"Happy Birthday to the homie Tupac," Cube said Tuesday (Jun. 16). "Shooting the Tupac scene for 'Straight Outta Compton' today. The stars are aligned."
But how will Pac be portrayed in the film, which is set to premiere in August? We've got some ideas here:
Will We See Pac And Cube Recording 'Last Wordz' With Ice-T?
This in-your-face track appeared on 1993's Strictly 4 My N.I.--A.Z. Rumors spread that these two worked on more music together, but Cube dispelled those talks in 2013. "I only did one song with 2 Pac," he said on Twitter. "Wish we could've done more." Same.

In 1990 - around the time Tupac was aligned with Digital Underground - the group recorded a song and video with N.W.A titled "We're All In The Same Gang." Could this be a vital scene in "Straight Outta Compton?"
Will We See Private Death Row Meetings Between Dre And Pac?
Tupac and Dr. Dre were both members of Death Row at one point. They even collaborated on the classic "California Love" track that continues to rock parties in and out of the Golden State. But they were also at odds at another point in time. Could we see some behind-the-scenes meetings between Dre and Pac in the film?
Any way you cut it, Tupac's potential appearance in the film only heightens our expectations for the movie's release date.
