Its coming, not without controversy... Premiered already in NYC... Am looking forward to this film...

'He was beloved by many, worshiped by more when he was gunned on the streets of Los Angeles. Now, some 11 years later after his death, director George Tillman Jr. and studio Fox Searchlight will attempt to resurrect the legend that was Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace (aka Biggie Small). The highly anticipated bio-pic, Notorious, follows his days on the rough streets of Brooklyn to his supreme reign on the hip-hop charts. Featuring newcomer Jamal Woolard, a fellow rapper who goes by the name “Gravy”, as Notorious B.I.G. So uncanny was his transformation into character that friends and family of Biggie Small would walked out during the filming process, for Woolard’s likeness still invoked deep emotions among those who knew Small.' via
Lil Kim isnt happy with the portrayal of her in it though...
Kim's people released the following statement on her behalf:
"The film studio and producers involved were more concerned about painting me as a 'character' to create a more interesting story line instead of a person with talent, self-respect and who was able to achieve her own career success through hard work… Even though my relationship with Big was at times very difficult and complicated (as with most relationships we have all experienced at one time or another), it was also genuine and built on great admiration and love for each other. Regardless of the many lies in the movie and false portrayal of me to help carry a story line through, I will still continue to carry his legacy through my hard work and music."
