This is pretty dope.  In 1996 2Pac was working on a script for a film called All The Way.  He jotted down his dream cast and put him and FP in the leading roles, and even refers to him as "Fresh Prince."  He also lists Jada, Bill Bellamy, MC Hammer, Heavy D, Ice Cube, MC Eiht, Robin Givins, Marky Mark, Marlon Wayens, Chris Tucker, Everlast, Ricky Harris, the group Illegal, Mac Mall, Richie Rich, Arsenio Hall, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Scarface, Yo Yo, Treach, Sticky Fingaz, Freddie Foxx, R. Kelly, K-Ci, Mary J. Blige, Snoop, Vesta, Luke, Pattie LaBelle, Method Man, Rakwon, Shyheim, Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield.

That would pretty much be the dopest cast ever...lol.  I especially like that it really shows who 2Pac respected.  Notice the lack of Deathrow artists.  It's mostly classic emcees and emcees who had mainstream success.  If anyone ever thought there was tension between FP and 2Pac since Jada was one of 2Pac's best friends, I'm pretty sure that's been squashed with this.  It shows that they were cool enough that he believed FP would accept the role.  At the time that he wrote this, Independence Day probably hadn't even been released, which says a lot.

Here's a page from the exhibit that's currently at The Grammy Museum in LA.  Apparently pages from the script are on display as well.
