Based on a true story, Biopics
For anyone into hip-hop, the life of the late Christopher Wallace is already legendary, because Wallace was better known under the name with which he took the world of rap by storm back in the 1990s - Notorious B.I.G. This excellent biopic brings the story of the man many think of as the greatest rapper ever to vivid life - starting out growing up in a tough area of New York and falling into crime, before finding his voice (literally) and stardom. But even as the world was falling under the spell of his rhymes, tragedy was waiting. Newcomer Jamal Woolard delivers a fine performance as "Biggie" in this powerful real life story.
