We have plenty of information about the idea of the Notorious B.I.G., but Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell offers a rare look at the actual human being behind the legend.

March 3, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

I Got a Story to Tell is essential viewing, provided that you're the kind of person who can rap the first verse of "Hypnotize" from memory. You come away wishing B.I.G. could've dreamed bigger.

March 3, 2021 | Full Review…

There's enough good, previously unseen stuff in Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell to make it an easy recommendation, though seeing and hearing stuff you haven't seen before isn't the same as learning a lot of things you didn't know before.

Too many rhymes that we've heard before.

March 1, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Despite the title, "I Got a Story to Tell" is primarily concerned with all the tales that went untold.

This Netflix release is the first to successfully sidestep the quicksand of murder mystery, and focus instead on what Wallace accomplished in life.
