Hiphopdx has reported that unreleased demos from Biggie’s pre-Bad Boy days will be used in the up-coming Notorious biopic. However, producer Easy Mo Bee, who recorded many of Biggie’s early songs including “Party & Bullshit,” as well as a bulk of his debut, Ready to Die, will not be scoring any of the film.
“Mysteriously, the film was wrapped up and didn’t include me,” Mo Bee told The Urban Daily.com. “I had a consultant who was closely in touch with the film and with Bad Boy and for some reason, without any contact, they wrapped up the film and moved on without me. Actually, I’m kind of hurt by it because I’m the initial producer that B.I.G. started with. I’m the building block to the sound of Biggie.”
There is no word at press time as to whether the demos being used were produced by Easy Mo Bee.
