Things happened arounddude like Big L, Dame rants, Biggie, rise of Ye,
but his story itself seem lackluster.
This was my biggest glaring mistake of the whole movie. They really forced Pac in there. And the only time they show him he's recording "Hail Mary" a song that came out after Dre left Deathrow. Not to say that he couldn't have recorded it while Dre was still at Deathrow, but there's plenty of other iconic Pac songs you could have used.
This right here. All the other ones that people have been mentioning would not be entertaining as a movie. They would all be a good VH1 behind this music. But 2 Live Crew would make a great movie because like NWA they had real controversy and changed the state of rap and how people looked at it and did in a time where a lot was going on just in the country as a whole. A Jay-Z movie would put me to sleep. A drug dealer turned rapper. Snooze fest.
Just saw the movie. It was really good although the below events had me scratching my head
- The timing of Pac
- Dre punching dudes out left and right
- Dre composing "G Thang" from scratch knowing that was a damn loop
- Not including "Dre Day" as if that wasn't a pivotal moment
Other than that, I enjoyed it thoroughly. The actor who played Ren was so-so, but the other members of the group were very convincing. They did a great job of setting up the story as well, as far as the personal background of the members.
