All three pictures showed the "Notorious" star dressed casually in a light green hoodie paired with a beige half sleeve jacket and jeans. He rocked this sophisticated look with matching beige Timbaland designer shoes.

The similarities between the father and son were noticeable especially when Wallace smiled in the first two pictures. There were also similarities between the 24-year-old and his mother, Faith Evans.

Despite growing up without his father, the "Scream" actor continues to honor his father's legacy with his cannabis company, Think BIG, which reportedly opened just days before the anniversary of the rapper's death in 2019.

[B.I.G.] was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to celebrate his musical achievements.

The icon's son admitted to sources that he felt closer to his father whenever he walked through the streets of Brooklyn as well as when he thought about his life as a young entrepreneur.

The Think BIG initiative was created by Wallace alongside his friend Willie Mack and it was launched in March 2018, to fight for the legalization of cannabis globally and advocate for criminal justice reform.

The inspiration behind the company was the 24-year-old's younger brother Ryder, who was born with autism. The aim of the company was therefore to sell their products to people in need.

The young entrepreneur was undoubtedly working hard to build his legacy while upholding his father's name. Last year, the "Big Poppa" singer was honored for his contributions to music with a place amongst the world's greatest.
