This doc was as joyful as it was heartbreaking. I know I said there wouldn’t be murder on this list, and that technically this doc breaks that rule because Biggie was murdered. But that’s not what the essence of this doc is about — there’s no grizzly details or disturbing imagery here. It’s about Biggie’s life and the joy he brought to the world. 

This doc offers a better understanding of who he really was as opposed to the urban legends around him. It also sets the record straight about the so-called “beef” between him and fellow rapper Tupac. I spoke to the director about how the documentary explains that the rumored feud between them was overblown. Watch if you love Biggie’s music and music history.
