Based on the amazing All Eyez on Me movie quotes that I’ve seen so far, I think the Tupac bio is going to be crazy good! All Eyez on Me is an upcoming biopic, action-drama movie, that is based on the life of rapper/record producer, Tupac Shakur. The movie is set to hit theaters on June 16, 2017, on what would have been Tupac’s 46th birthday. Even if you’re not really into rap music, Tupac’s story is still an interesting one to watch unfold on the big screen. Maybe it’s the fact that his murder hasn’t been solved yet since his shooting back in 1996. Mysteries like that always draw us in. Here are some amazing quotes from the movie.

I have not seen this movie. But looks like there are some famous dialogue from this movie. I will surely catch this one on the next movie night!
I haven’t seen this movie but I am familiar with Tupac, my ex husband was a big fan. I love all of the quotes, I will give this a watch if I ever get the time!
Tupac and Notorious B.I.G were talented artists and while it saddens me that their lives were cut so early, I am fascinated by why they were killed. I am looking forward to the biopic !
Very interesting, I am not really hat familiar with these artists but i will have to go and check these out.
“We got a big platform man. Use that platform to make change.” is my favorite quote. As a blogger, I want to make a difference (for the good). ps: really looking forward to seeing All Eyez on Me!
THIS IS WHY I LOVE TUPAC. Also the second quote is amazing and eye opening — you have to look at the bigger picture to actually see yourself rather than looking down your feet.
I know so little about Tupac. I honestly did not even read much about him but each time I get to read something such as this, I am always left in awe. I believe he has depth and a greater sense of purpose.
I really like the last quote about hate and becoming just like the people that we hate. And I never knew that Jada knew Tupac. I did know he stared in that one movie by Singleton. And I knew he rapped but not much more to be honest. Interesting article.
I am dying to watch this movie and can not wait for its release in the uk. I love all these quotes, hard go pick a favourite.
