Notorious B.I.G.'s Mom Once Revealed She Did Not Cry at His Funeral

"Biggie Small's" mother couldn't seem to cry at the East Coast icon's funeral; However, even though she wasn't a fan of it when he was alive, his music brought her to tears from his grave.


"There are no origins from what rap planet this guy came from," Diddy says in a Netflix special about Notorious B.I.G. This statement rings true, the rapper remaining in the heart of hip-hop culture to this day.

Outside of his public cult-following, a family remains behind, still grieving the loss of someone more than just a rapper to them. One of them, his mother, Voletta Wallace (64), opened up about her son's death.

Wallace said that although she loved him dearly, she struggled to cry at her son's funeral, devoid of tears. It wasn't until she listened to his album "Life After Death" that she was brought to her knees, she expressed:


“I cried so much that day just listening to the music. I remember I sat, I stood. I rested my head on the stereo and I just cried like a baby."

Before the rap icon passed, Wallace didn't pay much attention to his music, even having referred to it as "noise." Biggie himself discouraged her from listening to his music.



Beyond his talent as an MC, Christopher Wallace was by all known accounts a brilliant child. The rhythmical poet was already writing in elementary school.

Many believed that both Biggie and Diddy were involved in Tupac's death.

In an infamous incident, Notorious B.I.G.'s musical talent, and intellectual potential were cut short. On March 9, 1997, he was shot four times at a red by a mysterious individual in a black Chevy, which led to his death.



Many theories surround "Big Poppa's" passing on March 9, 1997, some linking it to a rivalry between him and Tupac and others purporting that the shooter was actually after Diddy. His mother claimed:

"I have a very good idea who murdered Christopher and I genuinely believe that the LAPD know exactly who did too."

Wallace is perplexed and doesn't understand why the department hasn't cuffed the alleged involved parties. She believes that someone is being protected, preventing the gavel of justice from slamming down.



A retired FBI agent, Phil Carson, claims that Amir Muhammad executed the 24-year-old artist. He purportedly did so in exchange for payment from Death Row Records founder Marion “Suge” Knight.

Carson, who was on the case for two years, alleges that the bullets were meant for Diddy. Biggie's death occurred six months after Tupac, who was signed to Death Row Records, was also fatally shot.


Many believe that both Biggie and Diddy were involved in Tupac's death. Underlying all this was an ongoing hip-hip coastal feud; Biggie from the East and Tupac from the West were already engaged in a strained relationship.

Diddy was the founder of Bad Boy's Records, the East-coast version of Knight's Death Row Records. The Netflix special on Biggie reveals his last interview where he pleads for an end to the coastal rivalry.
