Goofs

In a scene where Tupac and Biggie are hanging out together, Tupac has a "Makaveli" tattoo on the right side of his neck. In reality, Tupac did not get this Makaveli tattoo until 1996 after he got out of prison in late 1995 and signed with Death Row Records, eventually taking on his Makaveli persona. At this stage, Tupac and Biggie were no longer friends due to the November 30th, 1994 Quad Studio shooting in which Tupac blamed Biggie for having prior knowledge about the shooting. See more »

The absolute complete series
30 September 2018 | by soirkSee all my reviews

It came out of nowhere onto my Netflix list. I've listened to hip hop since school and lived off 2pac. It was a case of "why not"? Made in a similar style to True Detective-the first series which was mint not the second series- as it jumps through the timelines of the '97 inquiry into the biggie killing, the '07 case as a result of biggies mum pursuing justice and the timeline of B.I.G and PAC growing into the music game, the friendship and then the ultimate demise.

Incredible story, with great acting, great filming and a sensational soundtrack. Even if you hate rap and the two rappers in question, the story is worthy of anyone's attention. Watch this series and you won't be disappointed.
