In a recent interview on New York’s Power 105.1, rapper, and former “girlfriend” of the Notorious B.I.G, Charli Baltimore, clarifies why she never saw the 2009 Film, Notorious. The feature-film told Biggie’s life-story, and featured his two leading ladies, ex-wife, Faith Evans and Bonnie to his Clyde, Lil’ Kim.

Kim publicly expressed disappointment in how she was portrayed in the film; but Baltimore, as the woman who played her position in the background, wasn’t in the movie at all — maybe that’s why she said that Voletta Wallace didn’t really know her son enough to create a film of his life.

Baltimore told Power 105.1 host, Cherry Martinez:

“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. 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 [Voletta Wallace], but she just wasn’t around everyday. 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.”


The 37 year-old Grammy nominated artist, who hasn’t been on the scene since her 2008 collaboration with Lil’ Wayne, is scheduled to release a new album on April 24th.
