Bad news for everyone looking forward to A&E’s documentary Biggie: The Life of The Notorious B.I.G. and the limited series Who Killed Tupac?  Y’all gonna have to wait a tad bit longer.

The programs were set to premier on June 28 and June 29, respectively, but Biggie has been pushed back to September 4 while Tupac’s series is slated for a fourth quarter of 2017 debut.

We know you may feel you’ve seen every kind of street DVD and even a feature film on Biggie’s life, A&E’s documentary is actually the first biography to be authorized by Big’s estate. Reportedly, the focus will be on his ex-wife Faith Evans as she tries to find closure for the still unsolved murder.

The Life Of The Notorious B.I.G. will also feature interviews with the people who knew Biggie best including Voletta Wallace, Jay-Z, Diddy, Nas, and Lil Cease.

Who Killed Tupac? will go a different route and will make the investigation of the unsolved murder the basis of its six-part series. Each episode will follow civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump as he investigates key theories behind Pac’s Vegas shooting, the lack of due process, and uses those findings to demonstrate it’s relevance in today’s social political movement.

Expect to hear from Pac’s brother Mopreme Shakur, Al Sharpton, E.D.I, and other members of The Outlawz throughout the mini-series.
