The Album:

  • Contractual Obligation Project: Tupac made this a double album to fill out his three-album deal with Death Row Records.
  • Release Date Change: The album was originally intended for a Christmas 1995 release but was pushed back as Tupac continued to record music and shoot music videos for the album.
  • Working Title: The album was originally titled Euthanasia before it was switched to it's current title.

The Film:

  • Approval of God: While she eviscerated the movie for twisting her relationship with Shakur, Jada Pinkett praised Kat Graham and Demetrius Shipp Jr. for their portrayals of herself and Tupac, respectively. Suge Knight and Sean Combs also gave their blessings and praise to their portrayals in the movie.
  • Author Existence Failure: Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, was the executive producer for the movie, and died over a year before it hit the theaters.
  • Not Screened for Critics: The film wasn't screened for critics prior to release, leading some fans to fear the worst. And they were right.
  • Saved from Development Hell: It took seven years to get the film out due to multiple behind the scenes issues, most notably with John Singleton leaving the director's chair due to extreme creative differences, and a massive lawsuit against Morgan Creek over the casting of Tupac and the movie's distribution, among other things.

  • Separated-at-Birth Casting: Demetrius Ship Jr. bears an uncanny resemblance to the real Tupac Shakur. Naturally, because his father was one of Tupac's producers, theories began springing up that Tupac slept with his mother at some point.
  • Working Title: The film was initially titled Tupac in it's early stages.
