Biggie’s Son On Acting

Biggie’s son, CJ Wallace will return to the silver screen on May 13th in Will Ferrell’s new movie, Everything Must Go. The BVX interviewed the young actor about his role and his dad’s legacy.

BJ: You’re the son of the most perhaps beloved rapper ever, the Notorious B.I.G. Do you ever think about doing music?
CW: [If I did music], I feel that a lot would be expected of me, and I’m definitely not up to where my father was. Acting just came randomly. I wasn’t even into it at first. When I did ‘Notorious,’ my grandma, Ms. [Voletta] Wallace, she told me that I should come in and read for the part as my father. Honestly, I didn’t want to do it. I didn’t want to do it because it seemed so likely for me to do it, like Biggie’s son is going to play Biggie. After I had my acting coach and really read through it, I started to find out things that I didn’t know about him. Then I took more of an interest into it. It was actually fun, going out to New York, living like him, going into his old apartment, doing what he did. It was cool.

Heads up: Mr. Parker

    This kid doesn’t have an ego.

    He sounds down to earth. That’s awesome.

    And you guys need to fix your grammer. It is supposed to be “Biggie’s son on acting” not “Biggie son on acting”

    He seems very humbling, and plus I agree, making music would be a lot of work

    he seem really humble doesn,t he? i really wonder what he would rap about if he did become a rapper and all cause hes father would rap about the streets all day every day….cause that is the invironment that he came from.he seems like he stays in the house alot and play video games…ha maybe he could rap about video gaming instead.
