With a major Hollywood biopic in the works, Big Poppa is gonna get a lot of scrutiny in 08, eleven years after his tragic death. But Notorious, directed by George Tillman Jr. (Men of Honor), has apparently taken off on shaky grounds, from the fruitless cross-country street auditions to find a Biggie lookalike to critics of the script calling it dry and uninspired, the whole project seems to be far removed from the rapper’s true spirit.
Rap Phenomenon, a documentary shot with biggie’s own camera and by members of his crew, will offer a more intimate look at the rap star. Uncut and uncensored, it follows biggie on his first tour and takes us a step closer to the man rather than the myth. [Via: Nah Right]
