Newcomer Demetrius Shipp, Jr. has some big shoes to fill, as Tupac’s story has gone untold for so long because he’s really a part of all of us. Cashmere had the opportunity to gather the major players in the film, as well as hip hop greats and fashion icons, to really discuss Tupac’s legacy and their feedback on All Eyez On Me.
