Even though it’s been nearly 20 years since the Notorious B.I.G. died, he’s still got stories to tell. Or at least the stories he shared with listeners through his music still resonate. That much can be seen in the new short film based on the rapper’s track “I Got a Story to Tell.”
The 8-minute film visualizes much of what Biggie raps about on his 1997 track from Life After Death: infidelity (via The Boombox). In the song, an NBA player returns home to find his wife in a compromising position with the rapper. Rather than let the baller get a one-up on him, Biggie pulls a gun to get out of the situation but not before taking $1,000 as well.
The dark and moody film finds a basketball player returning home early after being suspended from the game to discover his wife has been cheating on him. But this time, the young man playing the Notorious B.I.G. character takes a lot more than $1,000.
Model Amina Blue plays the cheating wife, Ade Otukoya plays the character based on Notorious B.I.G. and Delano Barbosa plays the NBA player.
