| Talented artist but also a great human being
I'm not an expert on the genre, but imo, Biggie Smalls is the most talented rapper every.

The documentary was good. Nostalgic for me. A lot of video that I've never seen.

But I just want to mention something else and you can read it if you want or skip it.

When I was young the two best rappers were Biggie and 2 Pac. 2 Pac was also massively talented, too. However, Biggie was also a good person and 2 Pac wasn't.

Biggie actually lived the life of a street hustler, but when he made it big he wanted to leave that nonsense behind, and not only that, he also took all his friends with him. Got all them off of the street too. Just a great human being. The world is a worse place without him.

Now, 2 Pac didn't really live that life before he started making money. When he made it big the only thing he wanted to do was try to become a gangster. And he more or less accomplished it by hooking up with some of the biggest scumbags he could find and becoming the worst possible person he could be.

When he was in NYC he tried connecting with criminals and rolled around the city like he was a gangster but he wasn't. So, some real gangsters decided to rob him and his I guess his pride got hurt. So, he ran to the West like a little girl and started all that dumb East vs West nonsense that he made up.

You could say it sold me records but I don't think so. The records would have sold anyway because the music was good.

In summary, Biggie was an actual hustler that made it big and got out of the life because he was a good person and actually knew what it was like to have nothing and to have to hustle to eat. He knew how horrible that life can be.

2 Pac was a wannabe gangster and a scumbag.
