I am honored to be able to write with my bros at Politikan. Last night, I was scrolling through Netflix, and with the current events going on, you simply just want to relax. No Covid updates, no presidential B.S. just something to spark your interest. One thing, I love to do is watch documentaries. Specifically, music docs.
Netflix has been coming in clutch with the Black History Month content. We see you, Netflix!
There are so many mysteries with the death of Biggie and PAC and I don’t know if we’ll ever get the real story but it’s jarring to learn more and more about their lives.
The dope thing about this documentary is that there is more personal footage. Biggie’s crew started ‘VLOGGING’ before it was even a thing. Take the camera around, record the real-life behind the scenes. We all know (from afar) and love Notorious B.I.G. as a lyrical genius. The struggle, the fame, and of course his death. The documentary lets you see another side of Biggie. The personality we the Kim and Faith fell in love with. His Jamaican side. The real Christopher Wallace.
I enjoyed the documentary for those reasons. It was nostalgic.
