(AllHipHop News) Tupac Shakur’s turn as the subject of a biopic is finally underway, and like any Hip Hop based movie, there will be just as much interest in the accompanying soundtrack as the film itself.
AllHipHop.com was able to connect with one of the producers of the upcoming John Singleton directed motion picture. In an exclusive interview, L.T. Hutton of Program Pictures, revealed some details about what listeners can expect from the movie’s album.
“A lot of people loved Pac, had a lot of compassion and respect for him, and never got a chance to really rock with him. So it’s a tribute album based on the film,” said Hutton. “The soundtrack just won’t be a lot of remixes and old songs. Pac in fact won’t be on there, but songs that other artists get to make will.”
Even though 2Pac will not be featured on the project, Hutton insists other big name performers will contribute songs as well as acts that were closely associated with the late Hip Hop legend.
“I got some submissions the other day,” he added. “I got so many songs, it will be like the double album All Eyez On Me. It will be songs from mainstream, marquee artists along with a few other people. Of course, you’ll have Outlawz songs. There’s a Thug Life song. It’s going to be a huge tribute album. It’s going to be fantastic.”
During the Q&A Hutton also discussed other aspects of the movie including what parts of Pac’s life the filmmakers are focusing on, how involved in the process were Afeni Shakur and Dr. Dre, and how the Pac-Biggie situation will be covered.
