Sure we know Tupac's legacy as an all-time hip-hop/rap great, lyricist, trendsetter, and iconic figure, but sometimes what doesn't get appreciated enough in the midst of Tupac's greatness is his career as an actor. If you want to get technical, Tupac's introduction to the entertainment industry on a mainstream level came by way of acting before he became one of the top rappers in the game. If you don't exactly agree with that statement, then at the very at least we can all agree that his trajectory to the top happened around the same time in both areas as his debut album 2Pacalypse Now was released on November 12th, 1991, and his first starring role (which has a case for being his most popular), Juice, was released on January 17th, 1992. Some of the best Tupac movies are still some lesser-known highlights from his career.
To have only been 25-years-old at the time of his passing, Tupac certainly accomplished a lot in his short career, which has left an impact that continues on in present day. Today we'll be looking at all of Tupac's movie and TV roles and ranking them.
Let's countdown to the top spot shall we?
