The stars of Tupac Shakur biopic ‘All Eyez on Me’ were in London on Tuesday for the film’s European premiere. A host of British hip-hop stars attended the event as well as renowned radio DJ Tim Westwood, who described Tupac as the ‘greatest of all time’.
The film follows Shakur breaking through into music and his climb to become a global star. ‘All Eyez on Me’ also explores his friendship with fellow rapper Notorious BIG, who he would later fall out with, imprisonment and his work with controversial music mogul Marion ‘Suge’ Knight.
Tupac is played by Demetrius Shipp Jr, who said about the rapper, “The world loves him, you know? He was real. He connected with the people. He was the voice of the people and he spoke to real issues all across the world and his music was just very relatable to all people really in general – it was not just hip-hop, black or white – just to people in general.”
