Nick Broomfield, the “British stalkumentarian and pop culture muckraker” (J. Hoberman), adds to his canon of tabloid investigative journalism (Kurt & Courtney, Heidi Fleiss: Hollywood Madam) by probing the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Christopher “the Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace. Broomfield posits that Suge Knight, the then-CEO of Death Row Records, ordered the death of Tupac, who was preparing to jump labels, and then sanctioned the hit on Wallace (Tupac’s East Coast rival) to divert attention from himself. Broomfield further indicts the LAPD for culpability in the cover-up. The eccentric conspiracy-theorist-cum-filmmaker, England’s answer to Columbo, uses tactics that beggar description to procure the damning footage—including a visit to the prison where parole violator Knight was serving time, scoring an impromptu interview!
