Believe it or not, “Menace II Society” was released over twenty years ago. The film launched the careers of Albert and Allen Hughes (“From Hell”, “Book of Eli”), who made the film when they were just twenty years old. While the film proved to be a critical and commercial hit at the time, the production was not without its problems. Tupac Shakur was originally supposed to play a role in the film but was fired by Allen Hughes, apparently because Tupac was causing problems on the set. The firing lead to Tupac and Allen Hughes actually coming to blows and Tupac wound up being found guilty for assault and battery, as a result.The stars of “Menace II Society,” actors Tyrin Turner and Larenz Tate, recently dropped by MTV’s “RapFix Live” to celebrate the film’s 20th anniversary and they talked about Tupac’s brief involvement with the film. »
