Veteran actors Forest Whitaker and Johnny Depp are the latest folks to take a closer look at the controversy and mystery surrounding the shocking 1997 assassination of rap icon The Notorious B.I.G..
A new movie, ‘City Of Lies’, delves into the years-long investigation by former LAPD detective Russell Poole in his effort to try to solve Biggie’s murder. Depp plays Det. Poole in the film, who is aided by a journalist played by Whitaker.
Some have pointed to a cover-up in the still-unsolved homicide, which took the life of one of rap’s top music stars. No one was ever charged in Big’s murder.
Poole died of a heart attack in 2015.
City Of Lies is set to hit theaters September 7.
