On the heels of the motion picture release of Notorious, comes an inside look at the “real” Christopher Wallace in the documentary Biggie Small: Rap Phenomenon. The uncut documentary will come straight to DVD and include home video from Biggie’s close friend D-Roc as well as unseen interviews.
Stephen Bolles, Media Director of Gold Dust Media said this documentary offers a new perspective on the late Hip Hop Icon. “There are a lot of documentaries dealing with the drama of [Biggie’s] life or his beef with the west coast, but this documentary offers an inside look at the real Biggie, on and off stage.”
The documentary features interviews with Biggie as well as appearances by D-Roc, Diddy, Lil Kim, Lil Cease, Jay-Z, L.O.X., Damon Dash, DJ Enuff and Datwon Thomas.
Mr. Bolles said the film offers a complimentary look to Biggie compared to the upcoming motion picture Notorious. "[That film] is the Hollywood take on Biggie's life, whereas [Biggie Small: Rap Phenomenon] is the raw footage; it’s like the two sides of a coin.”
"The DVD will also offer insight into Biggie’s dreams and aspirations as interviews delve into more personal subject matter," Mr. Bolles said.
Biggie Small: Rap Phenomenon is produced by Biggie’s close friend Damion Butler, known to some as D-Roc and directed by April Maiya. The film hits stores January 27, 2009 on Gold Dust Media.
