The team behind Tupac‘s All Eyez on Me biopic recognized the 20th anniversary of the legendary rapper’s death by releasing another trailer.
The one-minute, 42-second clip features Pac’s mom, Afeni Shakur, played by Danai Gurira, giving him words of wisdom and warning him about the bullseye on his back because he is a leader of culture.
Tupac, played by Demetrius Shipp, Jr., says words that are all too familiar, “Cops kill innocent black folk every day and [Vice President] Quayle’s coming after me? But I’m used to people coming at me. This sh*t been happening my whole life.”
What follows is an array of images from Pac’s life, including a shot of his iconic “Thug Life” tattoo through a prison jumpsuit, FBI raids, and shoot-outs in the street.
While the movie has hit several legal snags, the producers behind the biopic are now aiming for a November release date. Watch the latest trailer up top.
