Watch The Trailer For Netflix’s New Documentary On The Notorious B.I.G. “Biggie: I Got A Story To Tell”
In the wake of the Notorious B.I.G.’s landmark induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and ahead of what would have been his 50th birthday, Netflix has shared the trailer for the new Notorious B.I.G. documentary dropping March 1st.
Biggie: I Got A Story To Tell 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 an intimate rendering of a man whose rapid ascent and tragic end has been at the center of rap lore for more than twenty years.
Directed by Emmett Malloy, this intimate documentary features rare footage filmed by his best friend Damion “D-Roc” Butler and new interviews with his closest friends and family, revealing a side of Christopher Wallace that the world never knew. I Got A Story To Tell is executive produced by Sean Combs, Biggie’s mother Voletta Wallace, Mark Pitts, Stanley Buchthal, and Emmett and Brendan Malloy.
“The running joke about documentary films is often how long they take to make. This film lived up to all those stereotypes, taking us four years to develop and make it,” director Emmett Malloy said in a statement to Rolling Stone. “Through those years we were immersed in Brooklyn in the 70s through the 90s. It is easy to see how much Brooklyn has changed since Christopher Wallace was a kid, but it’s also clear that many things about being a young black man in this country have not changed.”
The Notorious B.I.G. was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in November 2020.
