This documentary film needs to be seen by everyone. Forget everything that's gone before just watch it. Filmed during his time at a correctional centre in 1995, just one year before he was killed, this is wholly new, unreleased material of Tupac at his most reflective - a completely new, unexpected version of the thug that crashed into the early nineties hip hop scene.
He wanted to change the world, though he believed the world might never change. His empathy for the downtrodden was tempered only by his abject cynicism. He was an icon, a scapegoat and a martyr. Tupac Amaru Shakur an idol to his admirers, an allegory to his detractors remains a controversial and misunderstood figure long after the shooting that ended his life in September of 1996.
In TUPAC VERSUS, director Ken Peters has assembled a compelling portrait of Tupac. With rare footage and still photos from Tupac's life and career; on-screen commentary from biographer Michael Eric Dyson ("Holler if you can hear me: Searching for Tupac"), artist Rah Pacasso, former manager Leila Steinberg, and instructor Arvand Elihu ("The Poetry and History of Tupac Shakur").
