Biggie’s Son Christopher Wallace Jr Reflects On Bad Boy’s Legacy
The Bad Boy family just wrapped up round two of epic performances and guest appearances at the Barclay Center. Yet in addition to celebrating 20 years of hits, the reunion was dedicated to celebrating the life and legacy of the Notorious B.I.G., on what would have been his 44th birthday. Christopher Wallace Jr., Biggie’s son, also took the time to reflect on the memorable night.
“It’s crazy seeing the crowd’s reaction for me,” he said standing behind the Bad Boy stage. “It’s crazy seeing the effect that the music’s had on people for over 20 years and still being able to bring that vibe and spirit and all that energy into the arena.”
You may remember a younger Christopher when he played his father as a child in the 2009 Notorious biopic. The reunion concert, which sold out in 20 minutes, brought out thousands of fans who enjoyed the hits of some of the most influential artists dating back from the 90s until now.
“To play all the same songs, it’s pretty amazing. All those artists, it’s really unforgettable. I knew I couldn’t miss it,” he added. Joining the stage alongside Puff Daddy, was Lil Kim, Faith Evans (Christopher’s mother), Mary J. Blige, Total, Mase, Jay Z, and many more. The group went through hit after hit, including the tribute single, “I’ll Be Missing You,” which closed out the show.
Bad Boy will continue the show on their North American tour in August, starting in Columbus, Ohio, and ending in Oakland, California in October. For more information on how to cop tickets, you can head here. But in the meantime, check out Christopher’s interview below.
