Former Tupac Bodyguard Produces Film

The

person responsible for making sure no harm came Tupac

Shakur’s body up until his death is producing

a film in conjunction with Xenon films. Bodyguard Frank

Alexander, a former body builder and ex-marine, has recently

produced a film, "Before I Wake," to offer his

side of the never-ending saga of Pac.

The title

is taken from the popular children’s prayer, because,

according to Alexander, Tupac died before he was truly

awake. The documentary contains previously unreleased

footage of Tupac recording Until The End of Time, his

final recording and photos from Alexander’s personal

collection. Alexander and others also offer new theories

behind the unsolved murder of his former client.

Alexander

says he rotated shifts with four or his employed bodyguards

to protect the elusive rapper. "I was Tupac’s personal

bodyguard. It was a challenge. Tupac drove like he had

a brick at the bottom of his foot. He never shook me.

I accepted him, he accepted me and we became friends,"

he told EURweb.

Even though

Tupac died while being under his watch, Alexander doesn’t

feel as if the murder is on his hands. "No one can

judge me but God. Tupac’s mother Afeni doesn’t blame me

for Tupac’s death. I’m not trying to profit from Tupac’s

death,” he said.

As is the

norm with and Tupac-related material, fans and non-fans

are polarized on their opinions of “Before I Wake.”

“This piece puts all the puzzle pieces together of

what really happened the night of Tupac’s death, “

Carla from Chicago said of the film. But Ameer from Durham,

NC said, “Frank Alexander is an impostor who is using

his position as Pac’s ex body guard to make a quick buck.

Frank. He made no effort to make this a fair balanced

piece.”

Xenon Pictures

has produced a number of films about hip-hop including

Thug Immortal (Another Tupac documentary), Welcome to

Death Row and the Wu-Tang Classic Collection and The Eastsidaz:

You can Keep A Top Dogg Down.
