While John Singleton’s Tupac biopic is going through its growing pains, there’s another director looking to make a major ‘Pac film. Gobi Rahimi, who has directed and produced videos for 2pac and Deathrow in the ’90s just launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for his own movie about the rapper’s last days. He’s looking to raise $500K in seed money for his project 7Dayz. The script will focus on the rapper’s last seven days alive following his 1996 shooting in Las Vegas.

“I was waiting for Tupac at Club 662 in Las Vegas after the Mike Tyson fight on September 7, 1996,” Rahimi wrote on the crowdfunding site. “Soon after, I was informed by rapper Nate Dogg that Tupac and Suge Knight had been shot and taken to University Hospital. I immediately rushed there to be by Tupac’s side. This was the first of an emotional seven days that I sat guard over Tupac, who was in an induced coma, riding the line between life and death. 7Dayz is the story of my experience at the hospital amidst death threats, undercover FBI informants and an uncooperative police department.”
