Did You Know?


This is the second time Luke James has played a real life person. The first time was in the New Edition Story. 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 can admit this serial is underrated. For those who are interested on Pac & Biggie Story and were disappointed by the latest biopic about Pac and the awful Notorious biopic. They'll like this.

First of all I was excited cause my friend advise me to watch this and then I found out Marcc Rose the actor who played Pac in the Straight Outta Compton movie is representing Pac again. I was hyped after this I even forgot about Like Cage Season II.

Secondly I was afraid about conspiracy theories. I didn't knew anything about the investigations and all the suspects around and the possibility that the LAPD was involved in both cases and they tried to deny it. So many views. They really kept in on a good level even better on a fantastic level to enjoy and being excited to the end. It's no Hollywood overdramatizing. It's really based on the true story.

Thirdly I got a Faible for hiphop & investigations ( True Detective ) both combined is really enjoyable for me. I can tell you guys I wasn't a big fan of Josh Duhamel and haven't seen more than 1 movie of him, but his acting was decent. Anyone who critizies the acting in Unsolved is way too harsh. And it's even more ridiculous when anyone argues about the looks of P Diddy & Snoop Dogg representing actors. Suge, Pac & Biggie, Russell Poole and many others were perfect so you can tell the cast was good chosen.

I can really text a lot, but you should watch it if you ever were interested in Biggie's and Pac's homicides. I MENTION THIS IS NOT ABOUT THEIR WHOLE MUSIC CAREER. They still show enough scenes about their music careee and a lot of background stuff, but it's balanced with those investigations from the early 90's and 06.
