Violence At The Showing Of The movie Notorious

The movie Notorious (Fox Searchlight) a biopic about the life of rapper Biggie Smalls, has opened well-above industry expectations with about $9M on Friday and, as that could mean about $29M in ticket sales over the 4-day MLK weekend. But there will be no more tickets sold at the Grand 18 at Four Seasons Station theater complex in Greensboro, NC. More Here.....

I never understood what Biggie contribute to the community in order to have a movie made about him. Because I am not of the Hip Hop generation is one reason I don't get it. Every thing that I have read or heard about him has center around crime and violence.
Some people saw Biggie as simply a drug dealer turned rapper but he was also a man, son, father and friend. I was hoping the movie would show the human side of him. I thought maybe showing the different aspects of him as a person and making him more real that violence wouldn't show up.
I guess I was wrong!
