The Notorious B.I.G. is arguably one of our greatest storytellers in hip-hop. So it’s no surprise that one of his classic songs, “I Got a Story to Tell,” gets turned into a short film.
If you are unfamiliar with the 1997 track, Biggie raps about a New York Knicks player coming back home early to find him in his bed with his girlfriend. Naturally, the late rapper pulls out a gun on him to avoid any conflict and takes a $1,000 from the NBA player.
New York based director Aristotle Torres took the song and turned it into an 8-minute thrilling movie. The film, of course shows Biggie’s character named Wallace laying up in bed with the NBA baller’s wife. And just like in the song, when the Knicks player comes home, Wallace turns the situation into a stick up and leaves with some serious cash — $100,000 in a Prada bag.
The clip stars Yeezy Season model Amina Blue as the “shiesty bitch,” Delano Barbosa as the NBA baller and Ade Otukoya as the Biggie character. Peter Rosenberg also provides some vocal work as Barbosa is driving home and hearing about his loss.
The track resurfaced into the public mind two weeks ago when Fat Joe named the late Anthony Mason as the Knicks player mentioned in the song. Diddy later confirmed that it was indeed Mason that Biggie was talking about.
