On September 4, A&E will be premiering its much hyped Notorious B.I.G. documentary, “Biggie: The Life of the Notorious B.I.G.”.
The documentary is a personal and revealing look at the legendary rapper, whose real name was Christopher Wallace, and how he influenced the rap genre.
What sets this film apart from others that have recounted the life and career of Biggie is that this is the first film approved by his estate.
In the trailer for the movie, Nas and JAY-Z are shown rapping along to some of Biggie’s most famous lyrics and note how influential he was in their careers and the rap genre as a whole.
In the movie, the rapper’s widow, Faith Evans, goes on an emotional journey and describes the couple’s relationship. In addition to Evans, JAY-Z and Nas, Biggie’s mother Voletta Wallace, Lil Cease, Junior Mafia, Sean “Diddy” Combs and more take part in remembering Biggie’s life.
