(AllHipHop Rumors) I mean is there beef between John Singleton and Benny Boom or what?!
Singleton recently stopped by The Breakfast Club to promote his new show ‘Rebel’ on BET, and the film director wasted no time in firing more shots at the forthcoming Tupac biopic, ‘All Eyez On Me’.
“They were trying to tell me, ME how to make a movie about Pac. Come on now. Really. So I was like…… No I didn’t back out gracefully. I was like putting them on their backs. I don’t even have to speak on that anymore .Y’all just see when it comes out…..I don’t have to see it. Come on. It aint me, so I don’t have to see it,” said Singleton.
To some it sounds like hate is coming from Singleton. Some feel that he is even a bit bitter. Others took the time to point out that Singleton and Pac allegedly weren’t even on good terms with Pac died. Apparently Singleton never once visited Pac while he was in jail, and fired Pac from ‘Higher Learning’.
According to Bossip, an insider close to Pac has revealed that Pac getting fired from the role caused him to agree to a $7500 recording session with Little Shawn at Quad Studios, where Pac ended up getting shot.
It makes you wonder, if Tupac hadn’t been strapped for cash, would he even have agreed to the session, been at the studio, got shot? Would the East Coast/ West Coast feud ever have started? Hmmmmmm.
Singleton has expressed that he still hasn’t watched the biopic and he refused to watch it because he already knows that they “f-cked up.”
He says that he knows it’s not good because he isn’t the one doing it. Do you think Singleton is hating on Boom? Should he have at least watched the film before being a critic? What are your thoughts?
