Netflix has released the official trailer for upcoming documentary Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell, placing the spotlight on rap artist Christopher George Latore Wallace, aka The Notorious B.I.G., aka Biggie Smalls.
Made with the support of Biggie’s estate and featuring rare footage and interviews with his close friends and family, including his mother and friend/fellow-rap star Sean “Diddy” Combs (who executive produced), the feature doco offers an intimate look at the music star. The Brooklyn-born artist led a monumental, if all-too short life, rocketing to stardom in the ’90s and tragically dying at age 24. His killer was never found, although conspiracies abound.
The documentary is directed by Emmett Malloy, who has a long list of music video credits (for artists such as Blink-182, Vampire Weekend and The Black Eyed Peas) and documentaries, plus a sole narrative feature, Jennifer Garner-starring 2017 film The Tribes of Palos Verdes.
Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell will be streaming on Netflix from March 1st.
