Pac's Life

It looks like Tupac's biopic will finally go into production this year. One of the film's producers, Randall Emmett, recently revealed, "That project is being put together for a June start date ... The script is great and we're ready to make the movie and we're just prepping the logistics."

Pac's biopic will include his original songs, Emmett added. "Morgan Creek acquired all the music from the estate when they partnered with Tupac's mother... He really was, in my opinion, for sure, one of the greatest talents that ever lived in music and in hip hop.”    

As Pac's life gears up to come to the screen, check out a few more biopics made for music lovers.
