When Biggie is free-styling, Lil Kim is first seen with her mole on the left side of her face. The mole changes sides on her face abruptly between shots; when it cuts back to Biggie rapping and back to her, it switches to the right side of her face. The next time we see Kim again, the mole is now back on the left side of her face. See more »

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
