A teaser for the biopic of Tupac Shakur was posted to Instagram early Thursday on what would have been the legendary rapper's 45th birthday.

The "All Eyez On Me" preview includes scenes of an FBI raid and actor Demetrius Shipp Jr. appearing as Shakur before devoted fans.

The clip gives Shakur followers further indication of how Shipp pulled off the portrayal after footage emerged in April of the actor recreating a famous courthouse interview that Shakur gave in 1994.

The film has hit stumbling blocks on its way to the finish, going through two directors before Benny Boom took over the project.

IMDB had listed Nov. 11 for the film's release, but Morgan Creek Productions told The Huffington Post that the film has yet to secure a date.
