Customers who bought this item also bought
Biggie & Tupac is a no holds barred investigation into the still unsolved murders of two of the biggest superstars rap has ever produced; Christopher Wallace, aka Biggie Smalls, and Tupac Shakur. Answering the crusading calls for justice from Biggie's mother Voletta, Nick Broomfield hits the streets from East Coast to West Coast, putting his own life at risk as he uncovers sensational new evidence that points directly to the involvement of the LAPD and imprisoned Death Row records co-founder Marion 'Suge' Knight in the violent slayings that shocked the hip hop world.

It would be an exaggeration to say that Nick Broomfield solved the murders of Biggie and Tupac. Nonetheless, he makes a convincing case as to who the perpetrators were and why they weren't brought to justice. Broomfield (Kurt and Courtney), who narrates and appears on camera, comes across like a scruffy Robin Leach, but he's done his homework and sniffs out the clues with the tenacity of a bloodhound. Time and again, he refuses to be intimidated--even when his life appears to be at stake. Fortunately, he was able to convince Voletta Wallace, beloved mother of Biggie Smalls (a.k.a. the Notorious B.I.G.), to cooperate, and that opened many doors. Unfortunately, Afeni Shakur, Tupac's mother, refused to participate or to allow access to his music. She had nothing to fear. Broomfield is fair to both rappers, although the soundtrack is all-Biggie. Easily one of the most fascinating documentaries of 2002. --Kathleen C. FennessySee all Editorial Reviews

This is by far his masterpiece!
Anyone who enjoys the documentary style should see this. It's truly a work of art!
In typical Broomfield style, he pushes his way through people and places that most of us would never even consider going to, never mind having extra body-guards! Having lost a camera-man in what's described as self-preservation, Nick continues his quest for answers.
Great quality print, excellent sound-track, very nice extras and an absolutely fantastic movie that really forces people to see how corrupt real life really is. Check it out!
