Being a Brooklyn kid only 2 years younger than the Notorious B.I.G. would have been if he was still alive, I’m looking forward to the premiere of the movie “Notorious” in January. The trailer, which you can find here only increases my excitment.
I’ve gotta take my hat off-it looks like the folks behind the movie did a good job. Gravy isn’t exactly a Biggie lookalike, but he got the voice and mannerisms down pat. Angela Bassett was a great choice as Voletta, Biggie’s mother, but I don’t hear an accent in her voice, and anyone who’s heard Ms. Wallace speak knows that she has a heavy, aristocratic Jamaican accent befitting her career as a schoolteacher. Hell, even the chick who plays Faith looks ridiculously similar to the actual Faith.
Anyway, check the trailer out and let us know if you like what you see.
