Tupac Shakur famously attacked director Allen Hughes after being fired from the 1993 film Menace II Society

Pac was then slapped with an assault and battery charge.

Now, fast-foward three decades later and Hughes has directed the FX docuseries Dear Mama: The Saga of Afeni and Tupac Shakur

Hughes spoke about directing the project on The Breakfast Club and explained why his past beef with Pac didn’t stop him. [Jump to the 36:09-mark]

“What kind of b*tch ass sh*t would I be on to first of all not be proud of the icon he’s become and why would I want to sh*t on that?” asked Hughes. “If anything, the reason why I took the job was I want to understand him more … I’m trying to understand—you go around the world, Africa, South America, Asia, Europe, you see that mural. You don’t see anyone around the world like that. I don’t give a f*ck who it is. You don’t see ‘em in Africa like Tupac … He’s the strange, paradoxical 20th century figure that you can project anything you want to: lover, fighter, saint, sinner, poet, philosopher, violence. Whatever you want to see, you’ll see in Tupac.”

What do you think has made Pac such an icon?
