One of the images used was of Notorious B.I.G. as well as Tupac Shakur. They also used images of Black Sabbath, Metallica, Pink Floyd, the Doors, Kiss and Led Zeppelin. The shirts went on sale on their website, selling for $125 each and featuring the logo “Repurposed in the USA.” Read more

It originally featured Rick and Lil Kim but Kim was dropped after Voletta Wallace, Biggie’s mother, withdrew approval for the song to feature the Lil Kim Who Shot Ya sample verses. Kim was therefore dropped from the song. It is no secret that Kim and Ms. Wallace don’t get along.

Lil’ Kim appeared on Big Boy’s Neighborhood radio show and she again expresses her frustration with the Notorious movie and Voletta Wallace. She calls Ms. Wallace a sick woman.
Lil Kim won’t stop talking about how much she hates the movie Notorious, how she was dissed, blah blah blah. Voletta Wallace responded, again, to Kim’s ramblings. Kim thought Naturi Naughton was too dark to play her. Here’s Ms. Wallace response via Hip Hop Weekly:
“She felt the character we chose for her was ‘too dark,’ ” Wallace said. “Do you know why the character was too dark for her? Because she’s a white woman trapped in a black woman’s body, and you can tell the world I said it, because those are Lil’ Kim’s words. She should be ashamed of herself.”
Ms. Wallace wasn’t through:
“Tell Lil’ Kim to go find herself, go Read more
The Associated Press reports that Kim released a statement saying:
“The film studio and producers involved were more concerned about painting me as a ‘character’ to create a more interesting story line instead of a person with talent, self-respect and who was able to achieve her own career success through hard work.”
She added: “Even though my relationship with Big was at times very difficult and complicated (as with most relationships we have all experienced at one time or another), it was also genuine and built on great admiration and love for each other. Regardless of the many lies in the movie and false portrayal of me to help carry a story line through, I will still continue to carry his legacy through my hard work and music.”
Well Voletta Wallace, Biggie’s mom, said in an interview Monday:
“This is not a Lil Kim movie,” she said. “This is a Christopher Wallace movie. It has nothing to do with Lil Kim. If she’s disappointed and upset, that is her problem.”

Lil Kim is reportedly upset at the way that she is portrayed in the upcoming Biggie bio-pic, Notorious, and feels like she should have had a larger role in the storyline and the making of the movie. She is mad at Biggie’s mother, Voletta Wallace, and his wife, Faith Evans.
“I’ve had enough and I’m about to expose them both… I’ve been quiet for a long time,” Lil Kim told HipHop Weekly, “I’m very disappointed in Faith… There’s nothing Faith or Ms. Wallace could do to stop me from reppin’ B.I.G. all day. I’m gonna always do that… It’s time for Ms. Wallace to be exposed.”
This should be interesting, what could she possibly have on Ms. Wallace? She is funny about being disappointed in Faith, she was messing with Faith’s husband but she’s disappointed in Faith? That’s some funny ish right there.
