The new Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez on Me was released on Friday (July 16) and has been getting some mixed reviews, but at least one person liked how the highly anticipated film turned out -- MC Hammer.
According to Billboard, Hammer, a friend of the late Shakur, was celebrating the film's release and what would have been Shakur's 46th birthday online on Friday. He offered his own take on the movie and responded to some of the negative reviews by arguing the film isn't meant to be entirely factual.
"Everything seen,said and done ain't meant to be in a movie. #AllEyezOnMe is an EXCELLENT TRUTHFUL portrayal of my LOVED one. I Salute it," Hammer tweeted.
??? Don't spread none truths. The Outlawz are in the movie !!! Not characters of them but THEM !!! Stop it. With all due respect ✊🏾 https://t.co/w2FfAlgaj8— MC HAMMER (@MCHammer) June 16, 2017
After you see the movie you will understand my response to your question. It's a great movie. It's not a documentary. Salute 👊🏾💯 https://t.co/N2Ywvrcu4q— MC HAMMER (@MCHammer) June 16, 2017
