Tupac Shakur as Ronald Bishop in “Juice” (1992)

During his short career, Tupac Shakur was known as an actor just as much as he was a rapper. Born in Harlem and coming onto the hip hop scene through hip hop group Digital Underground, soon after his emergence Pac delved into acting, with one of his most notable roles being that of Ronald Bishop in the 1992 crime drama “Juice”. Accompanying a friend to an audition for the film, Shakur originally had no intention to audition himself but, on a whim he auditioned, and gained the role, an accomplishment that he later attributed to God. Alongside Omar Epps, Shakur played out for audiences the lives of young African-American men coming of age in the streets of Harlem, New York. The film was received well by critics and Shakur was praised for his role as Bishop. In an interview while promoting the film the rapper described his character in the film as “a psychotic, insecure very violent, very short tempered individual.” Shakur portrayed the role with effortlessly leading some to question whether or not the rapper was actually acting or simply being himself. Regardless of the subtle controversy, the film grossed more than $20 million dollars world wide and Shakur’s memorable performance left him being considered the “film’s most magnetic figure”, according to Rolling Stone Magazine
