Tupac Shakur’s All Eyez on Me biopic isn’t getting pushed back, at least according to Daz Dillinger.
In an earlier report by TMZ, the website claims the delay comes from who can clear the rights for 2Pac’s “Ambitionz Az a Ridah,” a track from his fourth studio album All Eyez on Me, in order for it to be featured in the film. Dillinger, who is one-half of Tha Dogg Pound and a producer on the song, reportedly said he has the rights to it, while BMG Music Publishing claims they are the owners of the song, which creates a conflict.
TMZ says since all the parties involved can’t come to agreement, the film has been pushed from September to November. Dillinger and BMG are expected to resolve the issue by then.
In response to the TMZ article, Dillinger posted a video on Instagram saying the movie is still on schedule to come out in September.

“Just seen that TMZ shit,” he says. “Ain’t nothing derailed about that Tupac All Eyez On Me movie. My homeboy L.T. Hutton, Benny Boom full blast with that motherfucker.” Dillinger also claims that BMG owes him more than $75,000 in unpaid royalties.
Hutton reposted the video on his Instagram, adding, “All good!! Stop asking me about nonsense people we good. Crazy people believe anything!!”
