Tyrin Turner Discusses 2Pac Jumping The Hughes Bros For Firing Him
He also witnessed the notorious incident in which 2Pac jumped Allen Hughes for firing him from the film. Tupac was originally cast to play the Muslim character, Sharif. But he was dissatisfied because he thought he should play the lead instead.
In an interview with VladTV, Turner explains he and the Hughes Bros were shooting a music video for Spice 1’s ‘Triggers Gots No Heart’, which appears on the film’s soundtrack, when Pac got his revenge.
Pac showed up on the music video set ten deep and started beating on Allen. His twin brother Albert ran.
“Next time you fire a nigga, you fire a nigga like a man,” Turner says Pac said, as his boys wailed on Allen.
Turner called the numerically unfair attack “some sucka shit.” Here’s what Allen has said about the incident.
“The biggest misnomer is that me and Tupac got into any fight. It was me and 12 Crips that he got to jump me. He didn’t do shit,” Allen has claimed. “Tupac didn’t lay a hand on me. I had my hands on him. But there was not a physical fight between me and Tupac. It was a physical fight between me and 12 gangbangers. I believe they are called the Rolling 40s and they rolled me up pretty good … Tupac was an artist. Tupac was not a gangbanger. Tupac could not fight to save his motherfucking life. I know that for a fact. He was an immensely gifted person and he was far, far, far from a thug.” He lets out a deep sigh. “I think that’s just years of frustration that just came out.”
Pac was convicted of assault and battery for his role in the beating and spent 15 days in jail
