Biggie & Tupac is a 2002 feature-length documentary film about rap icons Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur, made by Nick Broomfield. The soundtrack includes "Notorious B.I.G." by The Notorious B.I.G., which samples Duran Duran's "Notorious".

About the filmEdit

The film investiges the deaths of the two icons Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur, which some people claimed were orchestrated by Suge Knight, head of Death Row Records. It is much to the credit of this film that the investigation into the death of Christopher Wallace has since been re-opened. While the movie remains inconclusive, when asked "Who killed Tupac?" in a BBC Radio interview dated March 7, 2005, Broomfield stated (quoting Snoop Dogg) "The big guy next to him in the car... Suge Knight."
