can see Scarface, who collaborated with 'Pac on his song "Smile" 20 years ago, questioning the intentions of the film by asking who, exactly, is profitting from it.
“It ain’t feeding his momma, his momma gone,” he said. “It ain’t feeding his kids, he ain’t got none. Who getting the money?”
Scarface went on to request that films like All Eyez on Me and posthumously released 'Pac albums stop being released, requesting that his fans don't support art bearing his likeness and artistic contributions after his own death.
“If a muthafucka put an album out on me when I’m dead, don’t buy that shit," Face said. "When a muthafucka tries to shoot a movie on me when I’m dead, don’t go see that shit. Let me rest, man. I love ‘Pac to death man but let that man rest.”
All Eyez on Me earned $3 million when it premiered in some theaters last Thursday.
