To fill the shoes of a rap colossus like New York hip-hop legend Notorious B.I.G. is a brave feat to say the very least, even for his 20-year-old son, Christopher Jordan Wallace.
So he won’t try to, according to a recent interview with the Evening Standard, and instead will be using his rap legend descendant status to fuel the fire beneath his own rap career beginning with an album.
It goes without saying that as the only son of the late and great rap idol, the musical influences he’s been exposed to since birth are vast. Revealing that his family has always supported him, Wallace has been fortunate enough to have guidance from them as well.
“At a young age I always knew I wanted to do music, it was inevitable,” he told the Evening Standard. “My family have always had my back, whatever I’ve wanted to do they’ve supported. They were always giving me advice on what to do and how to go about things.”
