Soulja Boy Asked to Play Late Tupac Shakur

Soulja Boy, Soulja Boy! The young rapper has been approached to play Tupac Shakur in a biopic about the late rapper.

Soulja boy admits he's been approached to take on the role, but he's still thinking about whether it's the right career move.

He told MTV's 'RapFix Live': "I got an email from William Morris agency - that's my agency that I'm with - they reached out to me to play the part.

"I'm just still thinking about it right now. Even with the whole 'Juice' movie, I'm playing a part that Tupac played, but I'm not actually playing Pac.

"When it comes to this, I'm actually gonna be playing Pac, so I'm really still just thinking about it. But I'm honored that they would reach out to me and ask me anyway."

So far Oscar-winning directors Stephen J. Rivele and Chris Wilkinson are already on board for the movie, so it really sounds promising. They both did the screenplay for 'Ali' back in 2001 and seem really passionate about the project.

Soulja boy has enough tattoos to pull off the role, but does he have enough swagger? You be the judge. You think he's a good fit?
