“To play 2Pac, to do a movie on 2Pac, we as the fan or the consumer or the moviegoer watching it, you looking for any flaw. I’m gonna tell you that homie that did it, is really, he’s murking it. Shout-out to Met, Demetrius. He killed it. When the movie first came on, it’s not Pac per se, himself. So you’re a little critical. You’re like, ‘Let me see.’ And I’m talking about 10 minutes in, it switch. Then by the time the movie ends, you forgot you weren’t watching Pac. That’s how much he dug into that role. They did a really good job with that movie.”
