The car that is used in the drive-by when Biggie is shot, 2BAI222, is the same plate number that is featured in the first episode of Numb3rs (2005), as well as the same plate number that Ian Watkins, lead singer in the band Lostprophets, uses in the music video for their song "Last Summer" in the car he is driving.

Most of the movie is set around the early to late nineties, when in a majority of scenes; the random cars driving around or parked are contemporary as opposed to the ones from that decade. See more »

Give a nigga head, and no, Ah'll nevuh bite. Sexy-ass lyrics y'know you kinda like. Mic in mah hand, and you'll bet to understand Lil Kim be The Baddest Bitch in Brooklyn.

The Movie was way better then I thought. The actors/actress in it resembled each person in everyway possible. The little kim character was on point even the way she spit those lyrics in the bedroom. According to Naturi Naughton who played the role of little kim she never rapped before but you couldn't tell the way she flowed. When she performed in that lacey outfit towards the end you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between her and kim. The biggie character played by gravy was also on point as well. The voice, build and complexion was spot on. When the faith character sung "I remember" I couldn't believe how great she sang, and it didn't look like she was lip sycn-ing at all. I really enjoyed the movie and it brought me back to those great times in college when I was hooping for Suny Farmingdale.
I was disappointed about one thing and that was the drama aspect. Nothing surprised me about it, because everything in the movie we already knew. It wasn't one thing in the movie that left anything to the imagination. It was very predictable because I already knew he sold drugs, he went to jail, then got discovered by puffy, he blew up, then he died. So probably 15 minutes into the movie I pretty much knew what would happen next. I still loved it and the music in it.
