The life of Tupac Shakur will soon makes its way onto the small screen thanks to a television mini-series created by friend of the rapper and producer/filmmaker Quincy Jones III.
Jones revealed that the mini-series will include six parts with each part focusing on a certain aspect of the late rappers life. One part of the mini-series will take a look at Tupac’s relationship with fellow rapper Notorious B.I.G.
“If you look at Tupac’s life, he was a politician, he was musician, and then he was a guy who empowered women,” Jones explained to XXL Magazine. “We’re gonna do a six-part series documenting six different areas of his life.”
Since Jones was able to bring on Tupac’s mother Afeni Shakur for the project, the mini-series will likely include more in-depth information about the rapper’s personal life.
“It’s a real blessing because for the first time we’ll have access to the family, information and items that only she would have,” said Jones. “There’s a lot of things that he left behind like notebooks, audio tapes of his meetings, and all kinds of stuff so it’ll be a totally different look of Tupac because we actually have that access now.”
Jones did not reveal what television network will be picking up the series and instead stated that he didn’t want to share that particular news until it was locked in. Prior to working on the Tupac mini-series, Jones had previously worked on the Tupac Shakur: Thug Angel documentaries.
