John Singleton Slammed Tupac Biopic 2017 In Review


John Singleton Slammed Tupac Biopic was a top 17 story of June 2017: (Radio.com) John Singleton is not a fan of the new Tupac Shakur movie, "All Eyez On Me." The director was in Atlanta's V-103 studios earlier this week (June 22) to promote his new television series "Snowfall."

His temperature spiked when the subject turned to biopic, or as the Academy Award-nominated director deemed it, "the debacle." "Are you displeased because of the final product, or that you didn't get to do it?" asked Big Tigger, on The Ryan Cameron Morning Show with Wanda Smith.

"A little bit of both," replied Singleton, who was once part of the project that was released last week under the direction of lauded music video lensman, Benny Boom.

"They just made a movie. They didn't think of it as a cultural event. They didn't think of it in terms of something that affected our generation. They see a rap star," he continued. "But dude was much more than a rap star. So that's why I'm really upset." Read more here.
