Highlights from Tupac's Film Career on His 40th Birthday
Tupac as Lucky in "Poetic Justice"
The spotlight on Tupac Shakur's life often focuses on his musical ventures, but people seem to forget about his career on the big screen. From Janet Jackson to Tim Roth and even Mickey Rourke, Tupac co-starred
alongside some of Hollywood's big players. So in honor of the legendary hip-hop artist's 40th birthday, we
compiled a few highlights from his filmography.

5. "Gridlock'd" (1997) - Released after Tupac's death, the stabbing debate with Tim Roth is quite hilarious.
