Biopic to pay hommage to the late west coast rapper.

Tupac Shakur will feature in the N.W.A biopic, the latest addition to the film’s supporting characters which already include versions of Snoop Dogg, Warren G and Suge Knight.

The actor Marc Rose, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the late rapper, will play Shakur in the film. Earlier this week, Ice Cube shared an old photo of Shakur on what would have been the rapper’s 44th birthday and confirmed they were shooting a scene involving him. The studio then confirmed Rose as the actor for the part. [Via Entertainment Weekly]

Last week, MC Ren complained about being left out of the trailers for the movie.
