NEWSFLASH!! Tupac Shakur and Christopher ‘B.I.G.’ Wallace have been spotted in Atlanta!
Demetrius Shipp, Jr. and Jamal ‘Gravy’ Woolard have been cast to play the roles of 2pac and Biggie in the upcoming biopic, ‘All Eyez On Me,’ which is in production right now in our great city.
The pair are eerily reminiscent of the fallen superstars and have been creating quite a buzz on these ATL streets as they’ve been filming scenes around town.
As you know, Woolard will be reprising the role of Biggie, which he received rave reviews back in 2009 when he played the namesake role in “Notorious.”
[Sidebar: Datum… talk about type casting! I guess Jamal will have to be ‘Biggie’ for the rest of his life.]
Anywhoo… casting for the other roles in the film were just as spot on and even Suge Knight is a dead ringer!
Check out a few photos of the ‘All Eyez On Me’ cast below… Continue Reading…

Entrepreneur Peter Thomas catches mad flack on The Real Housewives of Atlanta for his blunt responses and is mostly viewed as Cynthia Bailey‘s disgruntled husband these days.
Thomas is very well known around town as the owner/operator of Bar One and previous other spots like the now defunct Uptown Supper Club, but did you know Peter was a part of hip-hop history?
Back in 1997, Thomas was a popular concert promoter and he was apparently with Christopher Wallace (aka Notorious B.I.G.) just minutes before he died.
Peter was even interviewed during coverage of Biggies death the day he died, March 9, 1997.

Wallace isn’t putting a stop to the entire song, just the 16 bars that Lil Kim laid down on the track.
Monica hit up Twitter to express her disappointment in Ms. Wallace’s decision and said she’s going to do whatever it takes to keep Lil Kim on the project… Continue Reading…
