Former Notorious B.I.G. paramour Charli Baltimore says she's never seen the 2009 biopic Notorious about the late rap star. Baltimore says she wasn't interested in the project because she felt only precious few individuals could tell Biggie's story effectively and accurately.
“I didn’t want to watch it and I didn’t feel like - nothing negative against anybody who was involved with the movie as far as the production of it - I just feel a certain way about who and what people should do [with] a B.I.G. movie," says Baltimore. "I know people who were in his day-to-day, everyday life. I was pretty vocal about that. This is just my opinion, no need for anybody to get their panties in a bunch, but the only people to me who could have shot an accurate descriptive portrayal of real life were Damion Butler, who is D-Roc, [Lil’] Cease and maybe Money L. And a guy named Seeth, who used to be around. But out of those four, definitely D-Roc, definitely Cease.”
“I don’t think anybody else could do an accurate portrayal of Big. The only reason I say that, and no disrespect to his mom, but she just wasn’t around everyday," she added. "People grow up. The way you present yourself to your parents when you see them on holidays or whatever, that’s not really how you are everyday. If your parents are coming over, you’re cleaning the house, you’re making everything situated. You’re going to kind of be on guard. These were people that were around him good times, bad times, whatever times. That’s just how I looked at it.”
