According to Jermaine 'Huggy' Hopkins, Tupac Shakur often walked off the set during filming. As a prank, Hopkins told Shakur that he was being fired from the film. When Shakur found out that it was not true, he started a physical altercation with Hopkins.
Daryl Mitchell, Donald Faison, Anthony 'Treach' Criss, and Money-B are among the people who auditioned for the role of Bishop. Tupac Shakur had accompanied Money-B to the audition and asked to read. Shakur nailed the role when he threw a chair during his audition. Shakur helped Criss get a cameo as a member of Radames' gang.
Omar Epps stated in an interview that Tupac wanted to stay in character so much that he would aggressively ask cast and crew to call him "Bishop" insteaed of Tupac on set.
Tocadisco's song "Nobody (Likes The Records That I Play)" is based on a sample (spoken by Queen Latifah) from this film.

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

In the original filmed ending, Bishop lets go of Q's hand, deciding that he would rather fall to his death than go to jail. This was supposed to be a reference to an earlier scene in which Bishop watches the ending of White Heat (1949) and declares that he wants to die in the same way. Test audiences did not like this ending and Paramount executives demanded it to be changed.
In the scene in which Bishop kills Radames, Vincent Laresca was accidentally shot in the neck with a blank. The powder burn is visible in the scene.
