From Brooklyn to the big screens.

Rapper Maino, who has always been vocal about his appreciation for late Tupac Shakur, has been casted in the upcoming "All Eyez On Me" biopic.

According to the teasers posted on his Instagram page, the BK rapper will take on the role of Walter "King Tut" Johnson, a Brooklyn heavy who was introduced to Pac through Jacques “Haitian Jack” Agnant. The latter role is taken on by actor Cory Hardrict. The names of Agnant, Tut, as well as James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond, would later become synonymous with the infamous Quad Studios shooting in 1994.
