For years there have been many rumors as well as many attempts by television networks to depict the biopic story of West Coast rapper and legend, the late Tupac Shakur. Back in February film director John Singleton inked a deal with Morgan Creek Productions that would make him the visionary in charge of bringing Tupac’s life and works to the big screen. Production is slated to begin in June or July of this year. Sounds great huh? Well..

It looks like movie goers and Hip hop enthusiast will have their pick of films touting West Coast rap legends, due to the fact that Universal Pictures has green-lighted a biopic story on Hip Hop’s first gangsta rap group, N.W.A. to be directed by F. Gary Gray. Both films will begin production around the same time, and will be expected to be released within months of one another. Hopefully, with the long lasting impact and legacy of both N.W.A and Tupac, it won’t become a battle ‘Royale’ at the box office for dominance, and there’s more than enough Cali love to go around for all movie patrons!

Which one would you pay to see….if not both?? Share your thoughts.
