Continuing in his eerily successful, beyond-the-grave career,

late rapper Tupac Shakur has a brand new film, “Tupac:

Resurrection,” opening this weekend. According to the movie’s Web

site, www.tupac-resurrection.com, video archives helped this

documentary style film trace the rapper’s life from childhood to

his untimely death. The movie uses surviving footage, including

home movies, never-before-seen concert footage, Shakur’s journal

entries and poetry to allow this iconic rapper to tell his story in

his own words.

The film is directed and produced by award-winning filmmaker

Lauren Lazin. Lazin is known for her work on PBS and MTV

documentaries like “Cribs,” “True Life” and “Uncensored.” Tupac’s

mom, Afeni Shakur, served as executive producer for the movie.

Peter Travers of “Rolling Stone” says “Tupac: Resurrection”

“hits hard” and “casts a spell.” Travers says: “Lazin’s remarkable

achievement is to catch Tupac in the act of discovering himself.

It’s something to see.”

“Tupac Resurrection” opens this Friday at theaters nationwide.

The soundtrack is currently available which features music from

Eminem, 50 Cent, The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac himself.
