According to Billboard, Apple’s streaming music service will have the exclusive rights to the documentary, which it will begin being showing to subscribers starting June 25.
“I went to the [Bad Boy Reuion] concert and thought it was incredible,” Jimmy Iovine, Apple Music chairman and CEO, tells Billboard. “I think Puff and Bad Boy’s story is incredible and one that a lot of people can relate to in any genre or in any business. His story is powerful. He really overcame a lot to get to where he’s at today and the documentary shows that.”
