In light of Tupac Shakur’s All Eyez on Me biopic dropping next week, Billboard got its hands on an exclusive clip from the movie.
The 48-second teaser features Suge Knight visiting Shakur in jail after he was sentenced for sexually abusing a fan in 1995.
In hopes of luring ‘Pac over to Death Row Records, Knight lists all the things he can offer the embattled rapper.
“Money ain’t a thing. What you need is guidance,” says Knight.
“I’m not saying you can’t have friends, but I’m the one who’s gonna be t with you 24/7/365, so it should be me. Death Row ain’t a label, it’s a way of life,” he continues.
Shakur’s decision to sign with Death Row Records in 1995 was a pivotal move in his career.
He released his opus All Eyez on Me later that year, which not only signified his comeback, but bolstered the legitimacy of Death Row as a super label.
