Storyline

Suge Knight the former CEO of legendary rap music label Death Row Records was recently sentenced to 28 years imprisonment for manslaughter and other violent crimes not typically associated with a highly successful record executive. This film takes a look at Death Row and how L.A.’s street gang culture had come to dominate its business workings. When Tupac Shakur was in prison for sexual abuse, he was an artist signed with Interscope. But it was Suge Knight and Death Row Records, a subsidiary of Interscope, that would come to his rescue and offer Tupac a record deal in exchange for his freedom. This resulted in Tupac taking a gang allegiance with Mob Piru and with Suge Knight he fully embraced that world. The association with Mob Piru would end up being the cause of his death only 11 months later when Tupac was murdered in a drive by shooting. The film also looks at the allegation of former LAPD detective Russel Poole that the reprisal killing of Biggie Smalls, a retaliation to the murder of Tupac, was commissioned by Suge Knight with the help of corrupt LAPD officers who were moonlighting at Death Row Records.

About the director

Nick Broomfield (1948)  studied law, political science and directing. At age 23, he made his first film on the liquidation of Liverpool slums using a borrowed camera. He produced numerous important titles with his former wife, director Joan Churchill. His storytelling has developed from classic direct cinema, influenced by the films of Wiseman and Leacock, to Broomfield's own characteristic style that blends experimental film with an investigative documentary. During his forty-year-long career he has directed over thirty documentaries, including Tattooed Tears (1978), Heidi Fleiss: Hollywood Madam (1995), Kurt & Courtney (1998), Driving Me Crazy (1988), Biggie and Tupac (2002), Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer (2003), Battle for Haditha (2007), Sarah Palin: You Betcha! (2011), Sex: My British Job (2013), Tales of the Grim Sleeper (2014) and Whitney: Can I Be Me (2017)
