There has been talk of a Tupac biopic for years, and just as it finally seemed that a film about the rapper's life would get off the ground, things have been delayed once again. According to TMZ, the upcoming film, All Eyez On Me, has hit a standstill as producer Daz Dillinger and BMG work out who holds the rights to "Ambitionz Az A Ridah," one of the rapper's definitive songs that is featured prominently throughout the film. Daz is not only a writer on the original track, but is directly involved in the making of the movie.
While the report states that the film has been bumped from a September release date to November, Daz has refuted the claims, responding in a video post on Instagram. “Just seeing that TMZ shit,” he says. "Ain’t nothing derailed about that Tupac All Eyez on Me movie."
You can watch Daz's response, as well as the movie trailer below.
