Fans went crazy after a Twitter user posted a remake of the rapper Tupac Shakur, as a Pixar animated character from his 1992 movie, Juice.
While the Pixar character doesn’t look much like the late rapper, fans still enjoyed the idea. The animated video circulating the internet reenacts a scene from the movie between Omar Epps and Tupac. Tupac’s character, Bishop, is having an intense discussion with Epps’ character, Q.
“You’re right. I am crazy. And you know what else? I don’t give a f*ck. I don’t give a f*ck about you. I don’t give a f*ck about Steel. I don’t give a f*ck about Raheem, either. I don’t give a f*ck about myself.”

“The Internet turned Tupac into a Disney Pixar character. Idk if I should laugh or cry,” wrote rap journalist Tony Centeno. “This scene from ‘Juice’ will never be the same to me, lol.”
Hair Love creator and director Matthew A. Cherry liked the animated remake and said an entire film could be made of an animated Tupac. Others encouraged Cherry to make the film. Ty wrote, “Make the film Matthew.” Chris Williamson wrote,” When he’s ready.”
“You could really do an entire movie like this. Animated heads with real bodies and backgrounds.”

Tupac died on September 13, 1996, but it’s clear fans still love the icon. Rest In Peace, 2Pac.
