According to Lionsgate and Morgan Creek Entertainment, the biopic will make its debut on June 16, 2017, on what would have been the late rapper's 46th birthday.

Plot Summary

"All Eyez on Me" chronicles the life and legacy of Tupac Shakur aka 2Pac, including his rise to superstardom as a hip hop artist and actor, as well as his imprisonment and prolific, controversial time at Death Row Records, where he was steeped in the East Coast/West Coast rap war.

The title of the movie comes from his hit 1996 fourth studio album by the same name. Shakur was shot multiple times on September 7, 1996 in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas, and died six days later.
