"I'm germinating over that time, and talking to old friends, and having these emotional moments. I met Tupac through Queen Latifah in New York at this party that we were at... We were just partying, having a good time, just casually. Then I saw him again at the Beverly Center... in L.A. He was walking around, talking to girls at the mall... Then I saw him do his first interview... (when) he declared war on black Hollywood... He was like, ‘F**k Spike Lee, f**k Eddie Murphy, f**k Quincy Jones...’ And I was like, 'I want to work with him!'" Director John Singleton on preparing for his upcoming Tupac Shakur biopic.
