The life, love, and death of the late rap legend Biggie Smalls, a.k.a. the Notorious B.I.G., is coming to the big screen January 16, 2009 in a biopic titled Notorious. Born in Brooklyn, Biggie rose to fame with the release of his 1994 debut album Ready to Die. While in Los Angeles in 1997 promoting his second album, Life After Death, Biggie was brutally gunned down by an unknown person in a drive-by shooting. Surrounded by conspiracy, his murder still remains unsolved to this day. While at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York where concert scenes were being filmed earlier this year, rapper Lil’ Cease who was a member of the group Junior M.A.F.I.A., Biggie’s protégé group, stated,

“In this movie, you get to see Biggie’s background, it’s bigger than music, you see his personality, you get to see how he treated his kids, how he bonded with his moms, how he treated Junior M.A.F.I.A. It’s something special, something good.”
