There is no surprise that Christopher Wallace, aka Notorious B.I.G., and Faith Evans would have a huge influence on their son, Christopher Jr, aka CJ, in terms of music. And it looks like they have. CJ, who is only 20 years old, is reportedly getting ready to release his debut album, alongside his half-brother Joshua Jahad Russaw. They’re a duo known as CJ and Jahad, and their project is supposed to come out later this year.
CJ knew from the start that music was going to be a part of his life, especially considering his parents were hip hop legends of their time. “At a young age I always knew I wanted to do music, it was inevitable. My family always had my back, whatever I’ve wanted to do they’ve supported. They were always giving me advice on what to do and how to go about things,” he told the Evening Standard. That’s not all he’s interested in.
Biggie Jr. also wants to pursue a career in filmmaking, particularly in order to tell the story of his younger half-brother who has autism. “I’d like to tell the story of what he is going through. A lot of people don’t understand. I want to bring awareness to that and special needs in general,” he said. Looks like Biggie’s baby is no longer a baby. He is grown and ready to take on the world, while potentially educating others through film. While we wait what a Biggie Jr. project would sound like, watch his freestyle “On Me” below:
