There’s much to be said about a woman who still champions for her son even after he has passed and Voletta Wallace is no exception. As the mother of Notorious B.I.G. (birthed Christopher Wallace), Voletta has played an active role in paying homage to his memory. In Biggie’s biopic Notorious, Voletta was on set everyday to guide director Tillman, Jamal Woolard (who played B.I.G.) and Angela Bassett (who starred as Mrs. Wallace.) She also established the Christopher Wallace Foundation to help underprivileged kids in innercity schools.
