The Nike Sportswear Cinema Tuesday Series started 2009 in a big way this Tuesday by showing a special advanced screening of the much anticipated film NOTORIOUS directed by George Tillman Jr., about the legendary hip hop artist Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace. This screening was definitely the place to be on Tuesday night ( Flo Rida, Macy Gray, and even Sharon Stone were there!), and thanks to the good people at Nike Sportswear M.I.S.S. Crew was in attendance
Presented in conjunction with URB Magazine, the evening started off with DJ sets by MC Lyte and DJ Smiles Davis playing hip hop classics setting the mood and getting the crowd ready to watch the film. NOTORIOUS tells the story about the remarkable rise and all-too-short career of “The Notorious B.I.G.” Jamal Woolard’s portrayal of Biggie shows his journey from Brooklyn street hustler to one of hip hops most talented and successful rappers.
Set against a backdrop of some of the Notorious B.I.G.’s greatest hits and including characters such as Puffy, Lil’ Kim, Faith Evans, and Tupac, this film is a definite must see! NOTORIOUS will be released in theaters this Friday January 16th.
