On what would have been Tupac Shakur’s 45th birthday, the highly anticipated biopic All Eyez on Me documenting his life and death releases its first official teaser trailer and it’s enough to give ardent and apathetic listeners alike chills on this Thursday morning.
The minute-long clip opens with a crowd chanting Pac’s name with a few voice over quotes from Danai Gurira of The Walking Dead, who plays his mother, Afeni.
“Son, this ain’t just about you.
Like all black men, you have a bullseye on your back,”
she says. And later,
“They are going to give you the tools that you need to destroy yourself,”
as an overhead shot of a money-filled briefcase is shown, likely being held by Suge Knight.
All Eyez on Me hits theaters on November 11th.
