LOS ANGELES, CA Thursday Aug.30.2007 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- Starpulse.com reports that "Beautiful Girls" star Sean Kingston has been tapped to play Notorious B.I.G. in a biopic about the slain rapper's life.

Kingston is not the only hip-hop star associated with the project, the film is being produced by Sean 'Diddy' Combs.

Kingston says, "When I first heard about that movie, it was through management. My management told me about it and you know I had auditioned for it and I met with the director and I nailed it and he gave me a shot now at being in the movie."

Notorious B.I.G., whose real name was Christopher Wallace, died in 1997 after being shot outside a Los Angeles party.
