For the movie Notorious there was nearly 100 people that auditioned for the part of Notorious B.I.G.which shows how many people are inspired and want to be him. Everyone that came to audition were men of all ages and backgrounds showing up on foot, in escalades or late model sedans, but all one body type. To play the part of Biggie you needed to weigh nearly 300 pounds, and a easy-flowing but hard-to-imitate style.“Anyone who felt that they can fill that shoe, can do that swagger, can try the lyrical tone, I’m welcoming them,” Ms. Wallace said, who is Biggie’s mother. This shows how proud of her son she is and how passionate she is about him. To many people the Notorious B.I.G is someone that they want to be because of everything he has been through. Mr. Kyei was the man who got the call back out of everyone else, because he was laid back and was himself.
