It's a New Year Scopers and T.G.I.F !!!! And here is the latest in Urban Entertainment headlines....
This week opened with Lil Kim expressing her dissapointment to Hip Hop on the way she was portrayed in the biopic Notorious.
Well Biggie's mom, Voletta Wallace, responded via Esscence saying this:
ESSENCE.COM: (Laughs.) Definitely. Is there something you discovered about your son and his legacy while watching the film?
WALLACE: (Laughs.) I gained strength from it. There were things about him that I never knew that I wanted to see for myself on film. I saw a side of my son that I heard of but I haven’t accepted. I’m angered by certain things, disappointed and shocked. So this film taught me tolerance and to be less critical. I would love to speak to Lil’ Kim, because I need to ask more about this love relationship because I really didn’t like the way he treated her and I’m praying that that’s not it. Only she can answer those questions. She’s a sweet girl and I didn’t think she deserved to be treated the way he treated her, if that’s the case.
To little to late? Or do you think the two can find common ground after the big screen?
