Twenty years following his tragic passing, and now the networks are starting to pump out “specials” on the life and times of The Notorious B.I.G.
USA Network announced that it has ordered for the “true crime drama” series Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.. It is supposed to document “the dual police investigations into the controversial murders of two of the rap industry’s most legendary players.”
Think 2016’s The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story on FX… but on the home of Monk, Psych and the WWE.
A&E — one of the many networks which had a doc on the riots, L.A. Burning: The Riots 25 Years Later — announced the impending arrival of two documentaries on both fallen rappers: Who Killed Tupac? and Biggie: The Life of Notorious B.I.G., respectively. Who Killed Tupac? will be a mammoth, six-hour series set to air in the fourth quarter of 2017, while Biggie is set to air September 4th.
The latter has seen an earlier preview released, one of which featured 2 Chainz, T-Pain and Wiz Khalifa talking about the late rapper’s legacy. Another teaser has dropped, which features both JAY-Z and Nas speaking on Christopher Wallace’s genius.
