  • July 7 - Rapper Sues Biggie Documentary Producers for $5 Million

    William Troy McCune, a New York rapper in the late 80’s and early 90’s, is suing the producers of Notorious B.I.G.: Bigger Than Life for $5 million.



    In the suit, McCune alleges the producers included footage of him battling Brooklyn legend Notorious B.I.G. without his permission.



    “This segment of the Plaintiff (McCune) and Christopher Wallace is shown throughout the video and is a dominant feature in the extras portion,” the complaint reads. “The use of the photograph, image, and likeness of the Plaintiff, in the video by the Defendants, jointly and severally, and acting in active concert was unauthorized.”



    Defendants named in the suit include: director Peter Spirer, co-producer dream hampton, Rugged Entertainment, and Aslan Productions.



    The documentary, released in August 2007, included interviews with Method Man, E-40, and Easy Mo Bee.



    The feature gained exposure by being the first film to detail the confrontation between E-40 and Biggie over a quote misunderstanding. McCune could not be reached for comment
