Movie Details

In the world of hip-hop, honor and loyalty are paramount. Perhaps nowhere in the contemporary urban music scene are these sentiments more evident than in the story of the late Notorious B.I.G.. On March 9, 1997 - two weeks before his final album Life After Death shot to the top of the charts - Notorious B.I.G. was shot and killed. In the wake of Notorious B.I.G.'s death, his manager D-Roc signed Lil' Kim and Junior Mafia. Later, when gunfire broke out at Hot 97 in New York City, Lil' Kim and D-Roc were sent to prison and their friend were labeled "snitches" by the hip hop community. Now, in a documentary detailing the "Golden Age" of New York hip hop, fans can witness interviews with Jay-Z, Diddy, The Lox, and more in addition to viewing actual footage of the Hot 97 shootout and hearing the recollections of D-Roc - who had previously refused to discuss the event. Jamie Hector of HBO's The Wire hosts a program that no hip hop fan will want to miss. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
