Notorious premieres January 19th, 2009 (one day before Inauguration Day). While I’m excited to see if a hip hop biopic can be done accurately and still maintain some dignity for the artists and fans, I fully anticipate that I will be not only let down, but also insulted. There is hope however. Having Cheo Coker as a co-writer MAY balance out some of the fuckery that I would normally expect from a hip hop based biopic (read: Get Rich or Die Tryin’ & Krush Groove).
