Yesterday, Kacey hung with the superstar actress and other cast members from the upcoming film Notorious, which tells the story of superstar rapper The Notorious B.I.G. (born Christopher Wallace), aka Biggie Smalls, who was shot to death in 1997 during the so-called “East Coast-West Coast” rap wars.

In addition to interviewing Angela – who plays Biggie’s mom, Voletta Wallace – the Chrysler Radio host was treated to a tour of Biggie’s Brooklyn home, school and other points of interest in the ‘hood.

“Ms. Wallace said she was amazed at how perfectly Angela portrayed her,” Kacey tells us. “She also said Jamal Woolard [who plays Biggie] wasn’t acting. He was The Notorious B.I.G.”

As for his take on the Biggie flick, Kacey sees “big” box-office busi- ness when it opens January 16.

“I give it five stars!” raves Kacey. “Most def a must-see.”
