The part eventually went to Vonte Sweet instead. ALSO READ Things have gone full circle and SLPP is now in power“We at a table reading and Tupac’s just annoyed. We’re trying to read and he’s just annoyed,” said Tyrin Turner in 2013, who played the lead role of Caine in the film. Things would really come to a head between Shakur and Hughes on the set of a music video for rapper Spice1, because Shakur and his entourage were accused of assaulting the director.

Hughes eventually pressed charges, and in March of 1994 Shakur was found guilty of assault and battery. He was sentenced to 15 days in jail, 30 months of probation and 45 days of community service.

At this time, a release date has not been announced for the docuseries.
