No, it’s not the John Singleton biopic that everyone has been waiting for, but the aspiration of another director to make a Tupac film come into fruition. Gobi Rahimi is looking to shoot a movie about ‘Pac’s last seven days titled, “7Dayz.” Rahimi has launched an Indiegogo campaign for the movie and is looking to raise $500,000 in seed money for the project. He offered a bit of background on the campaign site about his interaction with Tupac the night he died:

“I was waiting for Tupac at Club 662 in Las Vegas after the Mike Tyson fight on September 7, 1996,” Rahimi wrote on the crowdfunding site. “Soon after, I was informed by rapper Nate Dogg that Tupac and Suge Knight had been shot and taken to University Hospital. I immediately rushed there to be by Tupac’s side. This was the first of an emotional seven days that I sat guard over Tupac, who was in an induced coma, riding the line between life and death. 7Dayz is the story of my experience at the hospital amidst death threats, undercover FBI informants and an uncooperative police department.” 

Gobi Rahimi directed and produced videos for 2pac and Deathrow in the ’90s. You can support his campaign here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/7-dayz#/story
