Tupac Movie About His Last Week Alive Is on the Way
Since his death almost 20 years ago, there has been much talk surrounding a Tupac Shakur biopic, which details the life and legacy of the slain rapper. While there have been a host of documentaries and well-produced news packages, there's nothing like a full-length film to tell the story of Pac’s life.
Gobi Rahimi, who directed and produced videos for 2pac and Deathrow in the '90s, is creating a biopic centered around 2Pac’s last week alive. Rahimi recently launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for the film. He’s seeking $500,000 to fund the movie, which is currently titled 7dayz.
Check out how Rahimi, who was beside Pac on his death bed in 1996, had to say about the inspiration behind the film:
“I was waiting for Tupac at Club 662 in Las Vegas after the Mike Tyson fight on September 7, 1996. Soon after, I was informed by rapper Nate Dogg that Tupac and Suge Knight had been shot and taken to University Hospital. I immediately rushed there to be by Tupac’s side. This was the first of an emotional seven days that I sat guard over Tupac, who was in an induced coma, riding the line between life and death. 7Dayz is the story of my experience at the hospital amidst death threats, undercover FBI informants and an uncooperative police department.”
Hopefully, by the 20th anniversary of Tupac's death, fans will finally get to see at least one biopic about his life.
