Netflix has unveiled the trailer for Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell, its upcoming original documentary on hip hop legend The Notorious BIG.
Out March 1, the doc will chronicle Biggie Smalls’ rise to fame and examine his impact on the music world, even after his untimely death in the late ’90s. The film also aims to show another side to the iconic rapper through exclusive never-before-seen footage and interviews with Biggie’s closest friends and family.
Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell is executive produced by Biggie’s longtime friend and label head, P Diddy, who also appears in the film. In the two-minute-long trailer released earlier this week, Diddy recalls the late rapper’s overnight success. “We have no origins from what rap planet this guy came from,” he says.
Biggie—whose real name was Christopher Wallace—died in March 1997 after he was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. Despite his short-lived career, the rapper changed hip hop with hits and classics like “Mo Money Mo Problems,” “Hypnotize” and “Juicy.” Last year, Biggie was posthumously inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, alongside Depeche Mode, Whitney Houston, Nine Inch Nails, T Rex and the Doobie Brothers.
