Netflix is nearly set to release yet another documentary, this one on Christopher Wallace (aka Biggie Smalls, aka The Notorious B.I.G.). Said to illuminate another side of the Hip-Hop star, who was gunned down at a mere twenty-four years of age, the film features never before seen footage of Wallace, as his abridged life is chronicled by those whom he was closest to: Sean “Diddy” Combs, Faith Evans, and Wallace’s mother Voletta, to name a few.
Check out the trailer and an official synopsis below. Directed by Emmett Malloy, Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell premieres March 1 on Netflix.
Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell is the definitive portrait of the man who became The Notorious B.I.G. With unprecedented access granted by the Wallace estate, this cinematic documentary is an emotional and personal journey through the people, places, and events that created the greatest hip-hop artist of all-time. In recently unearthed footage from his breakout years, we go behind the scenes with Biggie to watch him create classic songs in the studio and bring them to life onstage in incredible unseen concert clips. Intimate and candid interviews show the most trusted members of Biggie’s inner circle opening up like never before to share stories that have never been told publicly.
In the words of his mother, Voletta Wallace: “This will be the first documentary to focus 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. This is how he would have wanted to be remembered.
