When Biggie is free-styling, Lil Kim is first seen with her mole on the left side of her face. When it cuts back to Biggie rapping and back to her, it switches to the right side of her face. Again it cuts back to her after Biggie is seen rapping and the mole is back on the left side of her face. See more »
Mr. Webber? Yesterday you said I was gonna end up a garbageman.
That's right. If you keep cutting class, that's exactly what you'll become.
Well, I found out a teacher makes 24,000 a year, and a garbageman makes 28,000 a year. I'm gonna make $4,000 more than his dumb ass.

MY girlfriend and I went to see this opening night and I was a little worried about the director and first time actor Jamal Woolard but it turned out to be a great film. Now i am a Biggie fan so you may think this is biased but it was a well done movie and showed you the life of biggie and how he made it. There is a couple things that i thought were not so good about the movie like go more in depth his younger years so we learn more about him and also go deeper into the feud with him and pac. But other than that Jamal Woolard gave a great performance as well as the rest of the cast. Now my girlfriend doesn't even like rap and she liked this movie so i would suggest it to anyone. I am surprised about the bad rating but i guess people hate on the best rapper of all time too much lol
