Christopher George Latore Wallace Jr. (born October 29, 1996), also known by his stage names Lil Biggie Smalls and Lil Biggie, is an American actor. He is commonly referred to as Christopher Jordan Wallace.[1] He is the son of rapper The Notorious B.I.G.

Early life

Wallace was born in New York City on October 29, 1996. He is the son of singer Faith Evans and late rapper, Christopher "The Notorious B.I.G." Wallace, who was murdered in March 1997, when Wallace was just four months old.[2] He has a paternal half-sister and three maternal half-siblings.

Career

Wallace's breakthrough role was in the 2009 biopic Notorious. In 2010, he starred in the comedy film Everything Must Go,[3][4][5] but did not have another acting role until starring in the 2016 adventure film Kicks.[6] In 2019, he played Amir in the third season of the VH1 slasher series Scream.[7][8]

Wallace, alongside his previous stepfather Todd Russaw and fellow entrepreneur Willie Mac, launched a cannabis company called Think BIG in March 2019.[9] The brand aims to challenge the public's perception of cannabis by launching brands, products, and collaborations that emphasize "curiosity, creativity, contemplation, and healing". The brand also prioritizes social justice initiatives.[10] In April 2019, the company launched a brand of cannabis called Frank White, named after Wallace's father's alter-ego,[11] as well as pre-rolls of cannabis in collaboration with Lowell Herb Co.[12]
