Tupac's highly publicized biopic All Eyez On Me has released a 90-second trailer for the film on the 20th anniversary of the "Changes" rapper's death.

The trailer shows little clips of the high drama that will be found in the film. Though one can't get a full glimpse of the plot from the trailer (a good thing), there are key moments and relationships that appear in the film as Tupac tries to deal with his neighborhood, the police and the music industry.

There will be the highs and lows of his life, from getting brutalized by police, to struggling as a rapper early on and then the success that would come later in his career as a rapper and actor. It all ends with his untimely death 20 years ago today, in 1996.

Tupac's doppelganger Demetrious Shipp Jr. brings the rapper to life today. We get a short glimpse of Jamal Woolard back playing Notorious B.I.G., as he did in Notorious. The film was directed by Benny Boom and written by Ed Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft.

Today, Sept. 13, 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of Tupac's death in a drive-by shooting that still remains unsolved to this day. The drive-by took place on Sept. 7 and he died in the hospital six days later. It isn't surprising at all that Morgan Creek Productions would choose this day to promote the trailer online.

No official release date has been set for the film. Until then watch the second trailer for All Eyez On Me.
