Life After Death: The Movie

More than a decade after the death of one of hip-hop’s most legendary emcees, his best friend, D-Roc, is putting out this special DVD to honor the memory of his fallen friend. Currently imprisoned due to his indictment in the Hot 97 shootout with Lil’ Kim back a couple years ago, D-Roc is releasing this special “Life After Death: The Movie” DVD to let the world see a side of Notorious B.I.G. that they’ve never seen before.

With personal and private video footage of the iconic New York rapper, D-Roc brings you an exclusive presentation that no Biggie fan can miss. The first ever DVD documentary of its kind, you’ll see Notorious B.I.G. like never before and hear from all the people around him why he was so special. With appearances from Lil’ Kim, Diddy, Jay-Z, The Lox and Mase, you’ll hear about B.I.G. from the people that knew him best. This is a DVD you’ll watch over and over. We’ll Always Love Big Poppa.

FROM THE BACK OF THE DVD: The Notorious B.I.G. was shot and killed on March 9, 1997; two weeks later his album Life After Death was released and went on to sell over 18 million records. Ten years later, “Life After Death: The Movie” chronicles the music family he left behind from 1997-2007 in an epic story of friendship and betrayal. After B.I.G.‘s death, his right hand man, D-Roc manages Lil’ Kim and Junior Mafia through a decade of triumph and tragedy as they live, work, and travel the world together ending with the infamous Hot 97 New York City radio station shootout that landed Lil’ Kim and D-Roc in Federal Prison and labeled their former friends as “snitches.”

This true story is told solely from unseen home video footage from the crew and takes us through the ‘Golden Age’ of New York hip-hop with archive footage of hip-hop’s biggest stars, from Notorious B.I.G., Diddy, The Lox, Mase, Jay-Z and more. This DVD includes personal footage of the Hot 97 shootout and an end-all exclusive interview with D-Roc, who refused to testify in Lil’ Kim’s perjury trial for his alleged involvement in the shootout. Until now, he had declined to be interviewed, but on this DVD, he gives a detailed account of the incident and the fallout.

Narrated by Jamie Hector of the HBO series The Wire, this is a must-see documentary about honor and loyalty for every hip-hop fan worldwide.
