At 9PM on January 16th, 2009, the Harlem MCs will open the doors to a movie theater in Harlem. They will be offering free admission to a showing of 'Notorious', the Notorious B.I.G. biopic film.
“I did it for hip-hop,” said Jones. “It’s as big as Obama’s being the first black president. This is part of our history in the urban community; Biggie was our first Obama.”
Juelz , meanwhile, takes a more personal view: “This is my way of saying thank you to Big. I never got a chance to meet him, so this is me as a Harlem dude saluting a cat from Brooklyn, in a small but meaningful way. Jim and I figured that so many people in the hip-hop community would be going to the see the movie individually; if we can make it so that everyone sees it together, that’s a great thing.”
