While Kim spilled a little tea, she’s not quite ready to reveal which actress she wants to portray her in the film. Fans can recall the controversial casting of the 2009 blockbuster “Notorious,” which chronicled Biggie’s rise to fame. ‘Power‘ actress Naturi Naughton, 38, was selected to play her in the film in which  the “Crush On You” rapper publicly voiced her disdain on the casting selection.
