In celebration of Mother’s Day this Sunday, May 14, CodeBlack has released a first look clip of Danai Gurira and Demetrius Shipp as Afeni and Tupac Shakur in the upcoming biopic “All Eyez On Me.” The two are sharing a tender moment as mother and son in a scene that coincides with the lyrics to his classic Mother’s Day tune, “Dear Mama.”  Check it out below:

As previously reported, “All Eyez on Me” tells the true and untold story of the prolific rapper, actor, poet and activist—Tupac Shakur—from his early days in New York City to his evolution into being one of the world’s most recognized and influential voices of his generation.  Against all odds, Shakur’s raw talent, powerful lyrics and revolutionary mind-set propelled him into becoming a cultural icon whose legacy continues to grow long after his passing at the age of 25.  The film also stars Kat Graham as Jada Pinkett, Lauren Cohan as Leila Steinberg, and Jamal Woolard as Biggie Smalls. “All Eyez On Me” is directed by Benny Boom.

“All Eyez On Me” opens in theaters June 16
