    “In the words of the Notorious B.I.G, spread love, it’s the Brooklyn WAY”- Borough President Marty Markowitz as he presented the Wallace family with a official citation in the honor of Christoper ‘Notorious B.I.G.’ Wallace.

    That statementĀ  summed up the entire night as hundreds of Biggie Smalls fans, supporters and friends, celebrated his life at the NOTORIOUS premiere. The cast of the biopic as well as Biggie’s family and friends, joined the public and media alike for the Brooklyn screening of the movie. Eleven years after his tragic murder , the movie will forever immortalize the life of Brooklyn’s greatest rapper, The Notorious B.I.G. Everyone involved with the project shared personal experiences with the Biggie, whether it was directly or through the contact of his family and neighborhood friends. Creating the film was a labor of love, Jamal “Gravy” Woodard, had to up his weight to 340 lbs, for his role as “Big Poppa”. Biggie’s mother, Voletta Wallace, discovered a lot of disappointing things about her late son, “If he were here today, I would kick him!” she laughed. She also reached out to Lil Kim, who had spoken out about the negative portrayal of herĀ  in the film. Ms. Wallace called “Ms. Jones” a wonderful woman, and in an Essence magazine interview, expressed dismay of her son’s treatment toward Lil Kim.
    HOT 97 and Mister Cee were of course on sight at the esteemed Brooklyn Academy of Music, as well as celebs and figures like the Rev. Jesse Jackson and rapper Foxy Brown. NOTORIOUS is in movies everywhere Friday, January 16th, don’t miss it!
