CHRISTOPHER WALLACE JR:I WANT TO BE A RAPPER AND A COLLEGE GRADUATE
Christopher Wallace Jr. a.k.a Biggie jr, the son of the late rapper Notorious B.I.G’s, will star in an upcoming film about his father titled “Notorious”. 12-year-old Christopher, whose mother is singer Faith Evans, says that he had to tap into his own inner feelings of never knowing his dad in order to get emotional in scenes: “My acting coach said I should think about if he was alive, how I miss him, and I really got into it.”
Christopher was just four months old when his father was shot in 1997; Sadly, Christopher never had a chance to get to know his dad. His mother, Faith Evans, helped prepare young Wallace for the role: “My mum told me some of the stuff he used to do. Like how he rubbed his nose sometimes. And then I got some of my character’s scenes six or seven months before we actually shot the film, so I went over that stuff a lot.”
Christopher plans on following in his father’s footsteps by going into music industry, but he first hopes to attend college: “(I’ll) probably (go into rap). But I want to go to college. And I want to graduate and study film.”
Movie “Notorious” will feature Christopher Jr as a young Notorious B.I.G and is due out on January 19th of next year.
