For any hip-hop fan, next year’s movie featuring the deceased Christopher Wallace aka The Notorious B.I.G. represents a must-see film as it documents the life and times of some will argue one of the greatest of all time (G.O.A.T.). Rapper Gravy is cast the lead as Biggie Smalls with Derek Luke and Anthony Mackie as Sean Combs and Tupac Shakur respectively
Release date set for January 16th, 2009
It’s been some year for Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter. In the past 12 months, the Brooklyn, N.Y.-born hip-hop demigod released a platinum album, signed a 10-year, $150 million deal with concert promoter Live Nation and tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Beyoncé Knowles. Quite a record. But only good enough for a silver medal.
