A new documentary about Tupac Shakur is being directed by Steve McQueen.
The Shakur estate are fully supporting the production of the feature length documentary. Interestingly, Interscope Records and UMG have agreed to support the film as well, meaning that the legendary rapper’s full musical works should be available for use in the making of the film.
McQueen, who has directed Hunger, Shame and 12 Years A Slave, said: "I am extremely moved and excited to be exploring the life and times of this legendary artist.
"I attended NYU film school in 1993 and can remember the unfolding hip hop world and mine overlapping with Tupac’s through a mutual friend in a small way. Few, if any, shined brighter than Tupac Shakur. I look forward to working closely with his family to tell the unvarnished story of this talented man.”
The documentary does not yet have a release date, but it is expected to be released after the upcoming Tupac biopic, All Eyez On Me, in cinemas next month.
