Netflix has released the official trailer for Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell, a new documentary about the life and career of hip-hop legend Christopher Wallace. Known for his quirky flow and autobiographical lyrics, Wallace is of course best known for his stage names Notorious B.I.G. and Big Baby. The new documentary, featuring rare behind-the-scenes footage and testimonials from his closest friends and family, will be released next month. You can watch the trailer below.
Biggie is a must-see for any Wallace fan and has been described by Netflix as the definitive portrait of the man who became the infamous B.I.G. With unprecedented access through Wallace’s legacy, this cinematic documentary is an emotional and personal journey through the people, places and events that gave birth to the greatest hip-hop artist of all time.
Biggie will also share new footage from his breakthrough years with fans, giving them a behind-the-scenes look at how his classic songs were recorded in the studio and even performed live in previously unreleased music videos. Candid interviews with the most trusted members of the late rapper’s inner circle will also allow fans to get to know the famous B.I.G. on a personal level – with new stories about Wallace never told publicly.
Voletta Wallace, the late rapper’s mother, said of Biggie’s documentary: This will be the first documentary that focuses on the experiences of my son’s life rather than the circumstances of his death. It is a celebration of who he was and where he came from. That’s how he wants to be remembered.
Biggie, who is considered one of the greatest rappers of all time, released his debut album Ready to Die on P. Diddy’s Bad Boy Records in 1994. With songs like Big Poppa and Juicy, the album became an instant hit and Wallace quickly became one of the most popular rappers of the time. A year after the release of his debut album, Biggie was named Rapper of the Year at the Billboard Music Awards. Soon after, he formed the hip-hop group Junior M.A.F.I.A. to help some of his friends succeed in the business.
Rap fans from the 90s will remember that Wallace was also known for his feud with hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur. Just months after the feud began, both rappers were killed in similar circumstances; Shakur was shot in a Las Vegas shooting in September 1996, and Wallace was shot in a Los Angeles shooting the following spring. Biggie’s second album, Life After Death, was released two weeks after his death and reached #1 on the Billboard 200.
It’s big: I Got a Story to Tell will be published on the 1st. Mars published on Netflix. With such an interesting life as Wallace’s, so shortly before his murder at the age of 24, even those unfamiliar with the rapper’s work should find the film very interesting. The official trailer for the documentary comes to us from Netflix on YouTube.
