Rap Radar Interviews Ms. Wallace

Biggie’s mom Voletta Wallace, was in town yesterday to promote Platinum League trading cards. The cards features a slew of rappers including her son, The Notorious B.I.G.

Our conversation was great. She spoke on coping with her loss, B.I.G.’s appearance on Martin, VH1’s Behind The Music, and her decision to cremate him.

    BIGGIE = ONE OF THE MOST OVERRATED EVER. I UNDERSTAND WHY PAC WAS A LEGEND. LYRICS,BEATS,ACTING,AND WAS A SMART ASS DUDE. ALL BIGGIE DID WAS EAT CHEESEBURGERS AND HAVE PUFFY WIPE HIS ASS.

    ur a dumb nigga

  • DAT WHITE NIGGA

    @B.Dot Why am I a dumb nigga? Because I think Biggie is overrated. It’s my opinion, and I’ll stand by that shit. Pac shitted all over Biggie in every way possible. Biggie is only considered one of the best because of his beef with Pac and the fact that he died.

  • Ghost

    Haha fuck you are stupid. How do you even know how to use the internet?

  • Cause I Can

    Ye i gotta agree with @DAT WHITE NIGGA

  • B.Dot

    If u think Pac shitted on Big, fine. That’s your opinion. But to discredit B.I.G’s impact, influence and music as “overrated” is just asinine and ridiculous.

    @datwhite nigga.. I would respect ur opinion if it was more educated, for u to say big was overrated is blasphemist,

  • Big Al

    If you think he is overrated, you obviously don’t know shit about hip hop. So shut the fuck up and go listen to your soulja boy

  • F.I.V.E.

    @DAT WHITE NIGGA

    B.I.G.’s overrated? Wow dude, that’s one weird ass opinion… Nigga had Hip-Hop classics goin down the culture history. Lyrics are crack, wordplay is Unbelievable (no pun intended), flow is remarkable in Hip-Hop history. Personally, I prefer ‘Pac over Biggie, but you’re hear me dislocate Biggie from The Hip-Hop Hall of Fame.

  • DAT WHITE NIGGA

    Again, its my opinion. His lyrics were all just the same shit. Did he ever make a song like Brendas Got A Baby, or Changes? Or even Keep Ya Head Up? Those were all hip hop songs with a meaningful message. Why? Because Pac was a real nigga. And a smart dude. Biggie was just a one trick pony (or in this case, elephant). All of his songs were about the same shit. Pac could make a song about killing a nigga and the next song would be about some real life shit you could relate to. Pac also wasn’t a dickrider like BIG was with Puff.

  • DAT WHITE NIGGA

    My point is PAC is a legend. He was extremely talented. BIG was just another recycled rapper. If Biggie was out now, he’d be a post on this blog where niggas would comment “WHY THIS FAT NIGGA TRYING TO RAP? WACKK”.

  • DAT WHITE NIGGA

    OH AND PLUS EVEN HIS OWN MOM IS MILKING THIS NIGGA FOR EVERY PENNY. WHEN HE WAS ALIVE, IT WAS PUFFY. NOW THAT HE DEAD, ITS HIS MOM. I MAY NOT LIKE THE DUDE BUT I FEEL BAD AS FUCK ALL THESE PEOPLE CASHING IN ON HIM.

  • Trillionaire

    Wow, idiots have opinions to. Biggie was one of the best lyricist of all time, influenced generations, and is in your favorite rappers top list of best mc’s ever. Pac is definitely a legend and was bigger than music. Now to his hating ass, shady ass, petty ass momma. Somebody please take the Biggie estate away from this woman..lol Nah but on the real I never liked her after she dissed Lil Kim and the Notorius movie was the last straw..She ruined the true legacy by making the story the way she wanted it to be

    @ B.Dot

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • the One

    @Dat white Nigga, how the fuck did you even find out about this site?? From this day forward your opinion means shit as this site was even built on the backs of an artist like BIG! Dude you need to look for a new genre of music as you certainly don’t understand hip hop!

  • the One

    @Dat white Nigga
    I wise man once said ” Don’t argue with fools because people from a distance can’t tell who is who” So I have nothing more to say to you.

  • lilrizq

    R.I.P. B.I.G. And thanx for birthing a Legend Ms. Wallace.

  • Lawliet

    yeah to say that biggie is only recognized because of his beef w pac is just plain stupid.. this tells me that you’ve probably never listened to B.I.G. rhyme or that you flat out don’t know what it means to rhyme in the first place. both are great artist but Biggie would rhyme circles around pac any day of the week.

    Man,
    This is a strong sit down. I don’t know how you kept it together. But then again, Ms Wallace seems so easy to talk to. This interview will be forever favorited in hip hop’s archives. Rap Radar just got my stamp {not that it matters at all} for this one. This will be my first stop in HH news every time. YN & his RR team got it!

  • B.Dot

    Thank you

    B.I.G Respect that to anyone that would say he was not good or incredible and love for Pac but its not one or the other you actually like more than one song or artist at a time, do not know the age or demo of the people who would speak blasphemous of the eponymous Frank White

  • Itz Yourz

    Glad to see his mom still keeping his legacy alive.

    And to comment negative on something that has nothing to do with interview is unnecessary. If you don’t have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.

    And to us real niggas that do RNS know that biggie was PAC favorite emcee before there fallout. So you hating on someone that’s your favorite rapper..favorite rapper.

    He was great story teller, great empathizer, and a lyric craftsman, tthat was one of the best to do it.

    Case in point song “EVERYDAY STRUUGLE” …go listen to that and see if you can ID with it, if not then you shouldn’t even be talking about this man, obvious y’all cut from a different cloth.

  • TRUTH

    YOUR OPINION BUT JUST KNOW YOUR OUT NUMBERED HUGELY…..SO YOU MUST B WRONG. WHEN YOU GET DONE SPITTIN LIES LIKE FACTS…BIGGIE WAS THE HITCHCOCK OF HIP HOP U DUMB ASS….NOBODY AND I MEAN NOBDY BUT MAYBE NAS…CAN PAINT A PICTURE LIKE HIM.

  • musicneverdies

    pac was an all around better rapper, period. BIG had flow and lyrics no doubt, but at an emcee level, there was no question that tupac was better. his music wasn’t only music it was everyday life and struggle, shit that people saw everyday on the news. i’m not taking anything away from mr. wallace, but “that’s why i fucked yo bitch you fat mothafucka”

  • YunG based god

    biggie was the GOAT. some u u fools are ignorant as fuck. homie didnt even leave to see the release of his second album, he didnt even reach his prime

  • YunG based god
