Making this the ideal time for a new show to focus on the unsolved deaths of two of America's biggest and most influential rappers ever, Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. Deadline reports that Wavvy Jonez will play Biggie and Marcc Rose will play Tupac. Rose also portrayed 'Pac in a very brief scene in Straight Outta Compton.

For Jonez, "Unsolved" marks the acting debut for the rapper who was discovered during a nation-wide casting call for the part.

U.S. reveals Tupac & Biggie casting choices for "Unsolved: The Murders of Biggie & Tupac". Biggie Smalls, aka Christopher Wallace, quickly went from honor student to drug dealer to the face of East Coast rap. In 2011, Kading authored Murder Rap: The Untold Story of the Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations. His murder also remains unsolved today. The 24-year-old, who hails from Brooklyn, NY, is repped by ICM Partners. Of the hundreds of hopefuls that submitted, Jonez's video audition captured the attention of casting directors and Emmy Award®-winning director Anthony Hemingway.

Rose and Jonez join previously announced cast members Josh Duhamel as Detective Kading, Jimmi Simpson as Detective Russell Poole and Bokeem Woodbine as Officer Daryn Dupree. Hemingway will exec produce along with Mark Taylor and Kyle Long, who wrote the pilot. He also consulted on the script and co-executive produce the pilot.
