(TIML NEWS) Tupac Shakur was a passionate artist. 20 years after his passing, fans are still as passionate about his lyrics, his life and preserving his legacy. During the production of the Benny Boom-directed All Eyez On Me film, many wondered why prolific filmmaker John Singleton wasn’t the one to helm the project. Singleton has gone on to critique the film, leaving fans to wonder what he would’ve done had he created a Tupac biopic.
Over the weekend, rapper and producer Dazz Dillinger posted a copy of Singleton’s revised script to Instagram which featured a prison gang rape scene.
In the highlighted section above, Tupac is in the prison library with other inmates when two guards tell the others to leave. Once the room is clear, about six other men enter the room with one licking his lips and eyeing Tupac. While the revised script does not show the actual scene, Singleton writes of Tupac fighting off the men and his screams being heard from the guards as they leave the room.
The vivid imagery didn’t sit well with fans who viewed the unconfirmed account as disrespectful. Singleton soon got wind that his script was made public, and quickly defended it by saying Tupac’s mother was involved in the writing process.
