A scripted True Crime series based on the murder investigations of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls. It will chronicle the two major police investigations into the separate murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls. Tupac was killed in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in September 1996 at the age of 25, and Biggie was also shot and killed by an unknown assailant in March 1997 at the age of 24.
Bokeem Woodbine was in a movie with Tupac Shakur called Gridlock'd. See more »
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 »
I genuinely didn't know what to expect when I decided to give the first episode a look; I thought it'd be a documentary at first.
Of course, I quickly learned otherwise, and was soon gripped. I have no idea at how accurate it was, but simply focusing on it as though the story was pure fiction, I did find it very entertaining. Not everything was perfect, but it is definitely an enjoyable watch. Even if you're not into Biggie & Tupac, if you're into cop/detective dramas, celebrity lifestyle, hood films and so on, you'll really enjoy it, and that's why I gave this a 9.
