Demetrius Shipp Jr.’s life changed when he landed the role of Tupac in the biopic, All Eyez On Me. The crazy part is, the Carson, California native had no acting experience prior to the audition. Of course, landing the role meant doing everything in his power to prove why he’s the best fit, which resulted in hours of practicing and reciting old Tupac interviews and rhymes.
If you’ve seen 50 Cent’s hit show on Starz, Power, you probably know who Michael Rainey Jr. is. Not only does he play Ghost’s son, Tariqu, but he kills his role. Having gone through 6 seasons of Power, which is actually crazy because nobody’s safe on the show, he finally takes the lead as the star of POWER BOOK II: GHOST.
