Review

Nick Broomfield has already looked into the deaths of rap superstars Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur once, with his 2001 documentary Biggie & Tupac. But he has good reason now to revisit the murders that defined the rivalries at the heart of the 1990s hip-hop scene. Broomfield gave credence to the theories of former LAPD detective Russell Poole, who pointed a finger both at his old police colleagues and at Death Row Records boss Suge Knight. 

Broomfield and Poole were heavily criticised at the time, but now Broomfield has new evidence that could exonerate Poole, who died in 2015. Along the way he re-examines the staggering extent to which the LA rap scene was once fatally entangled with violent, vengeful gang culture.
