“Now I’m trying to make it happen. Keeping it real. This is my story,” says Biggie. In the doc, we see a young Biggie visiting his old Bed Stuy block, smoking lots of weed and a very young (and almost unrecognizable) Lil Kim. “All I wanted to do was hustle,” Big reminisces about his youth. “It’s all real man.”
We also see great footage of Biggie’s mama Voletta Wallace. “That’s why I’m furious with you!” she chides her son for not returning her phone calls. “He was very sweet, very cuddly. A good student,” remembers Voletta about her little boy. “He’s just Christopher to me.” There’s footage of Biggie’s then-wife, Faith Evans too. “I’m never really that jealous,” says a seemingly high Faith. “He’s a real nice person. That’s why I love him”
We’ll always love Big Poppa too. R.I.P. Biggie.
