For his debut as a writer/director, Ernest Dickerson cast Shakur in his first starring role as Bishop, the wildcard instigator in a group of friends trying to find their place in the violent atmosphere of early ‘90s Harlem. Bishop quickly becomes the antagonist but Shakur’s onscreen charisma is unmistakable. Brattle Debut!
