I’m in for more Tupac films and documentaries, especially after John Singleton left the current biopic. But there’s a new one in the works focusing on Pac’s last 7 days via Gobi Rahimi, who directed videos for 2Pac and Death Row in the 90s. Here’s his statement and crowdfunding pitch for $500K to make 7Dayz.
“I was waiting for Tupac at Club 662 in Las Vegas after the Mike Tyson fight on September 7, 1996,” Rahimi wrote on the crowdfunding site. “Soon after, I was informed by rapper Nate Dogg that Tupac and Suge Knight had been shot and taken to University Hospital. I immediately rushed there to be by Tupac’s side. This was the first of an emotional seven days that I sat guard over Tupac, who was in an induced coma, riding the line between life and death. 7Dayz is the story of my experience at the hospital amidst death threats, undercover FBI informants and an uncooperative police department.”
