Flick In A Limerick,

Christopher Wallace better known as Notorious
Makes it out of the struggle becoming victorious
Documented life and times
Of his life and his rhymes
Leaving behind a legacy that glorious

The Big Finish

Of all the movies I have seen on the notorious one this is by far the best. Reason being is that this piece did not focus so much on Bigs music, beefs and untimely death. Don’t get me wrong it is always great to relive all of the highlights from Bigs illustrious career changing the hip hop game forever. This film however offers an alternative providing viewers a behind the scenes glimpse into the rappers personal life with stories from those that knew him personally. For every generation the story needs to be retold in a way that is relevant for that specific time period. The angles on the interviews were well shot. Sean “P.Diddy” Combs is charismatic in whatever he does. Bigs mom Voletta Wallace is precious and getting an opportunity to hear from Bigs grandmother Gwendolyn for once is also a welcomed sight. Damion “D-Roc” Butler once sacrificed his livelihood so the world could have his friend Big and years later he continues to do the same. Bigs passion, skill and cultural impact continue to live on by relentlessly passing down the legend.
