The New “All Eyez On Me” Trailer Is Here


The kings of hip-hop grace the screen

This year, we've got quite the selection of biopics coming our way. None has been as anticipated as All Eyez On Me, the untold story of Tupac Shakur, starring Demetrius Shipp Jr. In the latest trailer, we get to see a moment where Tupac faces off with The Notorious B.I.G. 

The video starts off with a flashback to Tupac's youth with his mother, Afeni Shakur Davis, getting dragged out of their home by the FBI. She narrates the entire trailer, warning Tupac about how he's a target because he's a black man. From there, we fast-forward to a more mature Tupac getting thrown against a gate by the police for a stop and frisk search. 

Biggie doesn't come in until the video jumps to Tupac living life in the fast lane with his supply of money, drugs, and women. The camera switches from Tupac in a studio to a crowd chanting his name before he takes the stage at a concert. The trailer is only a minute long, but every second gives us chills.

All Eyez On Me premieres on June 16. Watch the trailer in the video, below.

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.

"In the midst of chaos there's opportunity"

Following the travesty that was Fyre Festival, Ja Rule wants to take another stab at creating a music festival. Good luck getting that off the ground.

On Thursday, the rapper spoke to TMZ, where he revealed that he was planning to relaunch Icon, an app used to book entertainers, which is similar to Billy McFarland's Fyre app. He told the outlet that he wanted to create a festival similar to Fyre to support it.

"[Fyre Festival] is heartbreaking to me. It was something that I really, really wanted to be special and amazing, and it just didn't turn out that way, but in the midst of chaos there's opportunity, so I'm working on a lot of new things," he says. He then gets into the fact that he wants to form a music festival. "[Fyre] is the most iconic festival that never was... I have plans to create the iconic music festival, but you didn't hear it from me."

Ja Rule actually doesn't seem to think he is at all responsible for what came from Fyre Fest, claiming in a Twitter post that he was "hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, led astray." Even if that's his feeling, he should realize that anyone involved with Fyre shouldn't ever try their hand at music festivals again.
