(AllHipHop News) Tupac Shakur is the central figure in All Eyez On Me, but there are a lot of other characters connected to the Hip Hop icon’s story that will be part of the biopic.
According to TMZ, two of those people have given their stamp of approval for the Benny Boom-directed motion picture.
AEOM producer L.T. Hutton reportedly reached out to Bad Boy founder Sean “Diddy” Combs and Death Row founder Marion “Suge” Knight.
Diddy apparently enjoyed the film and agreed to The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Who Shot Ya?” being part of the soundtrack.
Since Knight is currently incarcerated, he was not able to watch the movie.
However, the Compton representative supposedly heard a description and was supportive of his portrayal.
“I talk to Suge every day. This is not a one-sided story. 2Pac had multiple sides, and we would do this movie a disservice if we didn’t have all those sides. You’re going to see the full 360 circumference of Tupac,” Hutton told AllHipHop.com in 2014.
Dominic L. Santana appears as Suge Knight in Eyez, and Stefon Washington plays Diddy aka Puff Daddy.
Demetrius Shipp Jr. takes on the role of Tupac.
The cast also includes Danai Gurira (Afeni Shakur), Jamal Woolard (The Notorious B.I.G.), Kat Graham (Jada Pinkett), Annie Ilonzeh (Kidada Jones), and Jamie Hector (Mutulu Shakur).
All Eyez On Me is scheduled for release on June 16.
