Anyone who has seen Juice or Poetic Justice will arguably say that Tupac was one of the few rappers who cultivated a memorable career on film.
In his final film, Gang Related, the rapper took on what might have been his most drastic transformation on film and a potential sign of wight may have come. Shakur, alongside James Belushi, played Jake Rodriguez, a corrupt cop who unwittingly gunned down an undercover DEA agent.
The film, which was released in 1997, ended filming on August 31, 1996. The clip appeared on the Instagram last Friday to commemorate the 22nd anniversary day it wrapped filming
The clip depicts the late rapper getting into character.
By the looks of the clip, Tupac was very hands-on and proactive with how Rodriguez was depicted. In addition, he also is shown being humorous around the set and keeping smiling abound. The film wrapped filming on August 31, 1996, two weeks before Shakur’s death after a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas.
