The producers of the much talked about Biggie biopic have selected Brooklyn rapper Gravy to portray the late Christopher Wallace in the film. I don’t think this guy is a particularly good or bad choice, but I’m going to need some convincing that he can actually pull this off respectably. Sure he looks like Big, he can rap (ha!) and he’s from Brooklyn, but I’m guessing he can’t act his way out of a paper bag. And not for nothing, but he was rumored to be in line for the role nearly two years ago, so what was the point of auditioning every greasy pickle juice drinking bastard in America?
Anyway, whenever I think of Gravy, I remember this hilarious video that him and his peoples shot for a SMACK DVD way back when. I can remember me and my boy being baked out of our skulls and falling over laughing watching this.
The staircase scenes are especially golden with the mean-mugging entourage in the back waving dated guns on some straight up caricature shit.
