In 1994, Tupac Shakur was interviewed by Entertainment Weekly’s Benjamin Svetkey and discussed his ideas on life, death, success, trouble with the law and the media. That same interview of nearly two decades ago has now resurfaced in a new form as PBS Digital Studios animated that encounter in their latest Blank On Blank segment.

After years of rumors about this movie coming to life it has finally been confirmed that a Tupac Shakur biopic will begin production in 2014 through Morgan Creek Productions and Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films. For a long time we've heard about different directors and companies being connected to the film, but now with a $45 million budget being in place (According to Deadline) things finally look to be in motion. There haven't been many details release because I don't think they gotten that far in the process yet, but it's said that Tupac's mother is on board as a producer and all of his music catalog is available for use.
I'm looking forward to seeing who they cast as Pac and really hope that John Singleton gets on board as the director. We make sure to keep you guys posted as details come about.
If you were unaware, there is currently a movie being made about the legendary Tupac Shakur by Morgan Creek Productions. And it had hit a roadblock when the film needed a rewrite, but the news this weekend from Deadline is that Michael Starrbury, screenwriter for the buzzing The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete to premiere at Sundance this year, has been brought on for said rewrite. Good news that the Tupac biopic is closer to the big screen!
Holograms have been around for centuries, but recently they have been popping up everywhere. They've even been getting so realistic... its scary.
Tupac's hologram rapped at coachella and Japan, of course, has had a hologram anime character name Hatsune performing concerts for years. However, our late president, Ronald Reagan's hologram was scheduled to make an appearance at the Republican National Convention tonight, but the figure scared his creators too much that the figure has been pulled.
"Bitch bad, woman good/Lady better, they misunderstood."
Raps been known for exploiting women, but Lupe Fiasco has gone against the grain in his new single "Bitch Bad." Lyrically unimpressive, Lupe's new single takes a step in the right direction but falls short.
Is exploiting women what sells and being kind to women boring?
Though degrading at times, Rap lyrics are to be taken with a grain of salt. Hyperbolic lyrics are what sells but should only be seen as an "artistic expression", not a lifestyle.
The Atlantic explores the history of the portayal of women from Tupac's epic "Brenda's Got a Baby" to Lupe's "Bitch Bad" in their most recent article.
From Tupac to Biggie Smalls, See who made the cut! Mynority Classics with the illustration talent, Sayori Wada, turn Hip Hop legends into a iconically sketched deck of playing cards. These are definitely much greater than Baseball cards.
Now if only we can get a country to put these guys on the dollar bill...
