Netflix dropped its first trailer Monday for the upcoming film, “Biggie: I Got A Story To Tell” (probably streaming in March ), which is set to explore the legendary Brooklyn rapper’s rise to fame, his legacy in the music industry, and his untimely death more than 20 years ago. The documentary will feature never-before-seen footage filmed by his best friend, Damion “D-Roc” Butler, with Sean “Diddy” Combs serving as executive producer.
The trailer features interviews with the rapper’s closest friends and family members in order to offer an inside look into a side of Biggie that the world never knew.
“Biggie blew up overnight,” says Combs, who helped launch B.I.G.’s career in the ’90s. “We have no origins from what rap planet this guy came from.”
“I was happy that he was making something with his life,” his mother adds in the trailer.
Releasing after the celebrated rapper’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and ahead of what would have been his 50th birthday this March, the documentary was created alongside Biggie’s estate and was executive produced by his mother Voletta Wallace, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Mark Pitts, Stanley Buchthal, Emmet Malloy and Brendan Malloy. Biggie: I Got A Story To Tell boasts of 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,” and is set to feature rare footage filmed by the legend’s best friend Damion “D-Roc” Butler and interviews with his closest friends, family, industry figures and celebrities that came to know Christopher Wallace.
First announced in 2017 with the title One More Chance, director Emmet Malloy revealed that it was only completed recently. Biggie’s former manager and current estate manager Wayne Barrow said to Rolling Stone, “Mama Wallace and I had a conversation about creating the first Estate sanctioned documentary about BIG’s life and the initial thought was to have the story told from the perspective of his fans globally and how they were inspired by him and his music.”
D Roc added, “Big was always a visionary. There will never be such a crazy time in Brooklyn as in the 1980’s and 1990’s, out of great struggle, comes great art and music. The Brooklyn kid rapping today won’t have the same stories we have to tell.”
Watch the full trailer. Biggie: I Got A Story To Tell premieres in March on Netflix.
