Bet You Didn’t Know: Secrets Behind the Making of “Poetic Justice”
More on Pac…(because we know you can’t get enough)
In an interview promoting the movie, Tupac said he took the role because he wanted to show another facet of black men in South Central L.A.
“I wouldn’t be honest if I didn’t show another reflection of a young black male of today. All of our young black males are not violent. They’re not taking the law into his own hands. They’re all not going to that extreme. So Lucky’s working, he’s very responsible. He wants to set goals and accomplish them.”
In another interview, (same video clip though) Tupac said that he really enjoyed working with Janet Jackson.
“For me to do this right, I gotta really, truly indeed fall in love with Janet Jackson. And I did that… And when the movie was over it was like we broke up…”
Aww, doesn’t that kinda break your heart a little bit? But don’t feel too bad, Tupac said his tongue would never be the same. 🙂
