Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell, a documentary about the life of late rapper Notorious Big, is finally coming to Netflix.

So, when is the release date for Notorious Big’s documentary on Netflix?
Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell on Netflix
Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell comes from the rapper’s mother Voletta Wallace and Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs who are the executive producers behind the project.
The documentary celebrates the life and work of Notorious Big, revealing details and stories from his childhood, as well as how he rose to stardom.
Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell will feature rare behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with Biggie’s family and close friends.
Netflix: Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell release date
- The documentary premieres on Netflix on March 1st.
The first trailer for Netflix: Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell arrived on Monday, February 15th following the documentary’s initial announcement back in 2017.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, director Emmett Malloy explained:
“The running joke about documentary films is often how long they take to make. This film lived up to all those stereotypes, taking us four years to develop and make it.
“Through those years we were immersed in Brooklyn in the 70s through the 90s. It is easy to see how much Brooklyn has changed since Christopher Wallace was a kid, but it’s also clear that many things about being a young black man in this country have not changed.”
Diddy and D-Roc talk about the documentary
Following the first trailer release, Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs took to Instagram to share a message about the upcoming documentary.
“This documentary celebrates his life and legacy in a way the world has never seen before,” Diddy wrote. “My brother D Roc @invisiblebully_ I’m proud of you King!!!!!!!! It was an honor to executive produce this alongside.”
Biggie’s close friend D-Roc added via Invisible Bully’s Instagram page: “For many years I was apprehensive about sharing my video footage because it’s so personal to me. This documentary is different, it’s an origin story that I’m happy to be a part of alongside.”
