Almost 24 years since the Notorious B.I.G.‘s tragic passing and it’s clear that his legacy remains as one of the most influential rappers of all time. As family members and close friends recall memories shared with the late rapper, the Voletta Wallace and Sean Combs executive produced documentary hopes to “offer a fresh look” in Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell.
Born Christopher Wallace, the documentary was made in collaboration with his estate to feature rare footage filmed by Wallace’s best friend Damion ‘D-Roc’ Butler and new interviews with close friends and family.
According to Netflix, the new documentary “offers a fresh look at one of the greatest, most influential rappers of all time by those who knew him best. Made in collaboration with Biggie’s estate, I Got a Story To Tell is a rendering of a man whose rapid ascent and tragic end has been at the center of rap lore for more than twenty years.”
Set to be released on March 1, the documentary is directed by Emmett Malloy and also executive produced by Mark Pitts, Stanley Buchtal, and Emmett and Brendan Malloy.
