Keyshia Cole is headed for the big screen!
Cole landed a role in the upcoming All Eyez on Me Tupac biopic, she announced via Instagram over the weekend.
The Bay Area native is a longtime fan of Pac, who became a major West Coast rap force despite being born on the East Coast. In 2009, Cole dropped a Pac collaboration called “Playa Cardz Right.”
Benny Boom, the R&B singer’s go-to director, is helming All Eyez on Me. Production on the film reportedly began this month in Atlanta, with Shakur lookalike and first-time actor Demetrius Shipp Jr. playing the slain rap figure. The film will also feature Hill Harper.
