Tupac Shakur 'Isn't Black Leader' in New Teaser Trailer of 'All Eyez on Me'


The newly-released video shows the iconic rapper criticizing then Vice President Dan Quail during his concert, saying, 'Cops kill innocent black folk every day and Quail's comin' after me?'
In honor of the 20th anniversary of Tupac Shakur's death, Morgan Creek and Open Road Films have released a new teaser trailer of "All Eyez on Me". The ominous video features the iconic rapper, portrayed by Demetrius Shipp Jr., criticizing then Vice President Dan Quail during his concert.

"How many y'all heard about what the Vice President said about me?" he asks the crowd. "Cops kill innocent black folk every day and Quail's comin' after me?" The next scenes show him getting roughed up by cops, firing guns and having an intense conversation with his mother Afeni (Danai Guira). "Like all black leaders, you have a bullseye on your back," she warns. He spits back, "I ain't no black leader."

One scene shows him telling his rival Notorious B.I.G. (Jamal Woolard), "Loyalty is everything." There is also a glimpse of Dominic L. Santana's Suge Knight, the guy who is long suspected of being involved in Tupac's murder.



Directed by veteran music video helmer Benny Boom, "All Eyez on Me" also stars Stefon Washington as P. Diddy, Katerina Graham as Jada Pinkett Smith, Harold House Moore as Dr. Dre and Khadija Copeland as Queen Latifah. Annie Ilonzeh, John West Jr., Lauren Cohan, Jamie Hector and Josh Ventura are among the supporting actors. The biopic has yet to set a release date.
