Black creativity wins again!
When it comes to the Internet, we are always sure to start or take a trend to the next level and this time it’s the late Tupac, who’s been the topic of conversation across social media.
Just two days after the world honored what would’ve been the Hip-Hop legend’s 50th birthday, an animated version of the “How Do You Want It” emcee made its way around the web.
On Friday (June 18), a clip of a scene between the late rapper and Omar Epps surfaced — except Tupac had been turned into a cartoon.
A Twitter user captioned the post, “They said if Juice was made by Pixar.”

As you can see, it was accompanied by a video of the scene from the 1992 cult classic where Bishop, portrayed by Tupac, and Q, played by Epps, had an intense discussion after he had been avoiding him after he shot their friend Raheem, played by Khalil Kain.
“You’re right. I am crazy,” said a now animated Bishop in the clip after Q approached him with concerns about his desire to be in the streets.
Using Voila AI Artist, Tupac’s character was turned into a Pixar-inspired cartoon character which made the famous scene 100 times better than before.
According to KRON4, the new photo editing app uses artificial intelligence (AI) to turn your photos into a Renaissance-era painting, Pixar-inspired cartoon, and more.
The cartoon feature has been a hit across social media, so much so that it has pushed Voila to the top of the App Store charts.
Voila is free to use on both iOS and Android platforms and users can pay for a subscription to avoid ads and “faster processing” features.
It looks like fans wouldn’t mind seeing more of their favorite films with cartoon depictions seeing as though the Tupac post garnered over 3,000 retweets and tons of reactions from both “Juice” and Tupac fans.
