Notorious B.I.G. was one of the most legendary artists in the history of hip-hop. The rapper was shot to death by an unknown assailant 20 years ago on this very day, and the case was never officially solved. Now, Biggie's mom Voletta Wallace is remembering her son and reflects on his untimely demise in an exclusive interview with The Daily Mail.
"It hurts me every single day to know what happened to Christopher and that I won’t see him ever again. And it’s not just me that is devastated, his sister T’yanna hurts every day because of his loss. As a family, we’ve collectedly grieved and it doesn’t ever get any better for us ... Any mother who has lost a child knows exactly the devastation I feel, it’s the worst pain in the world and one that I wouldn’t wish upon my worst enemy," said Wallace.
Wallace was clearly hesitant to discuss the details of the murder of her child: "I don’t really like to talk about it. I know there will be a few tributes in honor of Christopher, and that’s great he’s still remembered, but it’s very tough for me and my family."
But as the interview goes on, Wallace makes some shocking claims: "I have a very good idea who murdered Christopher and I genuinely believe that the LAPD know exactly who did too ... It seems to me that it’s one giant conspiracy, and someone is definitely being protected somewhere down the line."
