… After Watching Notorious
In an attempt to protect the decency and reputation of such a remarkable talent I am making a public service announcement that should be taken quite serious: DO NOT WATCH â€œNOTORIOUS.â€
If you want to learn about Biggie Smalls listen to his classic debut, â€œReady to Die,â€ watch YouTube videos, look him up on Wiki, ask your hip-hop friend but whatever you do, donâ€™t watch this movie. You know how the movie is never as good as the book? Well, â€œReady to Dieâ€ is Biggieâ€™s book and â€œNotoriousâ€ is some inadequate jerks horrible attempt at interpreting that.
This movie is a joke, it is one of the worst representations of an artist to ever hit the big scream. The acting is bland, unbelievable, passionless and inaccurate. The screen play could have been done by a child and the musical recreations are nothing short of disgraceful. The Notorious B.I.G. was an integral part of hip-hop, one itâ€™s premier ambassadors. Anyone choosing to take on that responsibility should do so with a very clear understanding of whatâ€™s at hand. To think that some curious moviegoers and youth will be seeing this in hopes of learning about Biggie is saddening. If you know anything about Biggie, donâ€™t watch this movie, you will be scard for life.
How do you make a lame movie based on one of the coolest cats to ever grace rap music, I donâ€™t know but congratulations to executive producer Sean Combs, you did just that. Hip-hop on hip-hop crime.
Now letâ€™s all just listen to some music and forget this movie ever happened…
