Biggie Documentary Will Show An In-depth Look At His Musical Impact Around The World
It’s been almost twenty years since we lost a world-renowned Hip-Hop icon, The Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie Smalls. However, today, his legacy still carries on. According to reports, there will be a new Biggie documentary, chronicling the life of the Brooklyn-bred rapper and his musical influence on the world. Titled Notorious B.I.G.: One More Chance, the documentary was given the green light by Biggie’s mother, Voletta Wallace, and will be in development with Submarine Entertainment and ByStorm Films. Emmett & Brendan Malloy will also serve as the directors.
The rapper, formerly known as Christopher George Latore Wallace, was shot dead at a traffic light on March 9th, 1997, in Los Angeles; he was leaving a VIBE Magazine after party. His sophomore album, Life After Death, was set to release a couple weeks later on March 25th. Biggie was only 24 years old.
We are deeply saddened that the legendary lyricist had to go so soon. But, his fans, family, and friends have done a great job at keeping the memory alive. Earlier this month, singer Faith Evans announced that there would be an album, with duet songs recorded between the two, releasing on May 19th of this year. The date comes two days before what would’ve been Biggie’s 45th birthday. Faith and the rapper were together from 1994 all the way up until his death. They share one son together, Christopher George Latore Wallace Jr.
No word on when the Biggie documentary will be released, but we’re excited for it to come to fruition.
