The film is described as “inspirational and a fan favourite” and follows the Bad Boy team as it prepares for their 20th anniversary. It traces the label’s history from its emergence in Harlem and Brooklyn, explores the tragic killing of legendary rapper Biggie Smalls, and “celebrates Bad Boy’s influence in reshaping music, fashion, marketing and culture.”
Sean Coombes said: “I always knew that Can’t Stop Won’t Stop was a special film and the overwhelming response from fans confirms it. The Bad Boy story continues to inspire people all over the world and will for generations to come.”
Several songs from the label’s back catalogue have risen in the iTunes store on the back of the documentary’s success.
