Tupac

His role as the gun-blazing, power-crazed Bishop in 1992’s Juice made America take notice of this rapper with immense acting chops (he’d studied the craft in high school). Not just the loose cannon (1996’s Above the Rim), Tupac also showed emotional depth/introspection (1993’s Poetic Justice) and a mature intensity (1997’s Gang Related and Gridlock’d).
