Soulja Boy is taking his recent Tupac Shakur obsession a step further. As previously reported, SB is planning to channel his inner Pac by starring in a remake of the classic film Juice, to accompany his mixtape of the same name. Now, he shares that he’s also considering playing the role of the slain rap star in an upcoming biopic.
SB said that the idea was pitched by his talent agency. “I got an e-mail from William Morris Agency—that’s my agency that I’m with—they reached out to me to play the part. I’m just still thinking about it now,” he told MTV News. “Even with the whole Juice movie, I’m playing a part that Tupac played, but I’m actually not playing ‘Pac. When it comes to this, I’m actually gonna be playin’ ‘Pac, so I’m really still just thinkin’ about it. But I’m just honored that they would reach out to me and ask me anyway.”
For now, the young rapper is keeping busy in the studio where he will reportedly be working with Drake.
