Big Pun Movie: The Legacy

After Notorious any film production company would really be taking a risk on a major release with a hip hop biopic...this looks like it'll end up going straight to DVD. Release date is September 15th. It doesn't look like by "Legacy" they're going to cover Chris Rios's difficult and unhappy childhood, self destructive tendencies, pistol whipping his wife and reportedly leaving his publishing to Fat Joe rather than his kids (a lot of which probably springs to a lot of people's minds at the same time as his classic album Capital Punishment). I'm not hating, merely bored by the idea of watching every rapper on the planet talking about how Pun was "really in the streets" but not going any deeper than that, to help paint a realistic and detailed picture of this inspirational & legendary rap artist who died so young of a heart attack, cutting his legacy short.
