In this clip we wax philosophically about Michonne from ‘The Walking Dead’ playing Afeni Shakur in the Tupac Biopic.

The once troubled Tupac Shakur biopic just landed The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira (Michonne) for one of the film’s most pivotal roles, Afeni Shakur. Gurira will join the “already underway” All Eyez on Me in Atlanta shortly, Deadline reports. Afeni, Tupac’s mother, is widely known as a respected political activist and is considered instrumental in her son’s eventual status as a modern poet.

The Game is not here for Slim Jesus’ music direction and choices. He feels that Slim Jesus better be killing people for real or be prepared to get smoked. Rapper Slim Jesus is already dissing people but trying to convince people (after the fact) that he’s really not about that life. Rappers really have to stop rapping about things that they are not really about and about lives that they really aren’t living. Game is telling Slim Jesus to be careful.
