Tupac Shakur: Thug Angel
- 1h 32min
See production, box office, & company info
In the $3 billion industry of hip-hop music, no one has touched as many lives with a microphone as Tupac Shakur. In this never-before-seen footage, see Tupac at seventeen, a young man at the edge of his destiny, speaking out about injustice on the streets of Oakland. See him at the brink of his stardom, kickin' freestyles with Treach, Biggie and Grand Puba. See him at the shooting range, at home, at the highs and lows of his career, as a man constantly plagued by and provoking the media. —Ulf Kjell Gür
Good, but not that good.
Thug Angel is QD3's/Afeni/The Shakur Estate's attempt to turn Tupac's bad public image around and show you all the good things about him, hence, Thug Angel. What the media portrayed to you wasn't Tupac, he wasn't a gangsta, he wasn't a bad person. He loved the community, he loved kids, he even turned his car around driving to the airport because he heard about a little girl getting mauled by a dog on the radio and went to the hospital to offer his support, now that's being REAL. But.... other than that, Thug Angel fails as much as it succeeds. The young 17/18 year old Tupac interview is great, he's talking about changing the world, making it a better place, talking about giving women respect, once he even heard a guy call a woman the 'B word' as he says, but then the next interview he's high off weed and hennessy and eating pizza and cussing women, it's the total opposite of what he just said and often you will find the stories and messages contradicting themselves a lot. The interviews, especially Treach's camera/bedroom incident are HILARIOUS, this isn't as good as maybe Thug Immortal, but still as Afeni milks Tupac for all he's worth, they still have about 24 hours of footage left to milk out, so expect a few more videos to come.
