In case you've missed it, the trailer for the movie, Notorious, has been out for about a month. The flik, of course, is about The Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie Smalls, who was born Christopher Wallace. He was a famed New York City-based rapper of Jamaican descent. He was gunned down in Las Vegas, Nevada in 1997 - six months after the tragic death of another rapper, the legendary Tupac Shakur.
With Brooklyn rapper Gravy (née Jamal Woolard) playing Biggie and Derek Luke (Miracle at St. Anna) as P. Diddy, 'Notorious' could make the grade. The movie is scheduled to be released on Jan. 16, 2009, and it's release date is not without controversy. 'Notorious' will be released a day after Martin Luther King's birthday.
