Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy sure knows how to get Hip-Hop heads riled up. When it was announced that Soulja was taking on the task of revisting the role of Bishop in the film “Juice” heads immediately began to target the Atlanta native. Never one to fold under a cloud of controversy, the SODMG founder moved forward his with plans putting the film in full-production. To add further insult to injury (at least amongst the critics), Soulja revealed that he’s been solicited to audition for the upcoming biopic to play the role of Tupac Shakur. Fall out of your chair, rap fans.
During yesterday’s edition of RapFix Live, Young Bishop, as Sway referred to him, called into the show via skype to reveal the news.
“I got an email from William Morris Agency — that’s my agency that I’m with — they reached out to me to play the part. I’m just still thinking about it right now,” Soulja told Sway. “Even with the whole ’Juice’ movie, I’m playing a part that Tupac played, but I’m not actually playin’ ’Pac. When it comes to this, I’m actually gonna be playin’ ’Pac, so I’m really still just thinkin’ about it. But I’m just honored that they would reach out to me and ask me anyway.”
While Soulja contemplates taking on the daunting task of playing the role of ’Pac, he noted that his own film was now complete.
“I shot the movie. It’s done. We did a good job. It’s gonna be crazy,” SB said. “I’m ready for the masses to see it. I got the ’Juice’ music video coming out for the official soundtrack for all the people to hype ’em up, to get everybody crunk.”
