(Radio.com) The first trailer for the Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez on Me, has been released. The film was directed by famed video director Benny Boom, and featuring other figures from the 90s rap scene.

Demetrius Shipp, Jr. will play Tupac and told XXL Magazine that he feels a kinship with the late rap pioneer. "I have to say that I'm a very passionate person, a person that's very driven on integrity and my beliefs," Shipp said. "I believe there's definitely a similarity there. Just getting into the character, I fell in love with who he was. It was common things that were brought together with me and him, our childhood. It was a crazy thing to be able to do it."

The trailer features powerful voiceover by Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead), who plays Tupac's mother Afeni Shakur, the activist who passed away earlier this year. Watch the trailer here.
