Official! Everything I put my name on has to rise to that level…. where I’m from if you ain’t “official” you ain’t nothing. This too applies to storytelling and especially in the way of movies and TV which reach a wide audience. It’s hard to tell certain truths when folks are used to seeing lies and being “programmed” all their lives. Just know I stand by truths when I’m telling a story and I’ve always made a commitment to keep it real. Anything else is beneath me. @snowfallfx
My blogger buddy The Jasmine Brand spilled some tea about the Tupac movie coming out this weekend, All Eyez on Me! She said new details have surfaced as to why John Singleton is not producing All Eyez On Me, the film about the late rapper Tupac. The film’s producer LT Hutton says that ultimately they had creative differences with Singleton. In fact, Hutton says that Singleton wanted to add a scene where Pac got raped in prison. He also says that Singleton wanted to add an anal scene as well. Hutton explains,
The raped in jail stuff – yeah, he wanted to put that in there….He wanted to start the movie off: Tupac goes in the studio – one guys in the studio, he’s getting head….Tupac is with the other girl and these girls are white and Tupac tries to give her anal.
Now first of all anal wasn’t even around at that type of time — it wasn’t cool yet.
Continuing with how Singleton wanted to do the scene, he adds,
The girl denies him [Tupac]. He kicks her out. And he tells the white girls to Go home to tell your dad you got f*cked by a n*gga today. End scene.
What movie is that bro?
Hutton also hints that Singleton was fired from the project. See the clips below.
