[ # ] Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and The Notorious BIG
February 27th, 2018 under USA Network

Back in the ’90s, Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls were two of the biggest rappers out there. But neither one of them would live to see the decade end. They both were gunned down in drive-by shootings, 6 months apart, and to this day we do not know who did it. Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and The Notorious BIG begins on USA tonight at 10p and it tells the story of how the LAPD tried to solve their murders.

On September 7, 1996, Tupac (Marcc Rose) was shot in the car he was driving in with Suge Knight in Las Vegas. Six days later, he died from his injuries. The shooter sped away and to this day remains a mystery.

Six months later to day after Tupac was shot, his former friend and rival Biggie Smalls (Wavyy Jonez) was gunned down in Los Angeles. His murderer also got away with murder.

Throughout the years there have been a lot of theories of who might have gunned down the stars, some even saying they were both murdered by the same people. Detective Greg Kading (Josh Duhamel) and Detective Russell Poole (Jimmi Simpson) will work both cases separately, sometimes they will be looking at the same people. Other times they will have their own theories.

Poole will look into Death Row Records, Suge Knight and the dirty cops in LAPD who were working for Knight’s label. Kading will be investigating if one of the LA gangs or possibly Puff Daddy might have had a role in it.

The series starts off in 1997 when both Detectives get the case, and it follows their investigation and the lack of help they were getting from the department. But also flashes back to Tupac and Biggie’s lives and what might have lead up to their murders.

There is a lot we didn’t know, and Unsolved answers a lot of questions. So much so that after 7 episodes I’ve seen, I have my own ideas. But the series goes on for 16, so it might change. If you have ever had any interest in their murders, then you are going want to check out this series. I am on the edge of my seat wanting to know more. Plus, the casting department did a great job finding their Tupac, Biggie and Suge. You almost think it is the music legends themselves.
