In honor of The Notorious B.I.G.'s 44th birthday, Director Aristotle Torres has revisited the rapper's celebrated 1997 single "I Got A Story To Tell" in film. The song details Biggie's intimate relationship with an acquaintance who was at the time married to a New York Knicks player. As always, the implication of an extramarital affair led to years-long, widespread speculation. The film's timing is especially ironic considering Fat Joe recently revealed the identity of the Knicks player Biggie was allegedly referring to.
Torres wrote and directed the project, and cast Yeezy Season notable Amina Blue in the starring role of lady stepping out on her husband. Broadway star Ade Otukoya plays the character of Wallace (Blue's longtime friend and confidante), while fellow Broadway actor Delano Barbosa plays the married basketball star. Lastly, Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg steps into the role of radio commentator.
Drama, intrigue, love triangles and Biggie – not a bad way to spend a Wednesday.
