According to Benny Boom, Nipsey Hussle was set to play Snoop Dogg in the Tupac biopic “All Eyez On Me”. However, he turned down the role due to his conflicting schedule.
“Nipsey was supposed to play Snoop…we wanted him to play Snoop in All Eyez On Me. We didn’t have any other person that we wanted to play him. It’s crazy because, as much as I knew Nipsey, I didn’t realize how much he was driving things in his community. And to take him out of LA for that amount of time that we needed to come to Atlanta where we shot, it would’ve just thrown him off his square a little bit. Just the timing didn’t work out”, stated Boom.
The role was then given to Jarrett Ellis.
