He added that he found interviews of Pinkett Smith talking about the late icon in an honest way.

Although she did not like the biopic, she praised Kat Graham and Demetrius Shipp Jr. for their exemplary performances in the film.

So what allowed "All Eyez on Me" to overcome the bad reviews?

Last year, he told magazine HipHopDX: "I haven't watched it and I refuse to watch it".

He is also producing via his Universal-based ImageMovers, along with Jack Rapke and Steve Starkey, as well as Cherylanne Martin. Her upcoming projects include "Butterfly in the Typewriter" and Justin Kelly's " JT Leroy ".

Rapper 50 Cent bashed the movie on Instagram, claiming that John Singleton, the director of "Poetic Justice", in which Shakur starred, "said it was wack" but the rapper insisted "I had to see it for my self".

Earlier on Friday, Jada Pinkett Smith - a close friend of Shakur's before his murder - bashed the film for wrongly portraying her relationship with the legendary rapper. Critics for the most part have given the film mixed and average reviews.

But Lionsgate/Codeblack Films' "All Eyez on Me" has managed to buck the trend. "I wouldn't put anything in this film...everybody watching the film, they will tell you, I'm very responsible with everyone". Straight Outta Compton by comparison had a bulk of walk-up business.

Shakur died in Las Vegas at the age of 25 in a shooting that's attracted numerous theories and attempts to solve the crime. Aside from singing, he has also appeared in several movies like "Above the Rim", "Nothing But Trouble", "Bullet", "Gang Related", and "Tupac: Resurrection". Tupac's characteristics are noted and used, but not in any way that reveals more than any '90s hip-hop fan should already know. Excitement is sure to fill any person walking into the theater, but by midway through, it's an unspoken fact that All Eyez on Me is just like any other generic biopic.
