Much of the media surrounding the life of The Notorious B.I.G. has chosen to place great emphasis on the circumstances of his murder and its relation to the East Coast/West Coast rivalry of the ’90s. However, in its latest documentary, the streaming service has teamed up with the late stars mother, Violetta Wallace, and his close friend, Sean Combs (Puff Daddy), to bring viewers a fresh look at the life of one of the greatest rappers and lyricists of all time.
Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell focuses on the origins of renowned artist Biggie Smalls and details his rise to stardom. This intimate documentary features rare footage captured by his best friend Damion “D-Roc” Butler and includes interviews with the people who knew him best as they share their thoughts and memories of the rap legend.
