First Trailer for 'Biggie: I Got A Story To Tell' Documentary on Netflix
"I'm just trying to rip the hardest rhymes." Netflix has revealed the first official trailer for Biggie: I Got A Story To Tell, a new music documentary made by filmmaker Emmett Malloy, featuring the tagline: "Every legend has an origin story." This documentary contains rare footage filmed by Christopher Wallace's best friend, Damion "D-Roc" Butler, and interviews with his closest friends and family, revealing a side of Biggie Smalls that the world never knew. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, and best known by his stage names the Notorious B.I.G., Biggie Smalls, or simply Biggie, Wallace was a famous American rapper and songwriter. Rooted in the New York rap scene and gangsta rap traditions, he is considered one of the greatest rappers of all time. He was tragically murdered at the age of 24 in 1997 while on a promotional tour in California. This looks like it might be an excellent doc that digs deeper into his life story than ever before. Get a look below.
