Quotes

Shock-G: All of the Biggie versus Pac heads... First of all, Biggie's gonna win hands down if you're talking flow. Strictly from a rhythm standpoint, Biggie is a swinger. He swings like a horn player over jazz. "B-I, G-P-O, P-P-A, no-in-fo, for-the, D-E-A". He put more emphasis on the "uh-UH, uh-UH-uh..." He just spelling his name.

Information, not merely adoration!
14 January 2004 | by (Arcadia, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

I make it a point to see everything produced about Tupac. This film is far better than "Resurrection" or any of the other bios I've seen. For one thing, it correctly points out that whatever commitment Afeni Shakur showed to The Movement, she was still a lousy mother. It contains great in-depth interviews with Shock-G and others close to Tupac; and these detail his faults as well as his assets, portraying him as the brilliant, artistic, complex, individual he really was, not as a cardboard idol. If you want concert clips, this is not your flick. But if you want interviews with Tupac and his friends that you won't see elsewhere, check it out.
