Verdict: a&E's "Biggie: The Life Of Notorious B. I. G." it Is To the Point
Faith Evans, Diddy, JAY-Z, Nas, Lil Cease, and Biggie's mother Voletta Wallace to get up close and personal.
A&E renewed Biography of the series started on Monday (4 September) with the Biggie: The Life of Notorious B. I. G., a three-hour documentary on the late rap legend Christopher "Biggie" Wallace.
With appearances of integral figures in the Brooklyn native's brief life, including Biggie's widow Faith Evans, his mother Voletta Wallace, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Lil Cease, Nas, and JAY-Z, the documentary is immersed in Biggie's childhood, the ascent to the eternal rap notoriety and untimely death at the age of 25.
It also touches on the tumultuous relationship between Biggie and fellow Hip-Hop luminary Tupac Shakur. Full of a lot of archive footage and previously unreleased audio recordings, the Brand Ford-directed film event clearly has captivated Hip Hop fans.
Evans, who has recently published The King and I with her late husband to the voice, took to Twitter on Monday night to post a trailer of the documentary with a caption that read, "The most personal and revealing documentary about the late Christopher Wallace that no one has ever seen."
