The trailer introduces the Torres family comprising Carlos (Ramírez), Allison (Garner) and their three kids — Katie (Ortega), Nando (Julian Lerner), and Ellie (Everly Carganilla).

Little did they know that they'd be going on a whirlwind adventure around Los Angeles, that would bring the family closer to each other than ever before," the streamer describes the film.

"Biggie blew up overnight. You have no origins from what rap planet this guy came from," Diddy says in the trailer, charting his meteoric rise and tragic crash landing, through pictures and archival footage.

"Every legend has an origin story. Christopher Wallace, AKA The Notorious B.I.G., remains one of Hip-Hop’s icons, renowned for his distinctive flow and autobiographical lyrics. This documentary celebrates his life via rare behind-the-scenes footage and the testimonies of his closest friends and family," the trailer description on YouTube says.
