Notorious was actually a pretty decent movie. Besides the absence of a lot of a few of the great New York personalities of the 90's (Jay-z, Nas, FunkMaster Flex, Angie Martinez, etc etc...) it was iite. They did a pretty good job of capturing the growth of one of the greatest MC's ever. While at the same time giving the audience and entertaining experience with exceptional Hip Hop scoring.
A few things that could have been worked on more were, Diddy ( he shoulda played himself ), Pac (that guy wasn't Pac....I didnt believe it), and Angela Basset coulda upped the Jamaican accent.
