The late Tupac Shakur would have been celebrating his 45th birthday today. To honor him, the first official teaser trailer for the All Eyez on Me biopic has been released. Starring newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr. (who bears an almost haunting resemblance to the rapper), the dramatic clip is a glimpse into Tupac's legacy.
Beginning with a moody take on the rapper's 1996 track "Ambitionz Az a Ridah," the trailer quickly cuts from a chanting crowd to the FBI raiding Afeni Shakur's home to Tupac standing confidently on a stage.
The Walking Dead's Danai Gurira plays Afeni (who passed away earlier this year), with Stefon Washington as Puff Daddy, Grace Gibson as Faith Evans and Kat Graham as Jada Pinkett. All Eyez on Me is expected to hit theaters Nov. 11.
