Outlawz member E.D.I. Mean appeared on a live stream via The Lionel B Show where he spoke about the status on an Outlawz documentary slated to drop in 2021.
Back in February 2017 news broke fast when Young noble posted a photo of himself and fellow Outlawz member EDIDON via his Instagram @young_noble. Noble asked the fans whether they would believe him if he said an Outlawz movie was in the works.
“Me & my brotha @edidono4l got a hellava story to tell over 20 years dedicated to this Outlaw shit! If I told you we had a major movie based on our lives in the workz would you believe me? 😂😂,” Noble wrote in the caption.
The Outlawz story will in fact be told, but in a documentary series, rather than a film. Which is good news for fans. A docuseries rather than a movie would allow the story to be told in more detail. This could be quite difficult to accomplish with the Outlawz consisting of seven members, time constraints could be an issue when trying to cramp so much into a 2 hour movie. An issue that was evident in the Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me as many felt the movie was rushed through.
Perhaps a mini series documentary on a network such as HBO or A&E is a better fit. This option has seen great response and reviews when it came to certain documentaries such as HBO’s The Defiant Ones. A&E Who Killed Tupac series also garnered positive interest and feedback.
Speaking to The Lionel B Show, E.D.I. gave an update on the Outlawz documentary. “To be honest with you, we just locked down a deal with our producer partners and they handled all that,” E.D.I. revealed. “I really can’ speak on where its gonna go, but we will have an announcement for everybody once its all the way locked in, signed and sealed on the dotted line.”
With a script already completed and now with a pending deal, the Outlawz story could be told in 2021. “We’re gonna put a real comprehensive piece for all the Tupac Outlawz fans.”
