Biopic of the tragic life of Christopher Wallace, otherwise known as the American rapper Notorious BIG. Directed by George Tillman Jr, the story traces the life of Wallace (Jamal Woolard) as he fights his way up through the mean streets of Brooklyn, transforming himself in the space of a few years from a hustling nobody into one of the most influential rap artists of his generation. As his influence on hip hop grows, a fierce rivalry develops between his New York brand of rap and that of the Los Angeles-based rapper Tupac Shakur (Anthony Mackie), a feud that will have tragic consequences for all involved.
