Tupac will be played by actor Marcc Rose in the upcoming N.W.A movie Straight Outta Compton, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Ice Cube posted a picture on Instagram for the late rapper’s birthday Tuesday (June 16) that said Tupac will be a character in the upcoming film.

Along with Tupac, Ice Cube, Eazy E, Dr. Dre, DJ Yella, MC Ren, Suge Knight, Chuck D, and Snoop Dogg will all be portrayed in the movie.

MC Ren took to Twitter last week to express his frustrations with the movie’s promotion, which focuses on only three of the group’s members.

Straight Outta Compton is scheduled for an August 14 release date.
