Notorious B.I.G.’s Son To Portray Late Father In New Time Studios Documentary

‘Understanding Christopher Wallace’ will examine the legacy of the Brooklyn rapper through the perspective of his son.

Time Studios is creating a new documentary about the Notorious B.I.G.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Understanding Christopher Wallace will tell the life story of the legendary Brooklyn rapper through the lens of his son C.J. Wallace.

While still in development, the documentary promises “an intimate look at the untold life story of one of the greatest rappers to ever live … from the perspective of the son who never knew him,” the outlet reports.

“Over the past few years, I realized my personal journey is connected to understanding who Christopher George Latore Wallace was outside of his big rap persona,” C.J. said in a statement via THR. “I am on a journey to fully understand the world he lived in and the massive impact he had on American and Black history and by doing so, I can ensure that I honor his hopes and dreams while I build and create my own legacy for future generations of Wallaces.”

Biggie Smalls was shot and killed in 1997 at the age of 24. C.J., the son of the hip-hop legend and Grammy-winning singer Faith Evans, was only five months old at the time. The project “is a dual narrative that navigates between the lives of both Christopher Jr. and Sr. – from the 2020’s back to the 1980’s – exploring concepts of identity, legacy, and fatherhood,” Time Studios said in the statement. “As C.J. chases a deeper understanding of his own destiny, his quest uncovers a more holistic portrait of his dad than the world has ever known.”

Evans, along with Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s Lil Cease, Lil Kim, and Jadakiss, among others, are also slated to appear in the documentary.
