Tupac: Dead And Loving It

Hey guys, it's Donnie...There seems to be a never ending string of jokes to be made concerning the plethora of albums and whatnot that have been released since the unfortunate death of Tupac. He has formed a virtual post-mortem media empire. Well, the hits just keep on coming, because in addition to the countless albums and the recent documentary, we can now add screenwriter to the list of Tupac's posthumous accolades.

That's right, Insomnia Media Group just purchased the rights to a screenplay written by the infamous rapper way way back in 1995, a film he had intended as a star vehicle for himself. Live 2 Tell (a sequel to Cradle 2 the Grave perhaps?) tells the story of a young scrapper who builds up a drug empire, only to turn his life around at the end.

Not entirely original at this point, as it sounds very reminiscent of Hustle and Flow, Never Die Alone, (criminally underrated film) the upcoming Get Rich Or Die Tryin. That doesn't mean it won't be good though. I'm a fan of all of those films, so I guess we'll just have to see if Tupac is as good a dead writer as he is a dead rapper...
