Graduation ceremony: Faith Evans shared a photo on Instagram at the high school graduation of her son Christopher Wallace Jr with the late rapper Notorious BIG

New York City rapper Notorious BIG, real name Christopher Wallace, was shot and killed in Los Angeles in March 1997 when his son was only five months old.

Their son, who also goes by Cee Jay, last year released a rap song with collaborator Jahad called School Knites.

His late rapper father, also known as Biggie Smalls, and R&B singer Faith married in August 1994 after meeting at a Bad Boy records photoshoot.

Wow, good for CJ.  Living the good life in sunny Californ-I-A.  It’s crazy to think that Biggie has been dead for 17 years already, let alone that his then-infant son is now a high school graduate.  Obviously having his father pass away when he was so young is terrible, but having the greatest MC of all time as your father is something to be extremely proud of.  If this doesn’t cause you to binge-listen to classic Biggie the rest of the day, nothing will.

PS- Thinking of a young version of Biggie brings back memories of one of the most underrated videos ever.
