Today, Netflix releases a documentary about the early life of Christopher Wallace aka The Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie Smalls, undoubtedly one of the smoothest rappers of all time and whose career ended too early at age 24. He signed his first contract at Sean Combs’ label Bad Boy Records when he was just 21-years old and as one of the most talented rappers.
An ongoing beef between the West- and East Coast rappers led to the death of both Tupac Shakur in September 1996 and Biggie’s half a year later. Tupac was killed in a drive-by shooting in LA while Biggie was killed by an (till this day) unknown assailant.
The docu ‘Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell’ gives you an insight into Biggie’s early life growing up in Brooklyn, NY. New, rare footage has been used to give an ultimate salute to ‘The King of New York’. It includes interviews with people closest to him and will provide details of Biggie’s life that many people may not know.
Biggie, alongside with 2Pac, Nas, Busta Rhymes and many others, still figure as a great inspiration for us. The 90’s HipHop-culture is known for its diverse and innovative rapping-style. They strived for quality and innovation which happen to be one of our core tenets too.
