DVD Documents Life After Notorious B.I.G.’s Death

Posted By on June 19, 2007

A new film due out this July will tell the story of the aftermath of Notorious B.I.G.'s tragic death from the viewpoint of his friends and group mates.

Life After Death: The Movie reveals the triumphs and trials of Biggie's close friend D-Roc (real name Damion Butler), and his associates, Lil' Kim and Junior M.A.F.I.A., after Biggie's passing. Narrated by Jamie Hector ("The Wire") and directed by April Maiya, the film follows those who were forced to move on after the 1997 shooting, via their own video footage. The film shows friends and group members as they traveled the world enjoying the fruits of their musical success and later documents the crew's unraveling, thanks primarily to the HOT 97 shootout that put Lil' Kim and D-Roc behind bars.

Life After Death: The Movie includes actual footage from the 2001 HOT 97 shootout as well as an exclusive interview with the currently imprisoned D-Roc, who previously refused to testify in Lil Kim's perjury trial and has, until now, never granted an interview on the subject.

The film also features vintage footage of Biggie, C-Gutta, Lil Cease, Diddy, The Lox, Mase and Jay-Z, as well as appearances by Charli Baltimore, Missy, Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, Tommy Lee, Pamela Anderson, Big Pun, Sisqo, Snoop Dogg, Redman, Mario Winans, Karrine "Superhead" Steffans, Mr. Marcus and Anthony "Wolf" Jones.

Life After Death: The Movie hits stores on July 3. For more information visit www.lifeafterdeaththemovie.com or www.rocdarlingfilms.com.
