This documentary features 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.
We all know the story of Biggie the rapper, but not many know the story of the person Christopher Wallace. Well you get that story here in this documentary. It goes into Biggie as a child, how he grew up, where he grew up, his relationships with his mother, family and friends. It tells the story of his love for rap music and how he got started. There’s interviews mainly from his mother and childhood friends, but Puff Daddy tells the story of how they met and began making music.
The documentary is a little rushed in parts like his beef with Tupac quickly gets told and his death is a little bit rushed too. which is a shame because his beef with Tupac was a big part of his story and led to a lot of trouble for both rappers and their early deaths. To rush through that part of his life is a little short sighted, they could have dug a little deeper and spent more time on that.
This is a pretty good documentary on Biggie and you may find out some things you didn’t know about him before. There’s some footage of him in his early days rapping, which I haven’t seen before which was good to see and some rare photos too. The interviews are good, but it is a little rushed towards the end and quickly tells parts of his story which they could have spent a little bit more time on. All in all though I enjoyed this and if you’re a fan it’s definitely worth a watch.
