Gravy the NEw BIGGie Uh!
Jamal Woolard - The Notorious B.I.G.
Angela Bassett - Voletta Wallace
Derek Luke - Sean Combs f/k/a Puff Daddy
Anthony Mackie - Tupac Shakur
Here’s what the Hollywood Reporter had to say:
Woolard, who also is known as Gravy, is not a total unknown. He has
released a number of albums, though he’s perhaps best known for
being shot before a radio appearance outside the New York hip-hop
station Hot 97 two years ago, after which he proceeded with the
interview and became a part of hip-hop lore.
Like Biggie, Woolard was a drug dealer before he became a rapper.
He had released a number of albums on indie labels in the 1990s
before being signed by Warner Bros.
