Biggie Smalls’ mother, Volleta Wallace, also declared that the LAPD is withholding critical information.
On the 20th anniversary of the late iconic rapper’s still unresolved murder, Volleta Wallace opened up to The Daily Mail. The 64-year-old mother of the late Notorious BIG told the magazine that she hurts “every single day.” She painfully acknowledges that she will never see her son again and the killer remains at large.
She told the Daily Mail,
“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.”
Christopher Wallace, better known as Notorious BIG or Biggie Smalls, was killed at only 24 years old. The rapper’s killer had pulled up alongside his vehicle after Biggie Smalls left a music industry party. The rapper died on March 9th, 1997, after receiving four bullets. Sources told DailyMail.com that Notorious BIG may have been the unintended target the night of the shooting.
Volleta Wallace told the Daily Mail that she as well as the LAPD know who killed her son.
“I have a very good idea who murdered Christopher and I genuinely believe that the LAPD know exactly who did, too. They’ve done their investigation, but they just refuse to move forward. I don’t know why they haven’t arrested who was involved.”
Wallace believes that the LAPD may actually be protecting the killer, hence the failed investigations.
“It seems to me that it’s one giant conspiracy, and someone is definitely being protected somewhere down the line.”
Wallace has since turned to God for answers. A devout Christian, she explains,
“I get by, using religion to ease my pain. But that’s not easy. It helps a little, but it’s a far cry from bringing Christopher back to life.”
Despite knowing who the killer is, Volleta Wallace has not given a name. She still wants closure, but the more time passes without an arrest, she may never receive it.
