Storyline

In 1997, rap superstars Tupac Shakur and Christopher Wallace (aka Biggie Smalls, The Notorious B.I.G.) were gunned down in separate incidents, the apparent victims of hip hop's infamous east-west rivalry. Nick Broomfield's film introduces Russell Poole, an ex-cop with damning evidence that suggests the LAPD deliberately fumbled the case to conceal connections between the police, LA gangs and Death Row Records, the label run by feared rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight. Written by Stephen Kirkham

Brilliant But Sad
2 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This movie covers everything of both murders. And it is sick how easily Suge got away with it. I, and i bet many others are sure he regrets killing off 2pac, the person who kept his company alive. This movie really makes you think.

Brilliant film, but very sad how Biggie got dragged into it to make it look like it was the East Coast beef that got 2pac killed. When in fact it was Suge and his crooked cops.

Nick does lots of research in this movie, more than ever has been covered before. People with neutral thoughts on Rap music and Violence even will love this documentary.

A MUST see.
