As the release date for Notorious, a biopic about the Notorious B.I.G., nears, some unreleased songs from the late rapper's demo tapes have started circulating on the internet.
Last month one of the film's producers said he had surprises for the Biggie biopic soundtrack.
"We kept everything as is, in its raw form," Wayne Barrow told the Hollywood Insider. "This is what got him the deal, plain and simple. His fans have been asking for it for years." (SOHH)
Though the soundtrack won't officially hit stores until January 13th hip-hop blogs have already begun posting the demos.
