I saw the Notorious movie about him not too long ago. It was pretty solid overal, not sure of how accurate it was, but a good watch overall.

I really liked the film. I was prepared to be hyper critical of it and ended up walking out feeling they captured his life perfectly. They didn't gloss over really anything. The only real fallacy is the Who Shot Ya scene. It didn't happen like that. That actually happened in the UK, not LA. I believe he did sing it in LA, but the look of it is from a UK performance. Even that is minor.

Good to hear. The movie cam off pretty genuine, and I didn't see it when it was released in theaters because I too was skeptical of it. I hear they're making a Tupac movie now as well.

I really need to go back and listen to his music again sometime, it's been a while. Anyone ever seen Notorious? Not sure if it was accurate or not, but I thought it was a great biopic film.

Yes. Seen it countless times. As someone who would be very critical of a film about him, I thought it was great. They did a great job with it.

Here is Robert Ebert’s review of it. https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/notorious-2009

Just finished watching Unsolved: The murders of Tupac and The Notorious BIG on Netflix. Based on the BIG and Tupac investigation. Probably the best show about the two I've ever seen. It's 10 episodes.

Netflix has some good murder docs so sign me up.
