Nearly 20 years after Tupac’s death at Nevada’s University Medical Center Hospital, one of the people who witnessed the rapper’s battle to survive is trying to raise money to make a film about Shakur’s sad final week.
Gobi M. Rahimi, videographer for “I Ain’t Mad At Cha,” “Hit Em Up,” and “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted,” has started the Indiegogo campaign for his project 7 Dayz documenting Tupac’s last days of life.
Revolt Tv reports, the man who claimed to have written a letter to Tupac and called to fire Shuge Knight and lawyer David Kenner is trying to raise $300,000 for the film.
“I was inspired to tell this story because I believe that ‘history is written by great people’s contemporaries,’” says the project’s IndieGogo page. “I was witness to Tupac’s final days and I owe it to him and to the world to tell this story.”
Rahimi has been trying to get this film launched for a few years. He started a Kickstrarter to raise funds for the film. The attempted goal was $95,000 but he only raised $17,464; the funding was closed as of March 3, 2013.
Reports say John Singleton is planning to make his own Tupac biopic.
