Wasn't Stallone supposed to be involved in this at some point?

It doesn't really look good but I bet it does well at the box office.

Didn't think this was a remake of the Hitch classic.

So aside from making songs about murder and raping women, will this make him out to be a saint?

He certainly wouldn't be the first or the last artist to delve into the subject of murder. Ever listen to Johnny Cash? As far as raping women, I don't recall any of his lyrics dealing with non-censensual sex.

Re: Notorious (Tillman, 2009) - Biggie bio w/ trailer

From Variety review:
Skim off all the visual bling, and "Notorious" is a rock-solid biopic with a foolproof rise-and-fall storyline and a warmly nuanced performance by Jamal Woolard as iconic rapper Christopher Wallace -- aka Biggie Smalls, aka the Notorious B.I.G. Less interested in the particulars of Smalls' 1997 slaying than in his growth and influence as an artist, the pic has a propulsive narrative drive.

As far as I know, no.

From "Dead Wrong":

Smack the bitch in the face;
take her Gucci bag and the North Face
off her back, jab her if she act
funny with the money oh you got me mistaken honey
I don't wanna rape ya, I just want the paper
The Visa, kapeesha? I'm out like, "The Vapors"

Did anyone else laugh when they said "greatest rapper of all time" in the tv spot?

Lil' Kim is upset with the director for making her seem like a gold-digging bitch ....

...

Am I missing something here?

Of course not. What's funny about the truth? The only comparable MC is Rakim.

Sorry but Nas is far superior to Biggie.
