Tupac: Resurrection movie trailer - starring Tupac Shakur. Directed by Lauren Lazin. Genre: Documentary
Platinum-Selling Beef earned critical and popular success by exploring the history and evolution of verbal warfare in Hip Hop. From Busy Bee and Kool Moe Dee to 50 Cent and Ja Rule, artists got more and more personal, and their attacks became less and less about the music. From the Wax to the Streets, Beef brought those underground and sometimes violent beefs to your living room. Beef II continues that tradition of thoughtful, unbiased and entertaining Hip Hop journalism by bringing the new beefs in the game as artists call out the real gangstas in hip hop. From labels and lawyers to managers and media. Beef II captures the battles that often rage behind the scenes in the music business. The increasing popularity, profitability and commercialization of rap music has irrevocably changed the tradition of battling within Hip Hop culture. The true Hip Hop battle is no longer a fight to prove one's skills, but a fight to survive in this Billion Dollar Hip Hop Industry. Beef II features interviews with 50 Cent, D12, Redman, Method Man, Canibus, Royce Da 5'9", KRS-One, Nelly, Ice Cube, Mack 10, Cypress Hill, DMX, K-Solo, Sticky Fingaz, Fredro Starr, Parrish Smith, Kool Moe Dee, Angie Martinez, DJ KaySlay, Big Daddy Kane, Davey D, Cold Crush BroTHERs, Marley Marl, Roxanne Shante, Kangol Kid, Kevin Powell, Afeni Shakur and exclusive archival footage of Eminem, LL Cool J, Westside Connection, cypress hill and others. Beef II is a must-own for any true fan or follower of Hip Hop!
Afeni Shakur, Tupac's mother, says she'll do everything she can to make sure all of the late rapper's unreleased music sees the light of day.
Celebrating the life of Tupac Shakur, Tupac: Resurrection explores Shakur s life viscerally and dramatically through his own words and music, as well as through vivid images of the world as he experienced it. The film carefully mines video archives to expose the brilliant storyteller that Shakur was during interviews and in personal conversations throughout his life. In his own words, Shakur powerfully takes viewers with him throughout the happiness and the sadness of his childhood, through the ups and downs of his professional career, through his romances and his life-altering mistakes, and finally, through the lessons he has learned. Not merely a commemoration of his life and artistry, Tupac: Resurrection explores honestly and openly Shakur s many complexities. It examines the artist s gifts, passions and conflicts, and unravels the mystique of his life by looking at those who influenced him early on.
An intimate portrait of a young man who rose from a life of adversity into a global icon who touched millions of lives, Tupac: Resurrection is the only film made in collaboration with Shakur s mother, former Black Panther Afeni Shakur. It is also the only film told entirely in his own words. Visually stunning, this inspirational life story features never-before-seen concert footage, private home movies and excerpts from Tupac s poetry and journals, all of which serve to create a very personal portrayal of a sensitive, passionate and often provocative artist who died before his time. In addition, the film features a soundtrack of Shakur s music, as well as all new music by The Notorious B.I.G., Eminem, Don McLean, Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Shakur himself, who currently ranks among the top 40 best-selling artists of all time, with more than 80 million records sold to date.
