New Tupac Short Film - Drunken Freestyle : an Interview with 2PAC
Portraying an edgy and provocative Tupac, Bailey introduces his interpretation of the west coast rapper in his natural habitat. Among his posse in studio, he boasts with a bottle of whisky, "This is my process."
"I wanted to get to the core of Tupac," he says. He was so versatile that at one stream of consciousness moment he could be comical, belligerent and drunk and then artistic and serious.
In bringing this duality to life, Mr. Bailey spent about a month in pursuit of everything Tupac encompassed. I did a ton of research and everything onscreen comes from interviews he had given, says Bailey.
He doesn't hold back either - Tupac or Bailey. "I don't want to talk about rape," the caricature says. "Yeah, I have some regrets but I slap some bitch on the ass and I get locked up. What can you say, there are women or and there are bitches."
It definitely works to comedic effect but also shows the excess that was part of his life. At the same time, Bailey defends Tupac's personal views out of the different experiences that went along with fame and his upbringing.
Of course, a simpler explanation may suffice for Tupac's bravado. "He really liked to push people's buttons," says Bailey.
His manifesto on his mother's love and the sister like affection he had for Jada Pinkett came across as compelling onscreen. but again as is his nature, you couldn't help wondering about his level of sincerity.
Still, Mr. Bailey seemed in person to believe in the place Tupac held for his mother. On the other hand, Bailey's Tupac lamented on the lack of a father. "A woman cannot teach a man to be a man," he stated.
On that, Bailey agreed a father figure and a better support system might have made all the difference. "He's representative of a lot of young men who didn't have the right guidance, he says, "and he ended up being a victim of his own sword."
Nothing says that better than directly threatening Biggie Smalls to the camera's face. "Why do got to bring that fat fucker up," he demands in the film.
Overall, the power of the performance was put best by Bailey's assistant director and co-star Ren Humphries. "To see Damian doing this - it was just mesmerizing and a blessing to be part of, he says.
As for the viewer ship of audiences and the film festivals it will appear at, Mr. Bailey realizes that everyone has their own interpretation and he doesn't worry about how others see the work he produces. "I just do my work," he says, "and go home."
