Twenty years after her son's death, Voletta Wallace, mother of hip-hop legend The Notorious B.I.G., revealed she and the LAPD knew her son's killer. Find out more!


Christopher George Latore Wallace, popularly known as The Notorious B.I.G or Biggie, was an American rapper and songwriter before he died on March 9, 1997, at 24 years.

The star was murdered in a drive-by shooting while he was visiting Los Angeles. However, a double album was released two weeks after his death and achieved a diamond certification in the US.

On the 20th anniversary of the rapper's brutal murder, his mother, Voletta Wallace, spoke about her pain. She noted that the heartbreak of losing her son never went away.

In an interview with Daily Mail, Wallace revealed that she went through severe pain. The knowledge that she was never going to see her son again coupled with the fact that the killer had not been found was unbearable.


Speaking further, the mother of the hip-hop legend claimed she and the Los Angeles Police Department officers in charge of the case had identified the culprit.


A source who was with Biggie on the night of his murder said the bullet was payback for Shakur's death.

She explained that the police had done their investigation and refused to carry on with the arrest. According to her, the identity of someone involved was protected, and everything was a giant conspiracy.


Wallace said she would not rest until her son's killer is put behind bars. It was nothing but tears for the matriarch, and she revealed that she turned to God for answers.

Biggie never experienced the best childhood. Having a Jamaican immigrant for a mother and selling crack as a young boy, the rap sensation fell into a lot of trouble at a young age.


According to rumors, the icon's death was linked to Tupac Shakur who was murdered on September 7, 1996. A source who was with Biggie on the night of his murder said the bullet was payback for Shakur's death.

Four years after the interview with Daily Mail, Wallace spoke with EW during the promotion of the documentary, "Biggie: I Have a Story to Tell." She said being alive meant there was hope for her.


She hoped that her friends and family would carry on with the fight when she is no more. Friends to the deceased, Butler and Wayne Barrow, revealed the new date of the anniversary of the murder as May 21.

Wallace was overwhelmed after it was revealed that her son's legacy would live on. On January 15, 2020, it was announced that The Notorious B.I.G would be inducted into the 2020 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Later that year, his name was officially printed in the sands of time alongside icons like Whitney Houston.
