Showing the History of 90's Hip-Hop in the funnest way possible!
OK, I'll admit it. I love "The Notorious B.I.G". I, and many others see him as the king of Hip-hop/Rap. This movie really glorifies Biggie as well. First I'll talk about the main man himself, Jamal Woolard as Christopher"Biggie"Wallace. I know this is his first time acting in anything, and fair play to him. But Woolard does a really good job as Biggie Smalls. He brings every last detail off him to the screen. He's a jerk, but likable and funny. He did a great job and did some amazing rap scenes too.(e.g., "Juicy","Party and Bull", "Warning") This was an amazing movie too watch. I was only a baby in the 90's so I new nothing off this at the time. It really captured you in the feeling of how cool it was too live in this time. One thing I would have to disagree with other posters. Anthony Mackie did a great job as 2Pac. Yeah! He wasn't supposed to bring that much emotion to him. He was only a supporting character! It wasn't his movie. He only acted the way 2Pac did in those moments he came across Biggie. And he did a good job. He was charismatic . In those scenes. The one that really stood out for me was the actress who played Lil Kim. She was very impressive and one of the most well-cast characters in the movie. She was powerful and aggressive. Overall I loved this movie and I could watch it again and again. One off the years best so far. 9/10
