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 »

Surprisingly good
11 March 2018 | by nickdnkSee all my reviews

I watched this with some skepticism since many attempts at Biggie and Tupac have failed miserably in the past, most recently the Tupac movie - but this is really good. The cast is great and the show has incredible historical detail. Important parts are told with a mix of new shots with actors and homevideos and photos of the actual events from 96 and 97. I had goosebumps on quite a few occasions. Definitely worth a watch, even for people who don't have any interest in the music or icons that are Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.
