    @ green

    No, you are not. I would normally be alot more depressed about how much this is going to suck than I am, but Derek Luke as Puff promises to bring us to new heights of unintentional comedy, and I cant be mad at that. Also, for those keeping score :

    BIG>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    I’m watching this without sound, and its still fucking hilarious. How is that possible?

  5. Ghost Writer Says:

    I wonder what a Tupac movie would be like….

    I would kill to see anyone playing Pac during the School of Performing Arts/horrible gumby/effeminate era.

  7. Eccentric heights Says:

    i just hope in the end this will be worth watching and be at least a decent movie

  8. Joe 88 Says:

    I wonder what a Tupac movie would be like….

    ^He already had a movie “ressurection” (sp?) And it totally kicked ass. every scene in the movie he explained with was a time frame in his life, starting all the way from his childhood, to his stay in baltimore, to his first shooting & so fourth.

    Tupac’s movie > Biggie’s movie

    This will not be a debate. That movie was the only movie I wanted to see the first day it came out

    ***Nah, but they had “Hakeem” from Moesha (RIP) playing Pac in their MC Hammer biopic…that shit scored a 387 out of a possible 10 pts on the unintentional comedy scale…

    ^^
    I think your referring to the hilarious Hammer movie, in which Pac was played by Hakeem (RIP) from Moesha. There was a scene in which Pac had to sleep in the stu because he simply couldnt match Hammer’s work ethic. Classic shit.

  16. green eyes Says:

    lol @ jpe– i wasnt talking about resurrection, but the one where that cat from moesha played him… or was that a hammer movie? i just remember it sucked

  22. Joe 88 Says:

    Oh, how could I forget the hammer movie on vh1. The scene when hammer was shooting the pumps in a bump video while his wife & child looked on was priceless.

    Fuck that, that whole movie was priceless, i’m gonna look for that shit on youtube right now

    I don’t know where that came from? (n/h) And I was wrong, MTV did the ressurection movie

    well this is kinda disrespectful. the only thing biggie did better than g rap was the lady/party songs. well g rap hasnt even taken a shot at those. also, no biggie without g rap.

  29. icon (trillbert arenas) Says:

    @ Joe- co-sign the Resurrection flick, though…that jawn should have won an Oscar, and fuck it, if I sound ignorant saying that, lol…it was eerie, how they put random interviews together, and made it seem like a dead man was narrating his own story…

    ^I wouldn’t say that exactly.

    ^exactly. My homeboy went to sleep in the movies soon as they showed the interviews of him with the half black half blonde gumby, lol, he was kinds hurt over that part of the movie, but I couldn’t stop watching it, like you said it was crazy how they combined in the interviews with his life events, even in the vegas scene it seemed like he was overlooking it & speaking on it after it already happen. The special features on the dvd are priceless

    pac was prolly the first rapper with his own reality show, cause no other rapper at that time had that much footage. studio footage, hella interviews, they had this nigga in the studio doing a christmas song that never got released, I never knew he did a christmas song

  47. spotrusherz Says:

    juicy is the most overrated hip-hop song of all times

    ^^
    No double disk is flawless, but L.A.D. came closest (yep, closer than Wu-Tang Forever). And All Eyez on Me (while kinda dope) is almost as overrated as Me Against the World.

  53. Joe 88 Says:

    co-sign the “there’s no perfect double disc” comments. Not even All eyes, but Imo that’s the closes one. LAD had waaaaaaay too many fillers, but just like all eyes, blueprint2, the bangers was really bangers, so to some they over shadow the fillers

  54. sleep Says:

    Gentrification is ruin a criminal aura of brooklyn. What about the new generation of rappers coming out of bk. What will they rap about. Their building million dollars condos blocks from marcy.
