Say What?! Guess What Rapper Says He Was Supposed To Play Tupac In ‘All Eyez On Me’
by ClassicOne Rumors.
(AllHipHop Rumors) Young Buck is doing a lot to promote his ’10 Toes Down’ album!
We see you Buck! LOL.
Young Buck recently sat down with DJ Smallz to talk about Tupac’s legacy and his recent controversial biopic. Buck said that although there have been a lot of mixed reviews on ‘All Eyez On Me’, he actually liked the film, and he looks for the positive in a lot of situations.
Buck went on to reveal a secret. According to Buck, he was supposed to play Tupac in the movie. Say WHATTTTTT?! He says he was told he was basically given the part of the movie without even having to audition for the movie until “Pac” (Demetrius Shipp Jr.) came along.
“People don’t know this, but I was supposed to play Pac. I was supposed to play Tupac Shakur. I didn’t get as far as going and reading the scripts or things of that nature. I was actually lined up or one of those guys considered to play Tupac,” said Young Buck.
Young Buck says we need to check Shipp’s birth certificate because the actor looks and acts so much like Tupac.
Buck feels like ‘All Eyez On Me’ is right beneath ‘Straight Outta Compton’ when ranking great Hip Hop biopics. He argues that the vast majority of the characters of ‘Straight Outta Compton’ are still alive, and he credits that for making up the difference in the quality of the films also.
Could you picture Young Buck playing Pac?!
