Presenting new material and evidence never heard before, this is the definitive story of Suge Knight, the former CEO of legendary rap music label Death Row Records, and the murders of Biggie and Tupac.
Nick Broomfield’s Last Man Standing is the definitive story of Suge Knight, Death Row Records, and the murders of Biggie & Tupac. Suge Knight, the former CEO of legendary rap music label Death Row was recently sentenced to 28 years imprisonment for manslaughter in a long line of violent crimes not typically associated with a highly successful record executive.
Broomfield, who started telling this story with his 2002 doc Biggie and Tupac, re-examines the era, uncovering the extent to which L.A.’s street gang culture dominated Death Row’s business workings, and the label’s association with corrupt LA police officers. It would be this world of gang rivalry and dirty cops that would claim the lives of the world’s two greatest rappers, Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.
People have only now started talking, since Suge commenced his 28-year sentence, and the film comes up with new evidence and shocking testimony showing the involvement of the LAPD in these murders and their attempt to conceal evidence.
