I was always more of a Biggie guy. His two albums are landmarks in hip-hop, and few artists have had as great a run of their first three singles as "Party and Bullshit," "Juicy" and "Big Poppa." He was called the greatest rapper of all time by both Rolling Stone and The Source, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year. And now we're getting a proper documentary about his life.
There have been a few docs about the Notorious B.I.G. and his contemporaries, and a two-part Biography episode in 2017. But Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell was produced with the full participation of his estate. Featuring exclusive access to home videos shot by his friend Damion "D-Roc" Butler and interviews with producer Sean Combs and his mother, this looks like a full portrait, taking into account the man's massive talent as well as his flaws.
Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell premieres exclusively on Netflix on Monday, March 1.
