Last month we told you about a Straight Outta Compton sequel that was in the works. The movie will reportedly pick up where the first film ended and tell the story of Tupac Shakur, Nate Dogg, Lady of Rage, Tha Dogg Pound and Snoop Dogg.
TMZ nabbed the first pics of the cast and it looks like Death Row Records at it’s peak will be a major part of the story.
The cast includes Lady of Rage as herself, Dr. Dre’s son, Curtis Young, as the legendary producer, Reggie Noble (Suge Knight), DaDa (2Pac), Azad Arnaud (Daz Dillinger) and Melvin Jackson Jr. (Kurupt).
The photos were snapped over the weekend during shooting of a scene at an L.A. studio that depicts the 24-hour session where 2Pac, fresh from being bailed out of prison by Suge, recorded “Ambitionz Az a Ridah” and “I Ain’t Mad at Cha.”
There is no major studio tied to the film as of yet, but it’s full steam ahead.
What are your initial thoughts on the project?
