Notorious Movie & Soundtrack 09'

notorious soundtrack album cover

Coming January 16th, 2009 is the new movie Notorious which is a biopic featuring the story of Christopher "BIG" Wallace's life and death. According to IMDB, there's no rappers playing themselves in this one, it's all actors and actresses taking the roles of Lil' Kim, Lil Cease, Puffy Combs and Suge Knight. Faith Evans and Tupac Shakur are also part of the story, as they should be. Playing the role of Christopher Wallace, The Notorious BIG, will be Jamal Woolard (Brooklyn rapper "Gravy"). Woolard's only other film on his acting resume is 2006's "The Come Up" a documentary featuring various rappers, where Woolard appeared as himself. Woolard has another claim to fame. He was shot in the rear outside the Hot 97 radio station just moments before he went upstairs and gave an interview to Funk Flex. Don't expect any Oscar-type role here, but Woolard definitely has the size and similar look for the part. (Read more about Woolard at Reuters article)

As for the Notorious Soundtrack, it features some of BIG's greatest hits, unreleased tracks, remixes and new songs from Bone Thugs N Harmony, Jadakiss and Jay-Z. Jay-Z's Brooklyn Go Hard has already been leaked and in heavy circulation online. The track's produced by Kanye West and features Santogold as well. LOX member and BIG friend, Jadakiss, has an open letter to his deceased friend in "Letter to B.I.G.". The track was originally slated for Jadakiss' "Last Kiss" album but instead included for the movie. There's also a new version of "One More Chance" which features the late BIG's son, CJ, and BIG's widow Faith Evans appears on several tracks as well.
