Scarface Slams ‘All Eyez On Me’: ‘I Love Pac to Death But Let That Man Rest’
The Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me may have done well at the theater but the movie has had its fair share of critics, including some of hip-hop’s biggest names. After the film received criticism from Jada Pinkett Smith and 50 Cent, harsh words from rapper Scarface have surfaced.
During a May Q&A at the Classic Hip-Hop Lives concert in Chicago, the Houston rapper encouraged told members he wasn't into biopics that don't include perspective from the person being showcased.
“If a motherf---er put an album out on me when I’m dead, don't buy that s---,” he said. “If motherf---ers try to shoot a movie on me and I’m dead, don’t go see that s---. Let me rest. I love Pac to death, but let that man rest.”
Originally projected to gross $17 to $20 million during its opening weekend, All Eyez On Me ended up making $26.4 million. But while the film was a hit at the box office, the reviews haven’t been as good. The film currently has a 24 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Following the movie’s release, Pinkett Smith, who had a relationship with Pac, said the film was inaccurate. “Forgive me… my relationship to Pac is too precious to me for the scenes in All Eyez On Me to stand as truth,” she tweeted.
