More than 20 years in the game and Diddy is still outchea making history. The rap mogul has just announced that he will be premiering his documentary, Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: The Bad Boy Story, at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.
Speaking about the honor, Diddy said:
“I am blessed to be introducing our film at the Tribeca Film Festival. Tribeca brings the biggest names in entertainment and culture together with visionaries from across industries to celebrate the power of storytelling. There is no better place to share the story behind the Bad Boy movement and this unprecedented musical event.”
The documentary is supposed to be a comprehensive look at the label, from its humble beginnings in Harlem to its meteoric rise. Obviously, a big portion of the film will be centered on Biggie Smalls, who passed 20 years ago to the day. The movie will conclude with footage from last year’s reunion concert.
The 16th annual Tribeca Film Festival is going to be awesome. The festival will take place from April 19 to April 30, and it will open with the world premiere of the documentary Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives at Radio City Music Hall. Afterward, there will be performances by Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Hudson, Earth, Wind & Fire, and more.
Closing the festival will be a special back-to-back viewing of Godfather and Godfather Part II for the movie’s 45th anniversary. Following the screening, there will be a cast reunion and conversation featuring all the main players, from director Francis Ford Coppola to actors like Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, and Robert De Niro.
Other retrospective films being screened include Aladdin and Reservoir Dogs, two movies celebrating their 25th anniversary. Also being screened is the documentary Bowling for Columbine, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary. For that screening, director Michael Moore will join the festival for a discussion about the movie. (We’re pretty sure other things will be discussed.)
