“MURDER RAP is an important documentary that demands to be viewed by anyone with even a passing interest in the Hip Hop music of the 1990s. It contains, in my very humble opinion, the most plausible explanation yet presented for why two great artists were taken from their families, friends, and from us, their devoted listeners.”
Two of the most notorious unsolved cases in the history of American crime – the murders of renowned rap stars Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls – have been the subject of exhaustive investigations, relentless speculation, and a web of conspiracy theories and dark secrets. In the 1990’s rap industry, the infamous East Coast vs. West Coast rivalry found music executive Suge Knight and his Los Angeles-based Death Row Records pitted against Sean “Diddy” Combs and his New York-based Bad Boy Records – a rivalry that culminated in the murders of Tupac and Biggie.
Now, for the first time, the true story behind these sensational cases is laid bare in MURDER RAP: Inside the Biggie and Tupac Murders. With shocking revelations sourced from thousands of police case files and taped confessions never before shown on film, along with interviews with lead detective Greg Kading and other witnesses, this is the riveting account of the task force that finally exposed the outrageous truth behind the deaths of these two rap music icons.
Murder Rap: Inside the Biggie and Tupac Murders premieres on iTunes in February 2016 and on Netflix worldwide in Spring 2016. It also premieres on Amazon UK in January. Other upcoming notable dates: The 19th anniversary of Biggie Smalls’ murder is in March, and the 20th anniversary of Tupac’s murder is in September. The film’s grassroots support is exploding with over 21,000 Facebook followers and over 100,000 trailer views.
