As we’ve seen in recent hip-hop biopics like All Eyez on Me and Straight Outta Compton, intense public scrutiny comes with reviving such beloved artists as Shakur and Wallace. That pressure was magnified with Unsolved’s examination of the LAPD’s often maligned investigations that failed to provide any resolution and is something the entire production has been well aware of since the start.

“I think everybody on this show from top to bottom really just wants this to feel authentic and do right by Tupac, Biggie, their families and, by the way, the police department,” said Duhamel. “You know, they’re not as bad as they were made out to be and these detectives gave everything they had to bring justice to the families of Tupac and Biggie. And that’s really what I think the objective of the show is.”

Actors Rose and Jonez were studious in their approaches to embody these legends, watching endless hours of interviews and appearances online, eating the foods they ate, reading the books they read and wearing the cologne they wore. Rose, 25 — who came to the project after playing Shakur in a small role in Straight Outta Compton — got onset advise from Shakur’s brother, Mopreme Shakur, and picked up smoking cigarettes to better imitate Shakur’s raspy voice. Jonez would go back to his apartment and just live in his Biggie role.

HipHopWired was fortunate to visit the set of Unsolved last year during filming, speaking with some of the actors and director Anthony Hemingway, who all were gracious with their time and welcomed the challenge of telling such a difficult story.

The up-close view of the studio set and the magic of filmmaking happening before us and other members of the press was an impressive showing of creative energy.

I just watched the first episode last night.  It's actually done pretty fucking well.  Interested to see where the rest of the series goes.

This series is great, why nobody's talking about that  ???
I've seen the first 2 episodes and loved them, if you confront 2Pac's death scene between AEOM and Unsolved you'll see how wack that movie was.

I tried to give AEOM a fair shot, but man the smoke in that death scene looked like some 8th grade final project shit.

And this Unsolved show is surprisingly good. Cant wait to see the rest.

Funny I posted about this way before this post and no one cared.

Anyway, don't get your 2pac panties in a bunch yet. There's a new movie being made about this called LAbyrinth based on the book. Johnny Depp (yeah not Tommy Wiseau) is playing the lead Poole.

Depp should come hard as he's on real drugs, a drunk and his acting is RAW!!

It's on IMDB.
