Look what we have here. Another debate surrounding music biopics. What can we say? Music biopics are a topic that really gets the people going. Oftentimes conversations surrounding what's considered to be the "best," relies heavily on box office numbers along with what's been rated the highest by the critics. While those factors can come to play, what often gets lost in the conversation are those excellent biopics that didn't receive the highest numbers, reviews, and stats, and if we're keeping it real, unfortunately a sizable percentage of those specific biopics were those that were based on artists of color. So today, we're going to do an all-inclusive list of the best music biopics of all time that are based solely on the art, artist, and the talented figures that portrayed them. From Hip Hop biopics like Straight Outta Compton which was about Ice Cube and the N.W.A gang, all the way to the heavily-debated upon Bohemian Rhapsody biopic based on Freddie Mercury and Queen, we consider these to be the best to date.
With plenty more on the way, we anticipate we'll be having to update this list sooner rather later. If in the meantime you are looking for a more general list of biopics, you can check that out here.
