Update : Gangs All Here

Jamal "Gravy" Woolard

It's Official The cast of the long awaited Notorious B.I.G bio-pic has been announced. After looking at the likes of Beanie Sigel, Guerilla Black and even Sean Kingston (what?!) Producers, along with Biggie's mother have decided on Jamal Woolard AKA fellow Brooklyn rapper Gravy (Top Left). Those of you familiar with Gravy remember that he was shot after recording an interview with Funkmaster Flex at Hot 97 last year. Rounding out the cast includes Derek Luke (Antwone Fisher, Glory Road) as Diddy, Anthony Mackie (Papa Doc from 8mile, Ruffin from We are Marshall) as Tupac, The beautiful and ageless Angela Bassett as the late rappers mother Voletta Wallace. Naturi Naughton (3lw) has also been signed to play an unspecified role at the time (possibly Lil' Kim?). Filming for the movie starts this month in the NYC so keep a look out. It is being directed by George Tillman (Chi Town Stand up!) who directed
Barbershop 1&2 as well as Soul Food and a host of others.
