Awesome Documentary
6 April 2012 | by (USA. Delaware) – See all my reviews

I am a big fan of hip hop documentaries. If you've seen any Tupac Shakur, Jam Master Jay, or Notorious B.I.G. documentaries, then you'd like this one. It touches on everything from N.W.A. to Tupac's Death. Explain's the role of: Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Daz Dillinger, Kurupt, Ice Cube, Vanilla Ice, Suge Knight, Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G., and more. It cleared up a lot of questions for me about Tupac's Death. You see interviews from Tupac, his security guards, Biggie Smalls, most producers from Death Row, their lawyers, detectives, witnesses, and even Suge Knight. If you are into West Coast Hip Hop or just the story of Tupac, then you will love this. I gave it an 8, because it starts off well, but then it gets a little dull in the middle, but it ends up to be an exciting and interesting story and I loved it. I learned a lot from it and you really see the stages Tupac went through in his life, from a child, to a back up dance, to being featured on a song, to gangsta rap, to getting shot, to smooth hip hop, to his passing, and why their are over 250 songs that came out after he died. I really appreciate the west coast style a lot more now
