The making of 2Pac‘s biopic has been marred with as much controversy as the late rapper’s life. From various actors and directors being attached to the project as well as the family seemingly not being on board at the onset of production, the project is finally done.

Actor Demetrius Shipp Jr. shared that landing the lead role of 2Pac has already changed his life.

“Still can’t believe what my life has become and is becoming. Not too long ago it was just struggle, stress and trying to figure it all out. Now I just wrapped up a feature film and I’m the star” began Demetrius in his Instagram caption.

“2015 threw every curveball possible in the midst of preparation to get this role. Thank God for giving me what I needed to keep going and blessing me with the role” he added.

According to Miss Info, the film, which is directed by Benny Boom will hit theatres in November following the 20th anniversary of Tupac’s death.

And that's a picture wrap. Still can't believe what my life has become and is becoming. Not too long ago it was just struggle, stress and trying to figure it all out. Now I just wrapped up a feature film and I'm the star,  and not just any movie, the life of Tupac, CRAZY. 2015 threw every curveball possible in the midst of preparation to get this role. Thank God for giving me what I needed to keep going and blessing me with the role. Thank you to all the crew and cast, man yall helped make this experience unforgettable  4real. I've made some life long friendships within this film and can't wait til we're all together again at the premiere. R.i.p to Tupac Shakur,  you're a Black Pioneer and a Hero to our people and culture. I hope my performance pays tribute and gives insight to your life and most of all "Spark the brain"
