Diddy and Suge Knight Both Approve Their Portrayals in ‘All Eyez on Me’
They may not be going to dinner anytime soon, and they may not agree on a whole 'lot, but Suge Knight and Puff Daddy agree that their respective portrayals in the upcoming Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez on Me is on point.
According to TMZ, Puff liked the film so much that he signed off on The Notorious B.I.G.'s "Who Shot Ya," the song that Pac believed was written about him after he was shot in 1994 outside of New York's Quad Studios.
As far as Suge, he wasn't able to watch the movie due to being incarcerated, but his lawyers viewed it and gave him their thumbs up. Plus, the former Death Row Records boss has known the producer of All Eyez on Me for quite some time and completely trusts him.
Meanwhile, Puff recently spoke about nearing a personal net worth of a billion dollars, since Forbes recently estimated his dough at $820 million. Perhaps surprisingly, the 47-year-old said being a billionaire isn't on his bucket-list, because he has another huge aspiration.
"No, it's not a [goal]," he said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! "My goal is to be happy."
In regards to Mr. Knight, he's still in the midst of his legal troubles after being accused of purposely hitting a man with a car, killing him, then fleeing. Suge also said that he knows who really killed Pac in a documentary that was recently released.
This won't be the first time either Suge or Diddy has been portrayed on the big screen. Derek Luke played Combs in the 2009 Biggie Smalls biopic Notorious and Suge was portrayed by Marcos Taylor in 2015's Straight Outta Compton, which told the story of legendary rap group N.W.A.
All Eyes on Me hits theaters on June 16 and whether Diddy or Suge like their portrayals or not, let's just hope the darn thing is good. Pac deserves that much at the very least, right?
