New authorised Notorious BIG documentary announced

By | Published on Wednesday 15 February 2017

A new documentary about Notorious BIG is being made in collaboration with the late rapper’s mother Voletta Wallace. The film will reportedly focus on the impact of his music around the world.

“It brings so much joy to my heart that my son Christopher’s music has made such an impact on the music community and his stories have positively inspired so many young men and women over the years, and are still influencing the youth all over the world today”, said Wallace, according to Variety.

Emmett Malloy, who will direct the film alongside his brother Brendan Malloy, added: “The challenge of making a film about one of the most influential artists of my generation is what I live for as a filmmaker”.

Notorious BIG was killed in a drive-by shooting in 1997, of course. A film of his life, ‘Notorious’, also made with the involvement of Voletta Wallace, was released in 2009 to generally lacklustre reviews.
