Brilliant Documentary That Solves the Tupac and Biggie Murder Cases
4 February 2016 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

In this amazing documentary one of the key witnesses says: "What I do have to tell you is gonna blow your f***ing minds!". And that is exactly what this documentary is going to do - it will blow your f***ing mind!

It is based on taped confessions of key players involved in the murders of late rap icons Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, that have never previously been shown on film according to the filmmakers. In these confessions we learn exactly who were involved in both hits, who the respective shooters were, and - most importantly - who ordered the respective murders. The extremely compelling and convincing evidence points to two very prominent persons...

The lead detective, Greg Kading, whose criminal investigation this film is based on, is also interviewed extensively. His deep knowledge about these cases and his highly plausible and rational explanations, together with the explosive taped confessions, form the basis of the films narrative.

This is without a doubt a must-see documentary. It will probably appeal to most people, even those who are not interested in rap music and who are not familiar with its subjects, simply because the story that unfolds is so incredibly compelling. Basically I think it would appeal to anyone who likes a good murder mystery. But of course, for fans of the two slain artists, the documentary will naturally provide yet another dimension.

Due to unfortunate and vexing circumstances that are revealed in the film, these murders are still unprosecuted. However, after you have watched this masterpiece, you will know that they have finally been solved.
